Manufacturing of High-Quality Gaskets

Manufacturing of High-Quality GasketsA large number of engineering and machinery applications use gaskets. This mechanical seal is employed whenever gaps between two or more surfaces are joined together. This process is also required to prevent leakage and withstand the extremes of compression when working.

Depending on the requirements of the application, the seals and gaskets used can be manufactured from a variety of materials. Just in a standard washing machine alone, a cork gasket (to suppress noise) and a watertight gasket, are both essential to the finished product.

Seals and gaskets need to be high-quality, and the process must start with the manufacturer. They need to use the latest technology in making gaskets from the best constituents and to the highest specifications.

Materials Used for Manufacturing

Gaskets can be made from any sheet materials such as paper, rubber, silicone, metals, cork, Neoprene®, PTFE, plastic, fibreglass and asbestos. Technology is continuously discovering new ways to manufacture gaskets from better and more innovative materials.

It is not just the correct sizing that is necessary for perfect gasket mating; the material choice is a vital component as well. Gaskets need to be tough yet flexible enough to allow compression.

Gaskets mate two surfaces that will erode or grind against each other by providing a buffer. Because this can mask any surface irregularities, the gasket must also fill them and ensure that no gas or fluids leak, which often occurs under high compression.

A reputable gasket manufacturer will utilise only the highest quality materials to produce the most precisely made products. The gasket market is global. The best way to source a gasket or seal is to build up a relationship with a supplier who understands how critical these well-made products are to an application.

When a gasket manufactured by the punching process is not suitable, one can be precision made using a cutting process. Depending on the material, the specialised gasket will be cut using lasers or high-pressure water jet. For an even more bespoke gasket service, expert technicians will hand cut one according to the application needs. This is a technique often used for vintage cars.

Gasket suppliers, such as Specialist Sealing Products, stock gaskets and seals that are traditionally manufactured in high volumes. They have a wide selection that incorporates the many different materials, sizes and types that is sure to suit diverse engineering projects.

The Use of Gaskets

A gasket’s primary function is to be reliable in its job to join and seal. This is proof that only the best materials and manufacturing processes produce acceptably high-quality gaskets. Gasket suppliers like Specialist Sealing Products understand this and use only manufacturers that they have carefully vetted.

Many new manufacturers have entered the global gasket market. This is good in that it keeps prices realistic and supply plentiful, but the drawback can be that not every country sets such high standards for overseeing the manufacturing process. Rely on your reputable gasket and seal supplier to know the best products for you.
