Neoprene rubber gaskets are cut from a strong, synthetic material and are primarily used in external sealing applications. The elastomer offers good resistance to abrasion and provides excellent resistance to ozone, ageing and weathering. Neoprene gaskets can be used with animal fats, vegetable oils and inorganic salts, but are not suitable for applications involving aromatic hydrocarbons and ketones.
At PAR, a range of neoprene gaskets are available that offer additional characteristics and standards such as food approval, BS 2752 compliancy and flame retardant options. A range of standard flange, dovetail and picture frame gaskets are available and we can satisfy both low and high quantity requirements. For information on how to accurately measure your gasket, please see our guide on 'How to Measure a Gasket'.
