Jamak Fabrication Europe – Summary of Gasketing & Sealing Capabilities

supply the following GASKETS – see www.jamakuk.co.uk

Nitrile Rubber Gaskets – can be found in a number of different applications. Typically, Nitrile Rubber is suitable for environments which are subject to oil and fuel. Jamak Fabrication can manufacture Nitrile Rubber gaskets in different shore-hardness’s and color’s dependent on the application. Operating temperatures range from -30°C to 100°C.

Nitrile Rubber Gaskets are suitable for applications requiring:

  • Oil Resistance
  • Fuel (Petrol, Diesel and Aviation fuel) resistance
  • Acid resistance
  • Gas resistance
  • Water resistance
  • Low and high temperature resistance

EPDM rubber gaskets are a form of synthetic rubber which provides good all-round performance against several environments. Our custom-made EPDM rubber gasket have particularly good weather resistance due to the chemical make-up of our rubber compound material. EPDM gaskets are typically used for Automotive seals and Marine seals due to its excellent weathering resistance. EPDM is not suitable for exposure to fuel and oil.

EPDM rubber gaskets have the following properties:

  • Acid Resistance
  • Weather Resistance
  • Ageing Resistance
  • UV Resistance
  • Chemical Resistance
  • Keytone Resistance

Neoprene rubber gaskets have a range of suitable applications due to their all-round performance. Neoprene has good abrasion and strength properties which make them suitable for moving components. The operating temperature range of Neoprene gaskets is 30°C to 70°C.

Precision laser cut gasket

Neoprene is suitable for rubber parts requiring:

  • Abrasion Resistance
  • UV Resistance
  • Weathering Resistance
  • Ageing Resistance
  • Ozone Resistance
  • Acid Resistance
  • Vegetable Fat Resistance

Our bespoke Natural Rubber compound is an exceptional rubber which is well known for its resistance to abrasion and recovery form high pressure forces. Natural rubber can be used as an anti-vibration material for industrial machinery as well as engine components. Natural rubber has poor ozone & weathering resistance and oil & solvent resistance.

Natural rubber has the following properties:

  • High tensile strength
  • Good resilience and abrasion properties
  • Excellent compression set resistance
  • Tensile strength up to 25MPa
  • Operating temperatures between -70°C and 80°C
  • Shore hardness range between 35-90

Viton® rubber gaskets have excellent resistance to high temperatures, oil, ozone, oxygen and mineral oil. They also provide resistance to acids, fuels and chlorinated hydrocarbons. Viton® gaskets operate extremely well in engines and compressors due to the high temperature, lubricated environment. Viton® gaskets are not suitable for ketones such as acetone and organic acids.

Viton® Rubber has the following properties:

  • A compression set  (70°C / 24hrs / 25% set) of 55%
  • Tensile strength (min) of 50 kg/cm^2
  • Elongation at break (min) of 200%

Silicone gaskets provide extremely good electrical insulation properties. In addition they provide excellent heat resistance and release properties. Silicone rubber gaskets are non-toxic, tasteless and odorless which means they are a suitable choice for the food and pharmaceutical industries. Jamak can manufacture silicone gaskets to meet food grade and medical industry standards.

Silicone Gaskets have the following properties:

  • Operating temperatures between -60°C to +230°C.
  • Excellent resistance to ozone ageing.
  • Excellent resistance to concentrated and diluted acids and bases
  • Good resistance to oils
  • Fair resistance to solvents
  • Compression set of 30%
For all your molded rubber needs if you don’t see it please ask – we can manufacture goods to meet your specific needs and requirements.

The Benefits of Rubber

  • Rubbers can function within a wide thermal range from -80°C to +300°C.  Higher is possible in some cases.
  • Supply in a wide range of colors is feasible.
  • It is resistant to extremes of weather and outdoor environments.  For instance, if good ozone resistance is required there are good rubber material options. 
  • It has good resistance to fuels, oils and chemicals while retaining its properties.  Such rubbers will suit many auto & industrial needs.
  • We can offer flame retardant and self extinguishing materials to UL94 compliance – hence these can suit safety critical needs. 
  • It can be relied on to maintain tension and compression forces.
  • Rubber is conformable and adaptable.  It can therefore accommodate movement, shock, thermal changes, tolerances and roughness.
  • Rubber can absorb vibration and noise.
  • Rubber is an insulator.  Hence – it suits parts used in electrical applications which need insulation.
  • It can be used for gas tight applications and as a fluid seal or separator.
  • Rubber has low thermal conductivity.  It can therefore be used to reduce heat transfer.
  • Items in rubber can be coated.  For example – to modify the surface.
  • Rubber is compatible with other engineering materials and can therefore be combined with them in many different ways.  This  includes bonding.
