Specialist manufacturer of gaskets and seals, Extrudaseal, has agreed a year-long shirt sponsorship deal with South West rugby club, Blandford RFC.

The agreement sees Extrudseal sign up as a principal shirt sponsor for the first XV for the 2018/19 season.

Chris Byers, managing director of Extrudaseal, said: “While we’re sponsoring the first XV shirts, the commitment we have made will go into supporting the wider work of the club which includes children’s’ teams from the ages of three, right up to veterans’ rugby.

“It’s not simply about sport but the wider and important role the club plays within the local community, something which we’re delighted to be able to support.”

Manufacturing gaskets for a wealth of systems, including amongst others Smart, Aluk, Metaltech, Senior and Ikon, amongst others, Extrudaseal claims to have manufactured more than 20,000km of aluminium door gaskets in the last year.

Its product offer is also available in more than 1,000 RAL colours. According to Extrudaseal, this allows fabricators and installers to offer a colour-matched gasket and a perfect match to the increasingly diverse colour options being offered by window companies.
