The Apple Rubber Seal Design Guide was first published in 1989 and quickly became more popular and successful than we could have ever hoped, with thousands of copies distributed.

This guide reflects the dynamic growth of Apple Rubber and our commitment to continually bring you new ideas and technologies in seals and other elastomeric products.

So much has happened since our first catalog. In fact, we're not really sure “catalog” is a fitting name for this edition. It will be used in many different ways by many different people – as a design guide, a reference, a handbook, a manual, a textbook, a research tool, and certainly, at times, a catalog.

Whatever you call it, however you may use it, this book is dedicated to helping you design a successful sealing solution. We hope you turn to it often and we thank you for your confidence in Apple Rubber.
