V-Spring Seal Extrusion in Cord Form?

V-Spring Seal Extrusion in Cord Form?

V-Spring Seal Extrusion in Cord Form?

I hope I'm in the right place here. I need to make a V-spring seal assembly that is not round but is more rectangular or oval somewhat saddle like shape in plan view. It is an internal pressure Static face seal. Obviously, this could be created by molding the elastomer but would be hugely expensive for prototyping purposes.

Question: Have any forum members heard of any company making extruded V-Spring cord stock for industry standard VS-100 or VS-200 V-spring cross section?

Material needs to withstand 200c or more and obviously fairly flexible.

I have straight lengths of industry standard stainless V-Spring in 100 and 200 size and it appears it will bend to the radii required with minimal permanent deformation. I believe I will be able to form the parts to the seal slot. I have the skills to cut and glue accurately.

Attached image shows the unusual shape. Overall seal size is 65mm long x 35mm wide. Top view is assembly and bottom view is a cutaway with parts separated.

Thank you in advance for any help or advise you can give.

Best to all,
