Cork gasket sheets are produced from high grade cork granules sourced from the cork tree and combined with a synthetic rubber binder (Nitrile, Neoprene or Styrene-Butadiene Rubber). The combination of the resilience of rubber and the natural compressibility of cork gives cork gaskets sheets superior mechanical strength and improved resistance to oil and fuels.
Due to the close cell structure, cork gasket sheets can be compressed to around half its thickness and still recover when the load is removed. It’s also lightweight, flexible, and resists attack by water, many oils and even ozone.
Cork Gasket Sheets can be easily cut into custom shapes, making it a popular choice in automotive and low/mid bolt pressure applications.
At Kemtron, our Cork Gasket Sheets are available in sheets or we can custom manufacture your gaskets using our stock of Cork Gasket Sheets.
