A Rubber Gasket

Rubber Gaskets

We manufacture a comprehensive range of gaskets from rubber and silicone composite materials to suit a multitude of applications. We hold a large stock of commercial and BS specification grade sheet materials or can supply specialist materials at highly competitive prices.

Commercial Rubber Gaskets

Commercial Rubber Gaskets

A general purpose, low cost option with moderate tensile strength and abrasion resistance. commonly used in low specification sealing applications.

Insertion Rubber Gaskets

Insertion Rubber Gaskets

Rubber and styrene-butadiene composite with a fabric reinforcement used in many common sealing applications where water or mild chemicals are a factor.

 EPDM Rubber Gaskets

EPDM Rubber Gaskets

Most commonly found as an exterior sealing solution, EPDM has WRAS approval and provides strong resistance to environmental conditions over its lifespan.

Neoprene Rubber Gaskets

Neoprene Rubber Gaskets

Resistant to weather and abrasion, Neoprene rubber gaskets are also used where mild chemicals or oils are processed.

Butyl Rubber Gaskets

Butyl Rubber Gaskets

The blend of isobutylene and isoprene forms an impermeable seal that is often used in processing gases. It also has excellent thermal and anti-ageing properties.

Hypalon Rubber Gaskets

Hypalon Rubber Gaskets

Hypalon is almost completely ozone and UV resistant with excellent recovery and stability properties when used in harsh environmental conditions.

Silicon Rubber Gaskets

Silicon Rubber Gaskets

Silicon Rubber Gaskets have heat tolerance up to 220°C are often used in food production and has FDA approval.

Viton Rubber Gaskets

Viton Rubber Gaskets

The flouroelastomer compound is resistant to most petrochemicals, hydrocarbons and solvents. It’s commonly used in manufacturing, automotive and petrochemical applications. Up to 220 C

The Manufacture of Rubber Gaskets

All gaskets are precision cut in-house using CNC, waterjet, punch press machinery. We utilise state-of-the-art production techniques and many years’ experience to quickly turnaround large volumes of rubber gaskets while ensuring consistency and accuracy.

We offer clients a full turnkey service, including materials specification, CAD design, manufacture and worldwide distribution. Equally, we can produce single or multiple gaskets from clients’ designs and templates. All gaskets are supplied to recognised national and international standards.

Rubber Selection

The term rubber gasket covers a massive range of materials for applications involving water, chemicals, fuels and oils, to name but a few. For example, EPDM rubber gaskets have excellent water and abrasion resistance, making them ideal for external sealing applications.

Please get in touch if you need help and advice about materials. Our experienced team will be happy to help.

The Manufacturing Proccess Of A Rubber Gasket

Rubber Gasket Materials

The properties of common sheet rubber polymers optimise performance of the materials under specific circumstances of heat, moisture and pressure. Below we have listed some common rubber and rubber polymers as guidance to their characteristics in operation.

RUBBER GASKET APPLICATIONS
Rubber Gasket Applications And Uses

Rubber gaskets are widely found in a multitude of everyday industrial and domestic applications Most common uses for these gaskets include sealing substrates against leakage, environmental  factors, vibration, temperature and pressure. Different rubber polymer material sheets are used to manufacture gaskets that remain stable under extreme cold or extreme heat, or withstand corrosive chemicals without losing integrity and flexibility.
