Fabric supported rubber gaskets
Fabric supported rubber gaskets and diaphragms are usually made of synthetic rubbers and reinforced with fabrics such as fiberglass, polyester, or rayon. These synthetic fabrics impart additional properties such as dimensional stability and EMI shielding. Fabric reinforced gaskets with adhesive backings are also available.
Interstate Specialty Products can recommend the right rubber gasket material and fabric reinforcement for your application. Often, fabric supported rubber gaskets and diaphragms are made of rubber gasket sheet materials such as:
Fiberglass fabric is an excellent choice for improved resistance to sun, mildew, and insect damage. Fabric supported rubber gaskets and diaphragms that contain polyester reinforced materials have good electrical insulation properties and increased resistance to alkalis, acids, and solvents.
Polyester fabric is flammable, however, and not recommended for static sensitive conditions. For these applications, rayon fabric may be a better choice. As an experienced gasket manufacturer, Interstate Specialty Products can help with material selection also recommend precision die cutting or digital die-less cutting.
Interstate Specialty Products can also supply flame-retardant EMI gaskets made of solid, sponge, or foam rubbers for shielding and grounding electronics and telecommunications equipment.
