As can we manufacture bespoke gaskets to your specific drawings, and have been involved with many different aspects of automotive manufacturing: from pedal grips in racing cars to the restoration of classic cars and motorbikes.
As gaskets are used throughout vehicles, when choosing the right material you must consider exposure to pressure, different fuels, under bonnet temperatures, and friction.
Nitrile and viton rubbers are recommended for use in fuel systems. Due to the strong additives that are now present in modern fuels gasket erosion must be considered. Standing fuels break down and absorb water, which can in turn causes the break-down of gasket materials. If the fuel in the tank is to be left standing for more than a month then you should ideally either drain the tank, or agitate the fuel occasionally, to prevent gasket erosion.
We offer our customers complete material certification and traceability. Our quality system even allows for customers to control how their parts are manufactured.
We are quality assured to ISO 9001.
