RH Nuttall Limited manufacture and supply a wide range of Novus washers of almost any shape and size. A compressed, non-asbestos jointing material made of aramid and glass fibres with a nitrile binder, Novus washers offer an excellent sealing solution in high temperature, oil sealing and steam sealing applications.

Novus washers from RH Nuttall can be supplied in any shape from a simple, round or square design to bespoke configurations that feature numerous holes and slots across the flange. Novus washers demonstrate a high level of strength, preventing them from being crushed or deformed under pressure, therefore reducing the amount of creep, ensuring a long term, quality seal.

Found in numerous appliances including boilers, gas pipes, water pipes, oil sumps, compressors, fires, cookers and heat exchangers, the Novus washer products produced by our team in Birmingham can also have a self-adhesive backing applied for easy application. Furthermore, most base materials are held in stock and therefore can be turned around immediately. Our range of Novus washers are most commonly cut from three different grades of material, depending on the requirements of sealing and the customer’s individual requirements.
