Gasket Paper Gaskets
ASG offers a wide range of non-metallic gaskets, thanks to a broad network of suppliers and material manufacturers, some of which are specialist materials needed for very specific applications. One such range of products on offer from our vast catalogue are Fibre Jointing materials, which includes Gasket Paper.
Fibre jointing gasket paper is sometimes also called gasket paper, which is manufactured in thicknesses from 0.15mm up to 6.4mm in continuous rolls of various lengths which vary between thicknesses, from which gaskets can be cut.
The quality of the cut and finish of the gasket is just as important as the material used, therefore we ensure our in-house manufacturing team follow our customer's drawings or samples to create an exact match - whether it’s a simple square picture frame gasket or a more complex shape with cut-outs - we can offer a solution.
From a one-off sample to a multi-thousand run, we have a machine to quickly and accurately produce perfectly formed gaskets in a range of sizes, these include a number of presses and CNC machines.
What are Gasket Paper Gaskets?
Gaskets are used for sealing and insulating in many industries, these include Gasket paper gaskets a cellulose fibre base, impregnated with a plasticised (usual gelatine) chemical treatment that is resistant to oil, petrol, air, water, alcohol, grease and most solvents. Gaskets cut from gasket paper can take the form of a strip or pad, but are generally an intricately cut shaped piece or ring of material placed within electrical applications.

Why use Fibre Jointing Gasket Paper Gaskets?
Gasket Paper is an inexpensive gasketing material that can be used in many applications where the two mating surfaces are flat and good overall face compression can be achieved.
The compound used in the production of gasket paper makes it resistant to many liquids including oil, petrol, alcohol, grease, water and some solvent, which makes gaskets cut from this material perfect for use within the transport and automotive industries as seals or gaskets for fuels and oil pumps, oil pumps, thermostats and oil filters.
Benefits of using Fibre Jointing Gasket Paper
- Resistant to water, oil, air, petrol and grease
- Available in a range of thickness and roll lengths
- Easy to convert
- Can be supplied with a self-adhesive
- Excellent sealing capabilities
Advantages of using Gasket Paper Gaskets
Using Gasket Paper offers a number of advantages, not only is it a cheaper alternative to some gasketing materials, but it is also resistant to many fluids, oils and air making it a perfect sealing material for use within the automotive industry and within pipework and some machinery.
Gasket Paper is often the preferred material for automotive gasket production for parts that are no longer available.
Gasket Paper is available in a range of thicknesses and roll sizes, all of which can be further cut down and converted into finished products, complete with a self-adhesive backing where required.
Fibre Jointing Gasket Paper Alternatives
There are many non-metallic materials that can be used in gasket manufacturing, each with its own unique advantages and properties for use in different applications and environments, some of the popular ones include:
Natural rubber is water-resistant and offers great shock and vibration resistance properties. This material however is not recommended for use with fuels, oils or solvents.
Silicone rubber is weather resistance, flexible and offers electrical insulating properties and performs well at extreme temperatures.
Neoprene rubber has moderate resistance to UV, Ozone, weathering as well as grease fats and oils.
Neoprene sponge can be used for sealing against dust and water and is resistant to fuel, oil and other chemicals. Neoprene sponge offers a number of insulation properties as well as meeting UL94HF-1 fire ratings.
Cork is oil and solvent resistant, which is flexible and compressible. Its impermeable, buoyant and flame retardant, the idea for oil sealing gaskets.
Compressed non-asbestos was developed as a replacement for the more dangerous material asbestos. It’s a strong material offering resistance to heat (including steam), water, gas, oil, fuels and many chemicals.
