by Crazzy Paul Digital Markting Professional
Cork gaskets are considered to be the oldest gasket types having a wide variety of application. It is capable of having comprehensive strength providing a tight seal. Gaskets are a component of various mechanical devices that ensures a reliable performance. Gaskets are designed to fit into the irregularities in the mating surfaces. Gaskets are designed to efficiently combat the potential disasters. Since the discovery of gaskets, they are improvised and redesigned so as they could fulfill the target efficiently. Gaskets have seen major reform in the type of material it is made of.

  • Firstly, it has high flexibility and compressibility which allows it to accommodate for every purpose.

  • When the cork is combined with rubber-like neoprene and rubber, it can exhibit good solvent, oil or fuel resistance capability.

  • Their range of thickness can range from 1/4 inch to 1/32 inch.

  • They are available without pressure sensitive backing.

  • They are light-weight and are hydrophobic in nature.

Advantages of cork gaskets:

The cork gasket has a wide range of advantages. These benefits include;
  • Compressible and elastic nature
  • High insulation power from fire-related accidents.
  • Resistant to tear and wear
  • Resistant to water penetration
  • Buoyant and light-weight
  • Indestructible and sound-proof
  • Unaffected by extremely high temperatures
  • Appealing aesthetic look that lures the customers
  • The oil-resistant nature allows it to have reduced lateral flow.
  • The material is resistant to boiling temperatures with a high frictional range of values.
  • Cork gasket that is supplemented with rubber is slip-free, shock-absorber and impact-resistant.

Application of cork gaskets:

Gaskets made of cork have wide acceptance in Automotive, Transformer & Industrial Gaskets companies. Their major sectors of applications include;

  • In trivet and coaster backing, seals, washers, bulletin boards, glass separation gaps, bumpers with an adhesive back, coaters, spacers, and discs.

  • Cork Gaskets that are made in a combination of rubbers which has a composition of 70% cork and 30% rubber and can be used in automotive, aviation, railroads, tractor, transformers, Transmission gaskets, electrical equipment, petroleum, and ships.

  • Cork rubber gaskets can be also used in protective pads, bumpers, spacers, switchgear or transformer.
