Cork Elastomer Gaskets


Cork Elastomer Gaskets are among the most suitable and economical materials for use in a number of industries. J A Harrison provides the best quality cork gaskets, both in pure and modified forms. Our range of cork gaskets covers the needs of all industries.


From early times cork has been a very useful material for humans. It has been used in numerous applications by people and inventors all over the globe. For many machines, cork is an essential material needed for heat resistance, sealing and weight reduction.


The popularity of cork is due to its unique combination of beneficial properties.


    • Cork is light and saves weight
    • Cork is chemically resistant to most organic and inorganic solvents
    • Cork is impermeable to all aqueous and non‐aqueous substances
    • Cork can easily be modified in dimensions and texture 


Flexibility, low‐cost and longevity have made cork very popular as a gasket material. The light weight is very helpful in machinery that needs a lot of gaskets and sealing joints. In addition cork is easily cut and shaped into gaskets of varying sizes.


Cork is a lightweight and reliable material for such purposes.


Equipment like transformers also use Cork Gaskets in their cooling coils to prevent transfer of electrical charge.


A great quality of Cork gaskets is their elasticity. The elasticity of cork gaskets makes them suitable for use in joints that have variable expansion. Inter‐component joints in engines use cork gaskets (for example between plastic and metal) as cork fills gaps caused by expansion.


The heat resistance of cork also comes in very useful here. It prevents excess heat from metal parts damaging more sensitive non‐metal parts. Cork gaskets are frequently used for heat insulation purposes in a variety of areas. The light weight allows greater thickness of insulation layers to be placed to control heat transfer.
