Specialist Materials

Specialist Materials Sheet

Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd specialise in non-metallic materials, offering a massive choice of materials from the popular sponge, rubber and plastics, right through to specialist sheet materials for use within many industries.   Each material type is manufactured in various sheet or roll sizes as standard, however as we carry out all our conversion on-site, we can cut these down to smaller sheets in a size of your choice, or supply the material in roll form for customers to cut down their own sheets as and when they’re required. Many of the specialist material sheets produced by ASG  can be supplied either plain or laminated with one of our many self-adhesives, foils or with other materials to create composite sheets.


What are Specialist Material Sheets?

Most of the materials we offer can be supplied in sheet form, often taken as they give the customer or end-user the flexibility to be able to cut their own products such as pads or gaskets as and when they are required. Whether it’s for sealing against harmful chemicals or to fill a gap avoiding the ingress of dust, we have a range of material types to choose from.


Material Types 

Other materials we stock and supply as sheets include a number of specialist types, some of these are:

Leather is a material historically used as a sealing or gasket material. It is flexible, resilient and can withstand high levels of manipulation making it suitable for hydraulic gaskets, pipeline and air pump seals, etc. When prepared correctly, leather can be resistant to water, oil, salts, grease and detergents.

Post Office Sponge (orange open cell sponge) sheets are resistant to ozone, oils, acids and alkaline. This open cell sponge is designed to be absorbent and often used in packaging, labelling or other wet applications.

Abrasion Resistant Polyurethane sheets are one of the toughest and wear/abrasion-resistant materials on offer. This material has excellent electrical insulation properties, and resistance to high impact, weather, oil and petrol.


Benefits of Using Specialist Materials Sheets

Advanced Seals and Gaskets Ltd offer a massive range of material choice from which we can convert and supply as sheets, from popular foams and sponges to more odd-ball and specialist materials. Specialist materials can be used for a range of applications with varying levels of strength and resistance requirements. Where it’s a simple gasket to create an air-tight seal between pipes through to heavy machinery anti-vibration pads exposed to chemicals, vibration, extreme heat and high impact – we have a material to suit. If you are unable to find the material you require or can’t decide which is best for you – give our friendly sales team a call who will be able to discuss your application needs further.
