Red Fibre Vulcanised Gasket Sheet is an economical type of general purpose sealing material. It’s been around forever (since at least the late 19th century to be more precise) and continues to be used today to punch out inexpensive washers, make wear strips and various other non-critical sealing applications.
Red Fibre Sheets are manufactured from cellulose paper with a cellulose binder. Characterised by its’ red colouring, this sealing material is very tough and hard wearing. It’s suitable for die cutting and punching and can also be cut using a guillotine, saw or drill.
Red Fibre Sheets exhibit very good resistance to tearing and are therefore often used for making washers for tapware and low-pressure sealing. The material is quite susceptible to swelling as it has a high moisture absorption rate. For this reason, if using Red Fibre for electrical insulation purposes, you should only do so in dry, low humidity environments.
Our Red Fibre has an operating temperature range between +10°C and +85°C and a density of approximately, 1.4 grams per cm³.
Red Fibre Sheet is available from Swift in several different thicknesses and sheet sizes. For anyone looking to make your own washers or seals, this inexpensive and hearty sealing material could be a great choice.
