Nitrile Bonded Cork
Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd offer nitrile bonded cork in a range of products from sheets to cut parts. Nitrile bonded cork is manufactured in sheet or roll form in a range of standard thicknesses, which can then later be cut down to sheets usually at 1mtr x 1mtr or 2mtr x 1mtr. Our state of the art in-house conversion facilities gives us the ability to further convert the nitrile cork rolls and sheets into usable products such as pads, gaskets, washers and strips made to order using a selection of presses and saws.
Our onsite laminating service not only allows us to laminate layers of cork but also enables us to supply nitrile bonded cork with a range of self-adhesives, foils and even layers of other material. Parts produced using nitrile bonded cork can be used for sealing against dust, air and moisture, gap-filling between uneven surfaces or for reducing unwanted noise and vibration They are also preferred in applications where there is exposure to chemicals, oil, fuels and hydrocarbons.
What is Nitrile Bonded Cork?
Nitrile bonded cork is made from cork and nitrile rubber granules which are bonded together, creating a brown coloured material with black pigments resulting in a speckled appearance. The nitrile adds properties to the cork such as resistance to oil, fuel, hydrocarbons and water, with a durable and flexible physicality.
This material itself is manufactured in roll form or sheet form which gives customers the freedom to cut their own sheets, gaskets, pads, strips etc. in various sizes as and when they are required. Nitrile cork products can be manufactured with a choice of finishes including foils, self-adhesives or laminated with other materials to create composite sheets which add further properties.

Why use Nitrile Bonded Cork?
Nitrile bonded cork can be found utilized within many industries, usually where products including gaskets, pads and strips have been cut from them. Nitrile bonded cork material has a range of properties including anti-vibration, weathering, water, oil and solvent resistance. It is flexible and a relatively cheap material choice which is also good for use with fuel and will seal at temperatures up to 120°C.
As our nitrile cork is converted in house, we have the capabilities to cut them into the exact dimensions requested, finished with a choice of adhesives or foils and laminate them to any of the other materials in our catalogue, combining properties and creating a unique and robust product. Our Nitrile bonded cork is popular within the automotive, engineering, construction, industrial and manufacturing industries.
The Advantages of Using Nitrile Bonded Cork
Nitrile bonded cork is popular within various industries including automotive, construction, manufacturing to mention a few, thanks to its range of desirable properties. Nitrile bonded cork is used where the material is required to be resistant to the effect of the ozone, oils, fuels and heat or where it is to be used for surface protection, sealing, spacing and sound/vibration absorption within heavy machinery and mechanical components.
Nitrile bonded cork can also be found in sumps, valve covers, electrical transformers, electrical switch gears and to seal general covers and lids. Nitrile cork is manufactured in rolls and sheets which gives customers and end-users the flexibility to be able to cut their products (strips, gaskets, washers, pads, etc) as and when they are required.
Benefits of Nitrile Bonded Cork
- Sound Suppression
- Thermal Properties
- Bonded with Other Materials Based on Application
- Fuel & oil resistant
- Natural Material
Other Grades of Cork Available
Cork products can be produced in various other grades, such as natural cork or bonded with other materials other than nitriles such as neoprene and synthetic rubber.
Neoprene bonded cork is suited to sealing at higher temperatures and resistant to weathering and oil. Neoprene Bonded cork is suited to oil, engineering, electrical, anti-vibration and soundproofing applications.
There are many synthetic rubbers that can be bonded to the cork that enhance the properties of the cork, creating Synthetic Bonded cork. This allows the cork to be used in a wide array of water-retaining applications or where resilience to certain acids is required.
Natural cork is relatively cheap compared to sponge and rubber often used as air/dust/water seals and in thermal insulation, acoustic and anti-vibration applications.
