At Atlantic Gasket Corporation, we manufacture a variety of die cut parts and gaskets from vegetable (also known as plant) fibre. For industrial, chemical, petroleum, petrochemical, and automotive industries, this natural fibre is the material of choice in a wide range of sealing applications. Our relationship with Fibreflex Packing & Mfg. Co., a leading material manufacturer, allows us to supply our customers with an excellent high-grade vetgetable/plant fibre sheet packing referred to as Detroiter, which is efficiently saturated with a glue-glycerine impregnant and is rendered insoluable by means of a tanning agent (formaldehyde) to create a strong, flexible packing with properties that are retained during proper storage and in use. From engineering, design and tooling, to die-cutting, waterjet cutting, fabrication, laminating, and slitting, we have the in-house capabilities to meet the tightest tolerances and the highest quality standards, regardless of end product or application.
|Vegetable/Plant Fibre||Material Properties||Applications|
