Gasket Paper

Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd collaborates with global suppliers, diligently selecting top-quality materials for diverse sealing, insulation, and gasketing applications.

One of these materials is fiber jointing gasket paper, also known as gasket paper, which is manufactured in thicknesses ranging from 0.15mm to 6.4mm. These sheets come in continuous rolls, with lengths varying according to thickness.

Since all conversion work is carried out in-house, we can tailor these materials to specific widths, lengths, or shapes. We can transform them into sheets measuring 1m x 1m or craft various custom products like pads, gaskets, washers, and strips. To accomplish this, we employ an array of log cutters, strippers, and presses, ensuring each item is made to order.

Furthermore, our on-site laminating capabilities allow us to provide gasket paper coated with a selection of self-adhesives, foils, or laminated to other materials, catering to a wide range of preferences.

What is Fibre Jointing Gasket Paper?

Gasket paper comprises a cellulose fiber base infused with a plasticized (typically gelatin) chemical treatment, rendering it resistant to oil, petrol, air, water, alcohol, grease, and most solvents.

    Why use Fibre Jointing Gasket Paper?

    Gasket Paper is a cost-effective gasket material suitable for flat mating surfaces, ensuring effective face compression. Its compound renders it resistant to various liquids, such as oil, petrol, alcohol, grease, water, and some solvents. This makes it an ideal choice for applications in the transport and automotive industries, where it serves as seals or gaskets for components like fuel and oil pumps, thermostats, and oil filters.

    One of the key advantages of gasket paper is its affordability without compromising on performance. This makes it a popular choice for applications where budget constraints are a concern. It provides a reliable seal between two flat surfaces, preventing the leakage of fluids and gases.

    The compound used in gasket paper production is carefully formulated to offer resistance to a wide range of substances commonly encountered in automotive and industrial environments. This includes resistance to oil and petrol, crucial for ensuring the integrity of engine components.

    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 Fibre Jointing Gasket Paper

    Gasket Paper provides a multitude of advantages, making it a preferred choice in various applications. One notable advantage is its cost-effectiveness, serving as a budget-friendly alternative to many other sealing materials. This affordability makes it an attractive option, particularly when cost constraints are a consideration.

    Another key benefit of Gasket Paper is its resistance to a wide array of fluids, oils, and air. This resistance is a valuable property, making it an excellent sealing material. In the automotive industry, where exposure to various fluids is common, Gasket Paper performs exceptionally well, ensuring reliable sealing in critical components and systems.

    Furthermore, Gasket Paper comes to the rescue when dealing with automotive parts that are no longer available. In such cases, Gasket Paper can be a lifeline, allowing for the creation of custom seals and gaskets tailored to the specific requirements of the unavailable components. This adaptability and versatility are highly advantageous in automotive repair and maintenance.

    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.
