We manufacture gaskets in a wide range of materials from EPDM for water applications to Gylon® for the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. Our manufacturing capabilities are extensive in our 11,000 square foot factory. We have 10 presses available ranging from 20 to 80 tonnes, and with over 15,000 cutting formes to choose from, many standard sizes and styles are available without incurring additional tooling costs. (We have practically all standard table cutters and a massive range of “True Bores”)
Working together with you to find the most suitable solution from our wide range of materials means you will get the correct material for the application. Sometimes cost is the overriding concern, but more often than not it’s the longevity of the seal. Fortunately, with over 45 years manufacturing experience, we are able to offer the most practical solution to your gasketing requirement.
We are able to offer expert advice on pressures, temperatures and media compatibility, and with our in-house moulding shop we are able to produce sheet for converting or finished gaskets in our massive polymer range including coloured FDA and EC1935 compliant grades, petrol and diesel resistant grades and specialist materials including metal detectable, conductive and anti-static grades. See our compounds page for details of our range of polymers.
In addition to traditional “flat” gaskets we also supply a complete range of eyelet and envelope gaskets for more aggressive environments.
For bespoke designs we now utilise 2 axis CNC cutters. These enable us to produce complex designs in a variety of materials without the need for sometimes expensive tooling, plus with the cut being done with a knife there are no laser scorch marks. You can e-mail your designs to us or we can input them directly from your drawings.
For thicker gauges we can cut using a 55000 psi water jet cutter. This allows us to cut up to 100mm without edge deformation, plus with the jet being only 1mm diameter there is very little wastage between cuts.
For large gaskets (Bigger than either roll or sheet size) we can supply them in pieces with dovetail joints pre-cut.
We offer gaskets in our full range of materials including:
- Rubber gaskets & Sponge – For low pressure applications
- Non-Asbestos Gaskets – For steam, water, oil, fuel, gas & general use
- Metallic/Semi-Metallic Gaskets – High & super high temperature for demanding conditions
- PTFE Gaskets – For food, pharmaceutical and hazardous chemical services
- Plastic – Commonly used for Shims
- High Temperature – We supply several high temperature materials for a variety of uses, including graphite and mica based sheeting
- Paper Gaskets – Low cost for automotive applications
