Leatheroid Electrical Insulation

Leatheroid Electrical Insulation

Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd manufacture a diverse range of Leatheroid paper products.

Leatheroid paper, also known as Elephantide, is grey/blue in color and is manufactured in continuous rolls, offering a wide range of thicknesses from 0.1mm to 1mm. This material possesses excellent insulation properties and finds extensive use in the electrical industry for insulating hot elements like contact terminals.

Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd has the capability to manufacture a diverse range of products from Leatheroid paper, including sheets, rolls, gaskets, washers, pads, and strips. All of these products can be produced in either plain form or with self-adhesive backing, featuring a peel-able liner on one or both sides.


When supplied bonded, Elephantide exhibits significantly increased bursting strength and enhanced electrical strength, reaching approximately 12kv per millimeter. This characteristic makes it well-suited for industrial and domestic electrical appliances, and it is often employed as an insulator in transformers and motors.
