Custom Rubber Gaskets

Custom Rubber Gaskets

Butser Rubber are specialist ‘custom rubber gasket’ manufacturers and suppliers.  Dedicated in-house gasket manufacturing capabilities, using an extensive range of Rubbers, Silicones and Sponge materials in commercial, aerospace and defence specification such as DTD, AMS, Def Stan and BS.

Gaskets and Seals can be manufactured using Injection Moulding for 3D designs with custom design features, or traditional ‘cropping’ from rubber sheet for 2D designs.  We can take you gasket project from 1 off and prototyping through to production.

Rubber Gasket Materials

Nitrile Rubber gaskets can be found in a number of different applications. Typically, Nitrile Rubber is suitable for environments which are subject to oil and fuel. Butser Rubber can manufacture Nitrile Rubber gaskets in different shore-hardnesses and colours dependent on the application. Operating temperatures range from -30°C to 100°C.

Nitrile Rubber Gaskets are suitable for applications requiring:

  • Oil Resistance
  • Fuel (Petrol, Diesel and Aviation fuel) resistance
  • Acid resistance
  • Gas resistance
  • Water resistance
  • Low and high temperature resistance

EPDM rubber gaskets are a form of synthetic rubber which provides good all-round performance against a number of environments. Our bespoke EPDM rubber gasket have particularly good weather resistance due to the chemical make-up of our rubber compound material. EPDM gaskets are typically used for Automotive seals and Marine seals due to its excellent weathering resistance. EPDM is not suitable for exposure to fuel and oil.

EPDM rubber gaskets are have the following properties:

  • Acid Resistance
  • Weather Resistance
  • Ageing Resistance
  • UV Resistance
  • Chemical Resistance
  • Keytone Resistance

Neoprene rubber gaskets have a range of suitable applications due to their all-round performance. Neoprene has good abrasion and strength properties which make them suitable for moving components. The operating temperature range of Neoprene gaskets is 30°C to 70°C.

Neoprene is suitable for rubber parts requiring:

  • Abrasion Resistance
  • UV Resistance
  • Weathering Resistance
  • Ageing Resistance
  • Ozone Resistance
  • Acid Resistance
  • Vegetable Fat Resistance

Our bespoke Natural Rubber compound is an exceptional rubber which is well known for its resistance to abrasion and recovery form high pressure forces. Natural rubber can be used as an anti-vibration material for industrial machinery as well as engine components. Natural rubber has poor ozone & weathering resistance and oil & solvent resistance.

Bespoke Lathe Cut Gasket

Precision Lathe Cut Gaskets

Natural rubber has the following properties:

  • High tensile strength
  • Good resilience and abrasion properties
  • Excellent compression set resistance
  • Tensile strength up to 25MPa
  • Operating temperatures between -70°C and 80°C
  • Shore hardness range between 35-90

We have our bespoke cork material manufactured using a Nitrile blend, which provides a highly compressible material which has good fuel and oil resistance. Cork gaskets are suitable for low to medium pressure all purpose gasket applications. Our cork can have the following properties:

  • -20°C to 120°C temperature range
  • Outstanding water tight and air tight sealing properties
  • Good fuel resistance
  • Fire retardant
  • Good oil resistance
  • Extremely durable and hard wearing
  • Excellent insulating qualities due to its thermal and acoustic properties.

Viton® rubber gaskets have excellent resistance to high temperatures, oil, ozone, oxygen and mineral oil. They also provide resistance to acids, fuels and chlorinated hydrocarbons. Viton® gaskets operate extremely well in engines and compressors due to the high temperature, lubricated environment. Viton® gaskets are not suitable for ketones such as acetone and organic acids.

Viton® Rubber has the following properties:

  • A compression set  (70°C / 24hrs / 25% set) of 55%
  • Tensile strength (min) of 50 kg/cm^2
  • Elongation at break (min) of 200%

Silicone gaskets provide extremely good electrical insulation properties. In addition they provide excellent heat resistance and release properties. Silicone rubber gaskets are non toxic, tasteless and odorless which means they are a suitable choice for the food and pharmaceutical industries. Butser Rubber can manufacture silicone gaskets to meet food grade and medical industry standards.

Silicone Gaskets have the following properties:

  • Operating temperatures between -60°C to +230°C.
  • Excellent resistance to ozone ageing.
  • Excellent resistance to concentrated and diluted acids and bases
  • Good resistance to oils
  • Fair resistance to solvents
  • Compression set of 30%

 

Paper gaskets are used predominantly in the automotive industry due to their favorable oil resistance properties. They can also be found in low pressure applications due to the reliable sealing and low cost. Butser Rubber use pre-impregnated paper to achieve resistance to water, oil, petrol, alcohol, grease and solvents. Paper gaskets can be found in engines, pumps, pipes and axles.

Manufacturing advantage

As a specialist rubber supplier, Butser Rubber has a unique gasket manufacturing advantage over other gasket suppliers, as we are able to mould custom rubber sheet to your specification from any of the rubbers mentioned on the materials page.

This USP allows us to supply unique rubber blends in sheet form to other UK based gasket providers, which they in turn convert into gaskets for their customers. We can do it all under one roof, allowing for a shorter lead time and a competitive price.
