Other materials

  • Cork: Economical and generally suitable for light bolting and relatively mild service conditions. Ideal for easily damaged flanges (for example glass or ceramic). Usually limited to light duty service.
  • Cork-rubber composites: Desirable characteristics of cork, combined with the advantages of synthetic rubber, giving improved handling and shelf life over cork composition, while it may also have better chemical resistance (dependent on the rubber binder). May also be reinforced with fibers for improved load retention. Ideal for light duty applications.
  • Industrial felt: According to the characteristics of the felt in terms of density, composition, color and appearance, felt can be used for soundproofing, insulation and as anti-vibration element (filters, seals, gaskets, etc..).
