If you’re looking for a rubber supplier to make spare parts or rubber gaskets, it can be difficult to know where to look.

6 things to consider when choosing a gasket manufacturer

Here are some of the key factors to keep in mind when choose a gasket manufacturer:

At Industrial Rubber we have the expertise and tools to provide gaskets with superior temperature, flame, and chemical resistance, and are also able to meet bespoke requirements.

2. Materials

Gaskets can be produced in a range of materials, so ensure that your chosen manufacturer is able to produce products in the material that you require. They should also be able to offer guidance when it comes to choosing the best material for your application.

At Industrial Rubber, we will listen to your requirements and help you choose the best material for your rubber gaskets, ensuring it meets your needs in terms of temperature, UV, pressure, and electromagnetic interference.

3. Safety

The role of a gasket in any machinery is crucial, so it’s important that your manufacturer is able to produce high quality products that live up to expectations. So always check the manufacturer’s reputation and credentials.

6. Price

Of course, while safety and quality are the most important factors when choosing a gasket manufacturer, competitive pricing will also play a role in your decision.
