Neoprene Rubber Gasket
Neoprene (polychloroprene) is a synthetic rubber polymer with useful properties, retaining flexibility over a wide range of temperatures. These properties coupled with a resistance to degradation make neoprene a perfect choice for many gasket instances.
We can manufacture your gasket from our general purpose neoprene or our range of specification neoprene to British Standard BS2752-C40, BS2752-C50, BS2752-C60 and BS2752-C70.
We are able to produce your neoprene gasket in small or large volumes, please contact us for advice and more information.
Nitrile (NBR) Rubber Gasket
Nitrile (NBR) rubber offers resistance to oil and fuel, and other chemicals. As a rule, more nitrile within the polymer gives higher resistance but less flexibility with the final product. We offer a range of Nitrile rubber grades suitable for most projects including specification BS2751 BA40, BS2751 BA50, BS2751 BA60 and BS2751 BA70.
Nitrile is retains its integrity over a range of temperatures from -40°C to +108°C making it ideal for automotive and aeronautical applications.
Specification Natural Rubber and general purpose / natural /SBR rubber Gasket
Our specification BS1154 natural rubber, natural shotblast rubber and abrasive grade high quality Natural rubber has excellent resilience, tear and abrasion resistance, and high tensile strength. In addition, natural rubber is resistant to water and mild chemicals, with a high electrical resistance. We also manufacture gaskets using general purpose natural rubber if specified.
We can manufacture your gasket from a seletion of specification natural rubber; BS1154-Z40, BS1154-Z50, BS1154-Z60, BS1154-Y40, BS1154-Y50 or BS1154-Y60.
Natural rubber is suitable for general purpose gasket instances where water resistance is required, or in mechanical environments.
Viton® / Fluorocarbon Rubber Gasket
Black premium genuine Viton® (FKM) has outstanding resistance to chemical attack by oxidation, acids, oils, fuel and petro-chemicals, hot water & steam at temperatures not achievable with other compounds. Highly resistant to atmospheric aging.
This makes Viton® an excellent choice where gasket performance limits must be of a high standard.
Silicone / Fluorosilicone Rubber Gasket
Our colour range has been tested to and is in accordance with the American Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) 21 CFR 177-2600, BFR XV Empfehlung and colour bleed test according to BFR Empfehlung part B 11 and Directive EC 1935/2004.
