Die-cut gaskets are commonly used to seal mating surfaces in various applications. Opting for die-cut gaskets offers a cost-conscious sealing solution for increased supply chain flexibility and design changes without the hassle of retooling expenses. Since 1982, Ace Seal has been a leading manufacturer of sealing solutions for many industries and applications, providing gaskets for standard applications and manufacturing custom solutions for unique applications and their challenges.

Gasket Cutting Processes & Materials

The process of die-cutting gaskets prioritizes tight tolerances and exacting standards to create identical sealing solutions. Using automatic or semi-automatic presses, gaskets are cut from the material to the necessary specifications, providing a cost-effective and reliable manufacturing process. Ace Seal employs cutting-edge equipment that produces precision cuts with quick turnaround times to deliver high-quality products.

Die-Cut vs. Kiss-Cut Gaskets

Processes for kiss-cutting and die-cutting are similar but yield slightly different results. Producing components with the die-cutting process involves knife cutting through materials to create the specified shape, whereas kiss-cutting only partially cuts through the materials. In kiss-cutting, the die blade cuts through the gasket material but not through the adhesive liner backing. Kiss-cutting is ideal for stick-and-stay gasket options.

Material Options for Die-Cut Gaskets

Gaskets can be cut from various materials depending on your application's specifications. When choosing the material requirements, it’s critical to consider exposure to high temperatures, pressure, chemical resistance, and the needs of your application. Ace Seal offers a variety of materials for custom die-cut gaskets, including the following:

  • Nitrile
  • Butyl
  • Neoprene
  • Ethylene-Propylene
  • Flourocarbon (Viton ®)
  • Polyurethane
  • Silicone
  • Elastomers
  • Cork
