GASKET APPLICATIONS
Gaskets for the Marine Industry

Complying with International Maritime Organisation (IMO) safety guidelines and the ability to withstand extreme weather conditions, water, and corrosion are all key considerations when selecting gaskets for application in the marine industry. 

Marine gaskets can be used for a wide range of internal and external applications, from hatch covers, seals and doors, to internal operating systems and underwater repairs. With work at sea often dangerous due to the volatile environment, reliable seals and the correct application of marine gaskets are of paramount importance.

We have many years’ experience producing gaskets for the marine industry and are on hand to advise you on the correct gaskets for your application. With all gaskets manufactured at our factory in West Yorkshire, our skilled team can also apply a range of bespoke finishes to meet customer requirements, including chamfering and drilling.
