Mercer Gasket & Shim fabricates superior custom rubber gaskets that can be die cut or CNC flash cut from a variety of rubber materials.
Typically used in piping and plumbing applications, our rubber gaskets offer excellent resilience and sealing for applications involving low temperatures and pressures and mild chemical environments.
Mercer’s highly knowledgeable team of engineers can guide you through the process of selecting the ideal rubber/PVC material for your unique gasket applications:
- Natural (Pure Gum)
- Neoprene – Cloth Inserted
- Nitrile (NBR, Buna-N)
- SBR (Red Rubber)
- SBR – Cloth Inserted
Most rubber, whether natural and synthetic, is also available in sponge form (cellular rubber) in both open and closed cell grades. Mercer offers neoprene, nitrile, silicone and Viton in sponge form. Closed cell sponge is available for applications requiring high compressibility, while open cell is available for cushioning applications where sealing is not an issue.
Using material sourced from domestic rubber manufacturers, Mercer keeps a large quantity of rubber materials in stock and can provide custom designs and shapes in varying grades, thicknesses and hardness to meet your specific needs.
