Bellows are mainly used for protection of devices with axial or radial movement to which different applications such as cable passage and pipes are associated (e.g. the passage of electrical cables from shell to door in the Automotive sector).
Rubber bellows are able to protect from dust, dirt, UV, wood or metal shavings, moisture, water spray or liquids in general, oils, chemicals and other environmental contaminants, while remaining flexible.
The particular mix are resistant to oils, grease-solvent and even some acid compounds, which extends the use of bellows to protect devices in environments heavily contaminated with lubricants and solvents: distributors and hydraulic valves, brake calipers, brake pumps, hydraulic cylinders and hydraulic systems in general.
Design types: cylindrical bellows, modular bellows, conical bellows, rectangular bellows
