A gasket sheet - often referred to as 'gasket paper', despite usually being made from silicone rubber, cork, nitrile or any other robust flexible material - is a large piece of sheeting intended to be used in making quick, cost-effective gaskets (seals), for joining surfaces or components together.
In its simplest form, a gasket is really just a small part cut out of some sheet material, very often in an ‘o-ring’ shape, that helps form a compressible leak-proof seal between two surfaces or components. Gaskets are usually made from a robust, flexible, and/or chemical/heat/acid-resistant substance.
They’re most commonly used in pipework and ducting systems, where they’re called flange gaskets. Here they help join two sections of pipe together seamlessly to form a continuous, non-leak channel through which liquids or gases can flow.
Some gaskets are defined by their intended application, such as vehicle gaskets in the engines of cars, planes, boats and more. Others are defined by their physical composition and materials, or by the specific nature of the role they’re made to perform (such as acid resistance or high-pressure functionality).
Buying gasket sheets is a cost-effective way to enable the production of new replacement or bespoke gaskets quickly and easily, as older ones eventually begin to stiffen, degrade or fail.
