Essential materials from Jehbco Silicones
During these unprecedented times, DesignBUILD exhibitor Jehbco is providing crucial ventilator parts which will make up a supply of locally made ventilators in the state of Victoria.
Jehbco silicone extrusions have been successfully employed to solve an extensive variety of construction-related challenges, including gap sealing, vibration dampening, wedging, expansion joint sealing and more. Not only can silicone extrusions be used directly as a construction material, but a wide range of custom made installation tools can also be developed to help lower installation and construction times, saving our clients a significant amount of time and money.
How is Jehbco helping?
Jehbco Silicones has been selected to be part of the Australian manufacturing consortium that will supply the NOTUS Emergency Invasive Ventilator Program, a Grey Innovation led initiative supported by the Victorian Government and Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC).
Jehbco will supply ventilator parts which will make up a supply of locally made ventilators with the first distribution of ventilators potentially in June. These ventilators will contribute to the overall purchase of 2000 ventilators by the Federal government.
Jehbco was ready to supply a project such as this, supplying locally made silicone tubing, seals, gaskets and o-rings to the medical and pharmaceutical industry for over 45 years to the Australian and international market.
Whilst Jehbco takes pride in the supply of Quickjoint (a solid silicone gap-sealing solution, exclusively distributed by Network Architectural) and other building products, the diversity of the business has ensured that Jehbco has weathered the crisis of Covid-19.
Jehbco Silicones supplies the construction, defence, rail, lighting, food and beverage industry with Australian made products.
