For many years, we have been the “go-to” source for all types of gaskets and gasket materials. The well-liked NovusTM 5G compressed fibre and Sigma PTFE lines are among the many products we provide.
The NovusTM 5G materials, produced as compressed fibre, and non-asbestos substitutes, combine high specification nitrile rubber binders with a range of natural and synthetic fibres. This leads to a variety of BS7531 compliant materials that are renowned for their superior sealing abilities at a range of pressure levels and high and low temperatures.
Additionally, we provide a variety of Sigma gasket sheet materials made with a PTFE foundation. These materials have a temperature range of -250°C to +250°C and exhibit great dimensional stability and outstanding resistance to practically all chemicals across the PH range. They are especially well suited for chemical conveyance and food contact applications because of this and their FDA clearances.
We can create flange table gaskets, picture frame gaskets, unique forms, washers, and seals out of any Novus or Sigma material thanks to our specialised CNC profile cutting and gasket production equipment.
Please contact us using the details below if you’re unclear about which grade of material is best suited for your application so we can, when possible, provide you with the best advice to aid in your choice.
