Choosing the correct oil seal application

Choosing and using the proper sealing devices within oil and gas applications can be vital when preventing dirt, dust, water, and other debris from potentially getting inside and contaminating products.  Of course, all rubber materials and seals will provide a range...

Nitrile rubber, NBR, and Buna-N – how well do you know your o ring materials?

A widely used elastomer, Nitrile, Buna-N, or NBR rubber, are all oil and fuel resistant and provide a great level of strength, making them a popular material for seals across various industries.  Suitable for a range of applications, this versatile rubber material,...

Optimum squeezing force for an o ring

It is true that the more squeeze you place on an o ring, the tighter the seal it will provide. In essence, the more squeeze (compression) you apply, the greater the force between the o ring and its mating hardware.  And ensuring you have the perfect seal is all...

O Ring Squeeze

The squeeze and shrinkage on an o ring are vital to understanding as these factors stand in the way of your application either experiencing a perfect seal or your application suffering from leaks.  You can measure the shrinkage of an o ring during...

Keeping your o rings bonded

EMI o rings. Those seal ring gaskets are made of silicone compounds, combining environmental sealing with electromagnetic interference protection.  Consisting of metal or metal-coated particles, silicone o rings are filled with silver, silver aluminium, or nickel...

The importance of mechanical seals when reducing water consumption in mining

Environmental considerations are at the top of most industry's agendas in the 21st century as companies evaluate and improve operations, processes, and systems.  Conserving water in mining is one such area that is now being investigated further with the rotation of...

How choosing the correct gasket reduces risks

Health and Safety across any industry are vital, especially so in industrial facilities and settings.  Why?  Because harmful leaks and emissions must be avoided at all costs to avoid serious accidents or injury to your teams and property.  That’s why having the right...

How to tighten your bolts perfectly

How to tighten your bolts and which tools you should use to achieve the perfect seal is not as seamless and straightforward as we would like. Various factors come into play in these situations, such as bolt grade, size, and even application type.  Tightening torques...

Static and Dynamic o rings

A range of factors and application dynamics come into play when choosing a particular type of o ring.  You need to understand the type of seal exert you require, the dimensions, and even compounds.  Due to the nature of an o ring and its overall design, o rings use...

Gasket Sealants

Fortunately, no one gasket suits a range of applications, but rather we have a multitude of gasket sealants available to meet various specifications and requirements.  Ultimately, sealants are used to effectively ensure gasket seals.  Helping to extend a gasket's life...

Mica Gaskets and Sheeting Materials

Mica is a very high temperature (1000⁰C) gasket sheeting material able to withstand such temperatures even in the presence of Oxygen. It can be produced in tape, strip and roll form, suitable for using in the manufacture of Spiral Wound and Kammprofile gaskets and also in braided form for applications requiring a gland compression packing. As a sheeting product there are predominantly three main variants, one as a plain Mica product, one with a flat stainless steel core for extra rigidity and strength, and one having a stainless steel tanged reinforcement for even greater stability and strength, especially when being used on narrow width flanges. These products can be used in a wide range of applications including Diesel engines and exhaust manifolds, turbines and turbochargers, oil pan and heat shield.

This group of materials exhibit low weight loss at high temperatures and provide high integrity seals having been specially developed to be used in the most demanding sealing applications with a temperature range from cryogenic to +1000⁰C using mica, a mineral fibre with exceptional physical and chemical resistance properties. Thanks to their chemical formulation this group of materials are oxidation free and can be used in critical applications where other materials suffer from rapid thermal degradation which then they fail to ensure the required resistance, durability and reliability. 

  • Temperature range from cryogenic to +1000⁰C 
  • API 607 Fire Safe Test 
  • Excellent chemical resistance 
  • For use in corrosive environments 
  • Free from oxidation 
  • Can be used in critical applications where other materials may fail
