It is a highly resistant material to some specific oils, and can be used in a wide range of applications.
Where can you use cork gaskets?
The cork gasket is sometimes used to eliminate specific types of reverberation and noise problems within an application. Often, parts such as heavy duty pumps, lifts and compressors come neoprene bonded with these gaskets secured beneath them. In this application, the cork gasket is used for noise reduction purposes. The cork gaskets manufactured at Stephens Gaskets possess commendable elasticity, that combines with its near-impermeability. Our cork rubber is ideal for use with petrol and lubricating oils. Other significant properties of these gaskets include brilliant recovery, the ability to be used with poor quality flanges, and they can be placed under a low bolt loading. For ease of application, here at Stephens Gaskets our gaskets are available with the option of self adhesive backing. Common industries to use cork gaskets includes the automotive and electrical industries.
Common applications include:
- Crank case covers
- General covers and lids
- Electrical transformers
