AVK’s own rubber with uncompromising standards of excellence
No matter which industry you are in, it is essential that the rubber components inside your valves, hydrants and couplings are of the highest quality to ensure a safe, watertight seal and trouble-free operation, even after many years without use. Through our rubber factory, AVK GUMMI A/S, we develop and produce our own rubber components to make absolutely sure they meet and exceed our customers’ – and our own – uncompromising standards of excellence. Our gate valve wedge design and other market-leading innovations provide the reliability you need to safeguard your network, your supply and the health and safety of your customers. This is especially important for drinking water network operators, who can only be sure of an uncontaminated supply by choosing a valve supplier that gives such priority to quality and compliance.
Rubber compounds with unique ability to regain original shape
AVK’s rubber compounds have an excellent compression set, which means the ability to recover the original shape after having been compressed. Even after many years of operation, tiny pebbles, sand and other impurities will not affect the rubber surface or the tightness of the rubber.
