Product Description

Our high compression cork sheeting is suitable for use in low to medium bolt pressure applications. It also features excellent anti-vibration properties for use as a gasketing material or as isolation pads. This particular rubber bonded cork material combines durable mechanical properties with flexibility in a single package. It provides compression rates between 30-50% while under 400psi of pressure. It also quickly recovers by over 80% after the pressure has been released. We supply this particular material in 1m x 1m sheets with thicknesses ranging from 2mm to 25mm a standard. Our manufacturing team can also cut the material into strips or manufacture bespoke gaskets to your exact requirements.

The combination of physical properties with oil and fuel resistance makes our high compression cork sheeting a highly versatile material. We regularly supply this material for use in automotive and manufacturing industries both as sheets and as bespoke gaskets. Our rubber bonded cork is lightweight and easy to install and handle. The material is also easy to cut on location using a variety of heavy duty cutting tools.
