O Ring Colour Identification

O rings come in various colours, and it's important to understand what these colours indicate as the o rings you choose will affect your overall process application.  Ultimately, different o ring colours are used to help differentiate between different materials. ...

Spiral Wound Gasket Compressibility and Pressure Ratings

In order to form a reliable seal, spiral wound gaskets do require a certain degree of pressure.   The applied pressure allows the gasket to be compressed tightly between the mating surfaces preventing any leaks from occurring.  Factors such as operating temperature...

Elastomeric Compounds

What is elastomer?  Elastomeric compounds are rubber seals produced using natural rubbers or manufactured by the chemicals industry.  Elastomeric sealing compounds consist of between 50-60% rubber; the remainder of the compound consists of fillers,...

Is there such a thing as the right flange gasket?

We cannot stress enough how important gaskets and seals can be. Gaskets are vital for an application's reliability and integrity, and trust us when we say, choosing the right gasket now can help you avoid costly issues in the future.  Taking a closer look at pipe...

Plastic gaskets, the best alternative to metal

Plastic gaskets and seals are not that uncommon.  In fact, they’re used in many devices due to the longevity and functionality they offer.  Helping to prevent leaks and maintain temperature control, plastic gaskets help equipment and appliances operate to the best of...

Protecting your seals

Dust gets everywhere.  We see it across the surfaces of our homes and even in our workplaces, especially when the light shines through to show it in its full glory!  However, dust that seeps and builds up within engineering equipment can be disastrous.  Causing damage...

Importance of durometer testing

Durometer or shore durometer is a way for industry professionals to measure how hard such things as plastic, rubber, and non-metallic materials genuinely are.  Its focus is to measure on a Shore A or Shore D scale, looking at how robust material is when examining its...

Metal Detectable O Rings

Metal detectable o rings became a necessary must when it was identified that some chemicals, exposure to extreme temperatures, and continuous vibrations could cause failings in standard o rings.  Failings that not only mean a breaking of the seal, but there is also an...

Tips for best o ring maintenance

If o rings are not maintained, leaks can occur, and water and other fluids can enter the appliance or application, and even product in the mix!  If this happens, damage can occur to internal parts and mechanisms, causing deployment failings, potential false readings,...

What you need to know about O Ring Lubricants

Silicone grease and lubricants aren’t just a nice to have for o rings, but they can quite often be a must-have.  However, with so many greases and lubricants to choose from, it can often be a minefield choosing the best ones and the right ones for your o ring and...

A Wide Range of Products Manufactured in the UK

Our products do so much more than create an air- or water-tight seal. Take our spiral wound gaskets as an example. These combine a solid metal ring with a non-metal component (often graphite), which wind and seal together with spring-like tension.

They’re capable of maintaining a seal at both high and low temperatures – and they can be designed to deliver across a wide range of pressures. This is just one example of how intricately designed our seals are. From PTFE sheeting to Kammprofile seals, metal-clad to non-metallic – there’s a gasket or seal in our product range to suit every need and application.

We serve the world’s leading high-tech sectors throughout a wide range of industry

From aerospace engineering to offshore oil rigs our sealing products are used in some of the most demanding industries in the world.

We manufacture seals and metallic gaskets that are put to use in some of modern science’s most demanding fields. Our industry experience is second to none, and you’ll find our gaskets and joints at work in any and all of these advanced sectors:

  • Aerospace and defence projects
  • Oil and gas refineries
  • Petrochemical plants
  • Breweries

But you don’t have to represent a high-tech sector to benefit from our products. We also design and manufacture seals that are put to work in a wide range of more typical pump-and-valve setups. Our high-calibre gaskets are so affordable, that there’s simply no reason to settle for anything less than perfect.
