We manufacture gaskets and seals for the marine industry, such as for use in shipping, super-yachts, and even sub-sea installations.
In addition to replacement or bespoke parts for marine engines, we can also manufacture parts such as packings and hatch seals.
The following are factors to consider when specifying a gasket into a marine environment. Salt water is corrosive to many gasket materials if they are constantly submerged. Choose a material such as a neoprene rubber, neoprene foam, or EPDM (which is common in the water industry) to try and maxamise the longevity of your gasket.
Exposure to sunlight can weaken a material over extended periods of time, and so it is also important to consider ozone resistance as part of your material specification. If your gasket is going to be under pressure from being in a sub-sea for extended periods of time, it is also import to consider this during design.
In a marine environment it is common to use Plastazote and EVA foams, that are heat and vacuum formable.
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: 2015.
