Gasket Paper

Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd work with worldwide suppliers, sourcing the highest quality materials for use in various sealing, insulating and gasketing applications. 

One such material is fibre jointing gasket paper, sometimes also called gasket paper, which is manufactured in thicknesses from 0.15mm up to 6.4mm in continuous rolls in various lengths which depend upon thickness. 

As we carry out all our conversion on-site, we can manufacture or cut these down to bespoke widths and lengths, into sheets from 1m x 1m or even into a variety of usable products such as pads, gaskets, washers and strips, all of which are made to order using a selection of log cutters, strippers and presses.

Our on-site laminating service also allows us to supply gasket paper coated with a range of self-adhesives, foils and even laminated to other materials.

What is Fibre Jointing Gasket Paper?

Gasket paper is a cellulose fibre base, which is impregnated with a plasticised (usually gelatine) chemical treatment that is resistant to oil, petrol, air, water, alcohol, grease and most solvents.

    Why use Fibre Jointing Gasket Paper?

    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 it 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 Fibre Jointing Gasket Paper

    Using Gasket Paper offers a number of advantages, not only is it a cheaper alternative to some 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 seal or 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.
