What is Gasket Paper?
Gasket paper is basically sheeting that is used in the making of gaskets. The sheeting is purchased in various sizes and thicknesses. The gaskets are then cut out of the sheet. Gasket paper can be made from a variety of robust materials including nitrile, silicone rubber and cork. The new gasket will then form a leak-proof seal when fitted to pipework or machinery.
In addition to the durability and flexibility of the material, it will often have an additional property that makes them ideal for certain uses. For example, it could highly resistant to high pressure or temperatures. Other materials can be oil-resistant or provide electrical insulation.
Cost-effective Gasket Material
Gasket paper is cost-effective for companies to purchase, allowing them to produce gaskets from it in large numbers both quickly and efficiently. This is especially useful if their current gaskets degrade or fail often due to the operating conditions they are put under.
Flexoid Gasket Paper
At TYM, we stock the popular Flexoid Gasket Paper which is both cost-effective and highly resistant against oil, petrol and water. This makes it very much in demand from automotive manufacturers both at home and abroad. However, due to its lack of resistance to heat and chemicals, it is not a good choice for industrial use. This type of gasket paper can be used in many parts of a car, including fuels pumps, oil pumps, carburetors, thermostats and oil filters.
We sell Flexoid Gasket paper in a range of thicknesses, from 0.15mm up to 1.50mm. The gasket paper is available in lengths of 5 metres and 10 metres. They are also sold in A4 formats.
