Softcut is a general term for gaskets that have been produced in any flexible material.
As part of the 4BG Group of companies our production facilities for soft cut gaskets are among the most varied in the gasket industry.
We can produce small prototype quantities up to large production runs in a bewildering number of materials including:
Production is not limited to straightforward flat cut parts. We can also form parts into various shapes. Material such as Leather is still used to produce cup washers for valves for instance and electrical insulation materials are often produced with bends and creases to give a continuous electrical resistant barrier inside many pieces of equipment.
Screen Printed Gaskets are a specialised type of gasket. The basic concept of a screen printed gasket is that a fine bead of silicon is applied to a carrier material. This type of gaskets is best used on very intricate applications such as valves and hydraulic applications.
We also supply conductive / non conductive elastomer seals and gaskets in silicone / fluorosilicone typically used in EMC applications.
If you require some design input we are only too happy to help in whatever way we can. Our experience in this industry will allow us to make recommendations of suitable materials for your application. Why not give us a try?
