RCF HISTORY RCF Seals & Couplings, Inc was founded in 1975 by Jack M. Kramer, with the intention of designing and selling seals, couplings, ducting and gaskets to the commercial aviation industry. Kramer was aware of a specific sealing problem on the Boeing 747 aircraft, and had developed a unique design to solve that problem. The success of the design was based on two major innovations: first, a new, proprietary silicone/fiberglass composite material and second, a patented seal design. By 1980 RCF seals were to be found on most major air carriers and had developed a reputation for good quality and for engineering problem-solving.RCF’s name was changed in 1997 to RCF Technologies, Inc to reflect the change in the types of parts we supply. Our niche now includes most high temperature applications (bleed air, APU, anti-icing, etc). Light weight metal couplings, clamps, isolation mounts flexible connectors and sealant tapes have also been added. Insulation and electrically conductive parts are the latest developments in our arsenal of parts.As of 2009, RCF began marketing to the high-performance racing industry. The problems of heat, weight and performance apply much as they do to aerospace, and our reception into this market has been rapid and exciting. As always, RCF is dedicated to maintaining its unique position in industry through on-going development of state-of-the-art materials and products.
