Abstract

A drum seal is provided that will seal tight, yet not scratch a film coating. Aluminum extruded primary part 10 is mechanically clad thickness of 0.003''. This sheet is crimped over on itself at edges 12 without cracking. The sheet is located against the ledges 13 of part 10 so as to be retained symmetrically about extrusion 10 without a mechanical bond. This also allows the edges to flex and seal against opening 14.
