Ceramic Fibre Gaskets
Sourcing the highest quality materials for use in specialist sealing, insulating and gasketing applications is what Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd do best. One such material is Ceramic Fibre Jointing Paper, also called Ceramic Fibre Paper.
Ceramic Fibre Jointing Paper is manufactured in thicknesses between 1mm and 8mm, widths of up to 1260mm and various roll lengths of 40meters to 330 meters depending on thickness from which ceramic fibre jointing paper gaskets can be cut. Our gaskets are converted on-site using drawings or samples provided by our customers, from a simple picture frame gasket, to more complex shapes with cut-outs, notches or bolt-holes.
Whether it’s a one off sample or a multi-thousand batch run, we have a machine designed to quickly and accurately produce perfectly formed gaskets everytime, which include a selection of presses and kiss cut machines.
Our ceramic fibre gaskets are available in a range of standard manufactured thicknesses starting at just 1mm, which can then be laminated to other materials or coated with a self-adhesive or foil backing prior to the gaskets being cut.

What Are Ceramic Fibre Jointing Paper Gaskets?
Ceramic Fibre Jointing Paper is manufactured using a combination of paper making techniques, ceramic fibre (alumina silicate) and organic binders. The binders are carefully selected to ensure they do not release unpleasant odours or toxins when they burn during application. The process of manufacturing this material ensures an accurate thickness and uniform structure is formed to ensure the reliability of the product when used as a gasket.
Ceramic Fibre Jointing Paper gaskets sometimes take the form of a strip or pad, but are generally an intricately cut shaped piece of material which is placed between two surfaces to create a low pressure seal preventing the leakage of liquids or gas and to seal against the intrusion of dust and debris.
Why Use Ceramic Fibre Jointing Paper Gaskets?
Ceramic fibre paper is an extremely flexible, lightweight material which has a uniform fibre structure offering resistance to thermal shock, fire and provides exceptional tensile and dielectric strength.
When these gaskets are used near naked flames, once ignited, the binding agents used will burn out, leaving the fibres behind which act as a thermal barrier at temperatures up to +1260°C. Ceramic fibre jointing paper gaskets can be used as a replacement for asbestos (the original toxic type) such as for boiler or pipework insulation in very high temperature environments.
Benefits Of Using Ceramic Fibre Jointing Paper
- Works in temperatures up to +1260°C.
- Flexible and lightweight.
- Insulates against thermal shock and vibration
- Easy to cut.
- Asbestos free
- Some chemical resistance
- Low thermal conductivity
Advantages Of Using Ceramic Fibre Jointing Paper Gaskets
Using Ceramic Fibre Jointing Paper as a gasketing material offers a number of advantages, mainly its ability to perform in temperatures up to +1260°C, therefore suitable for used in applications where there are extreme high temperatures, open flames or sparks.
Ceramic Fibre Jointing Paper gaskets can be used as electrical or high pressure insulation, refractory or hot top linings, heatshiedling (crucial in the automotive and aerospace industries), as shielding or high temperature gaskets.. Ceramic Fibre Paper is manufactured in a range of roll lengths and thicknesses, making it suitable for large and small ceramic fibre jointing paper gasket conversion.
Where Can Ceramic Fibre Jointing Paper Be Used?
- Wrap around pipework
- High Temperature gasket applications
- Seals in ovens, kilns, furnaces and boilers
- Fire protection
- Automotive heat shielding and silencer insulations
- Molten metal transfer systems
- Expansion joints
