Sample of Grommet Styles Produced
Insulation or Push In Grommets:
This style grommet is the most commonly used configuration.
Insulation grommets are used in applications where a wire,
tube or various other objects need to be passed through metal,
plastic or any material that may damage the outside surface of
the object while being installed or in use. They are typically
pushed into place and come in a variety of styles, the more
popular of which are shown above.
Manufactured to meet MIL-G-3036 and MS-35489, and AN-931
series specified rubber compounds. They insulate and seal
around holes cut into panels, while damping vibration and
minimizing abrasion. The compounds for these parts were
formulated to be used in an environment where fungus or high
heat may be an issue.
Vibration Mount Grommets:
They isolate vibration, shock, and noise and are easy to
install under machines and equipment such as generators, HVAC
equipment, electric motors, pumps, and blowers. These parts
are designed with flanges that are not equal. The thicker of
the flanges is intended to be the vibration isolator.
Blind and Plug Grommets:
These plugs do not allow things to permeate through them.
They are an extremely useful seal that can often replace a
grommet connection. Blind and Plug grommets are typically used
when a hole has been stamped into a panel for future use,
however, at the time of production the hole needs to be
