Neoprene Cork Sheet

Neoprene Cork Sheet

Neoprene Cork Sheet

Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd stocks neoprene cork material, which we can convert into various products, including gaskets, pads, strips, and sheets. We offer plain or self-adhesive finishes. Typically, neoprene cork comes in standard thicknesses and 1-meter wide x 10 meters long rolls, though roll sizes can vary based on thickness.

Since all conversion work is done in-house, we can cut these rolls into 1-meter x 1-meter or 2-meter x 1-meter sheets. Non-standard sheets or pads are available upon request. Many of our cork sheets can be supplied plain or laminated with self-adhesives, foils, or other materials. Our stocked cork materials allow for shorter lead times and quicker production of cut parts.

What are Neoprene Bonded Cork Sheets?

Neoprene bonded cork combines neoprene rubber and natural cork granules, forming a flexible material with unique characteristics. This speckled material is suitable for higher temperatures and watertight seals.

Cork is typically produced in continuous rolls of specific lengths based on thickness. These rolls can be cut into sheets from which pads, strips, and gaskets are made.

    Why use Neoprene Cork Sheet?

    Neoprene cork sheets provide flexibility for end-users to create custom strips, pads, and gaskets. These sheets are popular due to their lightweight, high-pressure resistance, and tear-resistant properties. They offer a cost-effective alternative to sponge and rubber materials, with good oil resistance and the ability to seal at temperatures up to 120°C, making them ideal for outdoor water sealing applications. Neoprene cork also excels in thermal, sound, and vibration insulation, making it a common choice in the automotive industry and under heavy machinery to reduce noise and vibration levels.

    Advantages of Using Neoprene Cork Sheet

    Neoprene cork sheets possess numerous advantages and exceptional properties suitable for various industries. They feature a broad working temperature range and resistance to oil, weathering, friction, and abrasion. Additionally, they excel in sound and vibration control, making them valuable for producing gaskets, strips, or washers.

    These versatile materials fill irregularities between surfaces, bridge gaps, create effective seals against water, gas, and air, and provide smooth, even surfaces for fastenings, ensuring a precise fit. Neoprene cork rolls are readily available in our stock material range, enabling us to manufacture cork products in customized sizes and quantities, with a choice of finishes.

    Different Grades Neoprene Cork Sheet

    Along with Neoprene Bonded, there are other different grades of cork sheet available for use within many industries each with its own unique characteristics, depending upon the material it is blended.  Grades of cork include Natural, Resin Bonded, Nitrile Bonded and Synthetic Bonded

    Natural Cork – consists of grains of cork with no other added chemicals other than a liquid binder known as ‘agglomeration’ to adhere the particles together.  Natural Cork is relatively cheap compared to sponge and rubber and can be used as a simple coaster, air/dust/water seals, in thermal insulation, acoustic and anti-vibration applications.

    Resin-bonded cork – this is a lightweight, flexible cork, produced using cork granules bound together using a synthetic resin.  This grade of cork is resilient to certain acids and is often used in water retaining applications.

    Nitrile bonded cork – this material is still manufactured using a combination of cork and nitrile rubber granules, giving a speckled appearance. Gaskets made from this material can be used where oil and fuel resistance is required, or where high-temperature resistance is required, industries include automotive and general engineering.
