By popular request, we have added three new laserable gasket materials in four thicknesses. Our customers who love to work on cars are sure to find a these useful.
- Cork Blend: Temperature range is -39Â° to +249Â° F. This looks like regular cork, but is actually made of cork granules held together with Buna-N. This material resists oil and aromatic fuel. It is useful not only for gaskets, but also for decorative and sound-dampening applications.
- High Temperature Gasket: Maximum temperature is 450Â° F. This material is made from a blend of organic fiber fillers with an acrylic-nitrile-latex binder. It resists water, grease, and oils. Maximum pressure of 1000 psi.
- Treated Paper Gasket: Maximum temperature is 350Â° F. This material is made from recycled material with an SBR binder. It resists water and grease, with has some resistance to oils. It is similar to the "make your own gasket" material commonly sold in hardware and automotive stores. Maximum pressure of 1000 psi.
Keep in mind that these three materials will have a slightly charred edge when cut on the laser. We think you'll agree that precise laser-cut gaskets are far better than gaskets made with scissors and X-acto knives.
