A Classic Car Gasket

Automotive Gaskets & Seals

Gaskets and seals are a key component of cars, motorcycles and quad bikes to help prevent oils, coolants, and other lubricants from entering the engine and compromising the vehicle’s performance. They are used throughout the engine’s mechanics, such as on the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valves to help reduce harmful nitrogen oxide emissions and to prevent leakage from the camshaft and rocker covers.

Over the last 50 years, we have manufactured large runs of automotive gaskets for some of the world’s most recognisable vehicle manufacturers. From our factory in West Yorkshire, our skilled team use a wide range of metal, graphite, rubber, cork, nitrile, non-asbestos and composite sheet materials to mass-produce gaskets and seals for a wide range of vehicle makes and models.

Used to seal the camshaft, these O-Ring gaskets are typically smaller than manifold and cylinder head gaskets. Some automotive engines feature one camshaft, whereas others require several camshaft gaskets.

Metal Gaskets

Rocker Cover Gaskets

An essential seal to prevent oil leakage between the rocker cover and engine, these gaskets can be manufactured from a range of cork, nitrile and non-asbestos materials.

Cork Gaskets

Non Asbestos Gaskets

EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) Valve Gaskets

EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) Valve Gaskets

Manufactured from flexible graphite or composite materials, EGR and automotive valve gaskets have excellent resistance to high temperatures, oils and fuels.
