What are Rubber Gaskets?
A rubber gasket is a type of mechanical seal that is used to prevent leaks between distinct substrate sections.
As an expert gasket supplier, rubber gaskets and shims are one of our core products, as we stock all gasket sheet materials and have the facility to manufacture custom parts as well as standard patterns, such as ANSI/ASME and the Euoropean DIN pipe flanges.
How are Rubber Gaskets Made?
As a gasket manufacturer, we carry gasket sheet materials in stock, ready to cut or punch gaskets either using hydraulic cutting presses or by hand fabrication. As we have a wide range of standard cutters, for items such as washers or pipe flange gaskets to BS EN 12560, we can provide most standard parts on a quick lead time.
What are Rubber Gaskets Used For?
We can supply rubber gaskets to order or to a schedule if required, and can make up kits of parts for spares. We also manufacture bespoke rule forme cutters for standard and custom gaskets of special dimensions for which we don’t already have a cutter, and are able to manufacture or source special materials for specific applications. We can fabricate extremely large gaskets for products such as tank seals, bunker lids, glazing seals, containers and enclosures, and have been doing so for a range of customers for many years.
Gasket Sheet Materials
Manufacturing, stockholding and fabrication facilities enable us to supply both bespoke and standard rubber gaskets, whilst maintaining sufficient capacity and expertise to offer very short lead times where the customer requires exceptional service.
Rubber gaskets and shims are available in all the common polymers, in a range of gasket sheet materials, from very soft foam to rigid engineering plastics, in self-adhesive o r plain finishes, and with specialist grades which provide properties such as high wear, high temperature or extreme weather resistance.
We stock a full range of materials which can be converted into finished parts very rapidly. These include:
- EMI/RFI shielded
- Paper materials
In conjunction with our rubber moulding facilities, we can also manufacture special sheeting grades to provide a bespoke material solution for custom gaskets, should it be required.
Our rubber gaskets are the ideal solution for a range of applications. If you would like to discuss your requirements in further detail, our technical staff is at hand and can help find the right solution to meet your needs.
