Gasket applications cover a large spectrum of materials ranging from elastomers, fibers, paper, PTFE, and non-asbestos gasket materials. Your gasket manufacturing options are as varied as Die Cutting, Lathe Cutting, Kiss Cutting, Water-Jet cutting, Flash cutting and Rotary Cutting. Monroe has over 50 years of gasket experience, working with the materials listed below for a wide range of applications. We understand the importance of a proper gasket and the cost considerations.
One very cost effective method of cutting gaskets is utilizing steel rule dies; others are lathe-cutting and thropcutting. Not all methods will produce the same tolerances and some materials only lend themselves to certain methods of manufacturing. Perhaps you have a critical dimension, this may require a hardened steel tool or perhaps it will be best produced by water jet cutting or even molding.
Gaskets can also be produced from extruded rubber profiles cut to length and vulcanized to form continuous custom gaskets. For larger gaskets we can incorporate interlocking or “dove tailed” parts. Many of the materials can be offered with pressure sensitive adhesives on one or both sides, when bolt holes or mounting pins are not an option.
