A Metal Gasket

Metal Gaskets

Metal gaskets is a term often used to describe any size of gasket, shim or washer that is manufactured from elemental metals or alloys such as steel, brass or titanium. Specialist metal alloys such as Inconel, which is composed of nickel, chromium and iron, have properties suited to processes that undergo extreme pressures or temperatures.

We precision engineer a wide range metal gasket for commonplace and critical applications.

Heat Exchanger Gaskets

Heat Exchanger Gaskets

Heat exchanger gaskets and small spinner gaskets can be fabricated in simple rings or more complicated crossbar designs and configurations.

Camprofile Gaskets

Camprofile Gaskets

Composed of a grooved metal core and a graphite or composite sealing layer, camprofile gaskets are supplied in standard and nonstandard dimensions.

Classic Car Gasket

Classic Car Gasket

We have a wealth of experience re-templating and manufacturing classic car gaskets from drawings or the physical component. .

Classic Car

Spiral Wound Gaskets

Spiral Wound Gaskets

Comprising preformed rings of chevron shaped layers of metal and filler material, spiral wound gaskets are often used in higher pressure applications. Find out more.

Spiral Wound Gaskets

Metal Shim washers

Metal Shim washers

Metal shims and support washers are commonly used to fill spaces or take up play in mechanical applications. We produce standard and bespoke shims.

Ring Joint Gaskets

Ring Joint Gaskets

Standard and bespoke ring joint gaskets are precision manufactured to national and international standards using materials such as carbon and stainless steel.

Metal O Ring Gaskets

Metal O Ring Gaskets

Metal O Rings are used in high temperature and pressure mechanical applications. The combination of metal tubing and high-temperature alloys offers good ‘springback’ properties.

Metal Taylor Ring Gaskets

Metal Taylor Ring Gaskets

Often used as a seal for steam and hot valves, taylor ring gaskets are cut from a variety of sheet metals and formed into corrugated concentric rings.

The Manufacture of Metal Gaskets 

We manufacture a comprehensive standard range of metal and metal-jacketed gaskets or can precision form components based on custom dimensions. Metal gaskets have applications across a multitude of mechanical and production processes

Clients utilise our full turnkey gasket manufacturing service for help with materials specification, along with CAD gasket design, prototyping, manufacture and worldwide distribution. All gaskets are supplied to recognised national and international standards

Gasket Manufacturing Profiles

  • Shim and solid with precision mating surfaces
  • Profiled with surface grooves
  • Corrugated sheet metal
  • Chevron shaped wound layers
