Nitrile Cork Sheet
Advanced Seals & Gaskets offer sheets in a vast range of materials, including Nitrile cork. Nitrile bonded cork is manufactured in roll form in a range of standard thicknesses, which is then cut down to the required sheet size upon request, usually at 1mtr x 1mtr or 2mtr x 1mtr. Our state-of-the-art in-house facilities give us the flexibility to split or laminate nitrile cork sheets enabling us to offer a full range of non-standard thicknesses.
Our onsite laminating service not only allows us to laminate layers of cork but also enables us to supply nitrile cork sheets with a range of self-adhesives, foils, and even layers of other material. Nitrile cork sheets are often taken as they give the customer and end-users the flexibility to be able to cut their own strips/gaskets/washers out as and when they are required.
Parts produced using nitrile cork sheets can be used for sealing against dust, air, and moisture, gap-filling between uneven surfaces, or for reducing unwanted noise and vibration They are also preferred in applications where there is exposure to chemicals, oil, fuels, and hydrocarbons.
What are Nitrile Cork Sheets?
Nitrile cork is made from cork and nitrile rubber granules which are bonded together, creating a brown coloured material with black pigment resulting in a speckled appearance. The nitrile adds properties to the cork such as resistance to oil, fuel, hydrocarbons, and water, with a durable and flexible physicality. This material itself is manufactured in roll form from which sheets can be cut.
Rolls are sometimes preferred by customers as they have the freedom to cut their own sheets in various sizes as and when they are required. Nitrile cork sheets can be manufactured with a choice of finishes including foils, self-adhesive, or laminated with other materials that add further properties.

Here at Advanced Seals & Gaskets, we offer a variety of sheets in an array of sponge, foam, solid, cork, and plastic materials. All of our sheets are cut to the customer's desired length and thickness in-house using specialised machinery and supplied with a choice of finishes each with unique properties suited to individual applications.
Why use Nitrile Cork Sheets
Nitrile cork sheets can be found utilized within many industries, usually where products including gaskets, pads, and strips have been cut from them. Nitrile bonded cork material range of properties including anti-vibration, weathering, water, oil, and solvent resistance. It is flexible and a relatively cheap material choice which is also good for use with fuel and will seal at temperatures up to 120°C.
As our nitrile sheets are converted in-house, we have the capabilities to cut them into the exact dimensions requested, finished with a choice of adhesives or foils, and laminate them to any of the other materials in our catalogue, combining properties and creating a unique and robust product. Our Nitrile bonded cork sheets are popular within the automotive, engineering, construction, industrial, and manufacturing industries.
Cork sheets can be produced in various other grades, such as natural cork, or bonded with other materials other than nitrile such as neoprene and synthetic rubber.
Neoprene bonded cork is suited to sealing at higher temperatures and resistant to weathering and oil. Neoprene Bonded cork is suited to oil, engineering, electrical, anti-vibration, and soundproofing applications.
There are many synthetic rubbers that can be bonded to the cork that enhance the properties of the cork, creating Synthetic Bonded cork. This allows the cork to be used in a wide array of water retaining applications or where resilience to certain acids is required.
Natural cork is relatively cheap compared to sponge and rubber often used as air/dust/water seals and in thermal insulation, acoustic and anti-vibration applications.
Please get in touch with our team for further information on our many grades of bonded cork.

Advantages of Using Acoustic Foam Gaskets
Nitrile bonded cork is popular within various industries including automotive, construction, manufacturing to mention a few, thanks to its range of desirable properties.
Nitrile bonded cork is used where the material is required to be resistant to the effect of the ozone, oils, fuels, and heat or where it is to be used for surface protection, sealing, spacing, and sound/vibration absorption within heavy machinery and mechanical components.
Nitrile bonded cork can also be found in sumps, valve covers, electrical transformers, electrical switch gears and to seal general covers and lids. Nitrile cork sheets are also more desirable to many customer as it gives them and end-users the flexibility to be able to cut their products (strips/gaskets/washers) as and when they are required
