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.
Rubber gaskets, such as those manufactured from Neoprene and Hypalon, are resistant to weather and abrasion and are often used in processes involving chemicals or oils.
We manufacture a wide variety of EPDM gaskets, with their impermeable composition offering excellent resistance to weather, ageing, abrasion and water.
Due to their resistance to weathering and environmental factors, closed-cell sponge gaskets are commonly used in marine environments that place importance on water exclusion or retention.
Favoured for their excellent resistance to high temperatures, these robust gaskets can be used for a wide range of applications in the marine industry.
These modern fibre gaskets are able to withstand a range of oils, fuels, hydrocarbons and chemicals and have been designed for application in a multitude of high-temperature processes.
Our highly experienced technicians can advise you on the best sheet materials and manufacturing processes for a wide range of gasket applications.
