by Talbros Sealing Talbros Sealing Materials
A gasket is generally a sealing material that is placed between two surfaces to avoid any type of leakage. Both the surfaces are joined under heavy compression to prevent any type of leakage. There are various types of gaskets that are prepared with different types of material for various specific applications. Presently for high performances, Rubber Cork Gasket are more preferred over another type of material for sealing purposes. It is the combination of 30% synthetic rubber polymer and 70 % first-grade granulated corks which are mixed under high pressure and temperature. This material is the most optimal solution for sealing any modern age gasket applications.

Features Of Rubber Cork Gasket:

Cork when combined with rubber material like silicone or neoprene, the material exhibit good resistance against solvents, chemicals and various types of fuel. Also, these materials exhibit the properties of cork like excellent flexibility and very high compression. They also exhibit excellent resistance towards fungus, extreme weather, and acid. Generally, cork is mixed with various kinds of rubber material like Neoprene, EPDM, Buna-N, and Viton. These gaskets made up from Cork Rubber Material are also used as anti-vibration sealing material in cars, motors, and transformers.

Various Application of Rubber Cork Gasket:

Gaskets are applicable in various industries. Some of them are as follows;
  • Rubber gaskets are used in absorbing any type of shocks and vibration for the electric motor. They used as mounts for better damping of the noise and vibrations.
  • Soft Gasket Materials are used in turbines, compressors, and various engines where there is a requirement of oil and fuel resistant sealing materials.
  • Gaskets are also used in damping the shocks and vibration in locomotive engines. The gasket used in the engine is required to be oil, chemical and fuel resistant.
  • Viton Cork Rubber Gaskets are used in petroleum devices.
  • EPDM Cork Rubber Gaskets are used in a device made for handling corrosive liquids.

Advantages of Cork Rubber Gaskets:

There are many advantages of using cork rubber gaskets in various parts of the machine. Not only they reduce the noise but also absorb most of the vibrations. Before selecting any Sealing Materials India, the customer must understand the different advantages of using cork rubber gaskets.
  • Most of the Cork Rubber Gaskets have a wide range of fluid compatibility.
  • Almost all Cork Rubber Gaskets have high flexibility and compressibility.
  • Cork Rubber Gaskets have high resistance towards any type of solvent, oil, and fuel.
  • They are moderately resistant towards acid, fungus and extreme weather conditions.
  • They are very resistant to any type of fluid penetration.
  • Cork Rubber Gaskets are very good anti-vibration and acoustic materials.
  • All Cork Rubber Gaskets have properties like impact resistant, anti-slip and also act as shock absorber. 
  • All cork rubber gaskets are resistant towards ozone, UV Lights and aging effects.

Forms the points one can have some idea about Cork Rubber Gaskets that are used in various devices. Before ordering these gaskets, make sure to measure dimensions of the devices upon which gaskets will be used. Then select the most suitable gasket that is applicable for your machine.
