RH Nuttall Limited manufactures cork washers, cork gaskets, cork seals, cork strips and cork insulations in the following types of cork. A self adhesive backing can be added to most cork parts, including cork sheeting, we produce to aid in certain types of customer applications. Furthermore, our cork products can be supplied in a vast range of different types and thicknesses depending on their usage. Our cork products also cover a broad spectrum of different grades from petrochemical and marine uses to anti vibration and general engineering solution types. Cork is a good gasket material due to its impenetrability and resilience qualities. The main characteristics that make cork such a popular choice in washers, gaskets, strips and insulations are listed below.
- Extremely durable and hard wearing
- Fire retardant
- Excellent insulating qualities due to its thermal and acoustic properties.
- Outstanding water tight and air tight sealing properties
- Flexible and elastic
Furthermore our cork products can be combined with numerous synthetic rubber compounds to enhance the sealing properties already portrayed by cork alone. Cork can be bonded with rubber compounds such as neoprene or nitrile resulting in even higher capabilities. Certain grades can offer more resistane to fluids as well as a high temperature prevail.
The different grades of cork we offer are detailed below:-
CC2040 – Nitrile Bonded Cork
This is a firm rubber cork material suitable for medium bolt pressure with good flexibility and resilience. The physical characteristics along with good fuel and oil resistance make this a high qualified material for automotive and industrial gaskets (gas meter).
CC2020 Neoprene/Nitrile Bonded Cork
Excellent general-purpose gasket material, it’s toughness and good compressibility characteristics make it highly satisfactory in a very wide range of applications. The material has a very low swelling in oils and fuels, which makes it especially suitable for transformer applications.
