We specialize in producing custom-cut rubber gaskets. We can fabricate gaskets out of our sheet rubber goods in almost any shape or dimension. The different types of fabrication options available to you are: hand cutting, die cutting, laser cutting, and water jet cutting. Depending on the size and scope of the project, we will offer pricing based on one or more of the above methods.
We can offer a custom quote detailing the costs of the project within 1-5 business days, depending on the complexity of the rubber gasketing job.
Please fill out the form below and give us as many details about your gasket as possible. Please provide us with all the relevant information about dimensions, such as the desired width, length, thickness, quantity, and the rubber compound needed. If you are unsure about the elastomer, tell us more about where the rubber will be used and what type of materials, chemicals, or temperatures it will come into contact with.
Most importantly, if the rubber gaskets are not intended to be simple geometrical shapes (circle, square, or rectangle) then please give us details about the shape of the product. If your desired product is irregularly shaped, it is always best to send us a drawing (e.g. blueprints) of what you have in mind. The form below has a section where you can upload an image of your drawing. If you prefer, you can also email your request direct to customer service at email@example.com.
If you prefer to manage the fabrication at your facilities, we offer bulk rubber products for immediate shipment.

Rubber gasketing is a vital part of everyday machines and appliances. It is the unsung, overlooked hero that helps allows hard metallic parts to seal together with little damage. The reason why rubber gaskets are so important to us is because they act as a seal, or barrier, between two surfaces in order to prevent any leakage of gas or liquid. They also serve to prevent hard surfaces from coming into contact with each other by acting as a buffer. Rubber is the ideal material to use for seals and gaskets because it is versatile and can be formed to fit a range of different dimensional needs. Here at Rubber-Cal, we recognize just how important industrial gaskets are for the efficiency and success of a product or business. To best suit the specific needs of your application, we offer rubber gasketing that can be custom ordered to your requirements.
It is hard to find machines today that lack rubber gaskets in them. The prevalent use of rubber gasketing speaks to how useful and effective they are. A large part of this is simply because of the rubber material itself. A rubber seal is less expensive, more durable, and more versatile than seals made of other materials. There are also a variety of different types of rubbers available. We stock natural and synthetic rubbers so that we can make the perfect custom rubber gasket for your application. Synthetic rubbers make for great seals and gaskets because a lot of industrial applications see abrasive conditions like oils, chemicals, and high temperatures. Industrial gaskets made of synthetic rubber are an affordable means to protecting expensive parts.
Our rubber gaskets are manufactured using a custom cut process, with each product cut from a rubber sheet to meet a specific order and design. The type of rubber material used to create our rubber gasketing depends entirely on the project in question. These seal components can be taken from a range of rubber materials, including EPDM and Santoprene. Different types of synthetic elastomers offer different qualities and capabilities, which is why we ask for the potential use of your rubber gaskets before manufacturing them for you. Some rubber types offer a higher working temperature, which is perfect for high-industrial settings, while others have a high level of oil and grease resistance. EPDM is most often used for applications which will have a lot of outdoor exposure, such as a rubber seal on a car. This is because EPDM performs well in the face of outdoor elements such as moisture or UV rays.
What exactly does rubber gasketing do? Its primary purpose is as a protective layer. Rubber gaskets also help seal moving parts. Firstly, a rubber seal can prevent two hard surfaces from coming into contact with each other. This can cause them to come together and affect the performance and integrity of the machine. Rubber is a softer material than metal and it is usually durable and elastic enough to absorb physical impact. Secondly, a rubber seal or gasket can prevent vital gases and liquids from leaking out. Many modern industrial applications require liquid or gas remain contained. Rubber’s combined elasticity and durability makes it a great sealing choice.
Rubber gaskets are used in a huge array of different settings, including commercial and industrial. For instance, rubber gaskets will be used to create an air and pressure-tight seal on a refrigerator or air conditioning unit. But a rubber seal will also be used to great effect in high-importance settings such as machine assembly lines.
We offer custom rubber gaskets cut from a variety of rubber sheet from EPDM to Santoprene. We can cut your custom rubber parts from our vast line of widths and gauges. We aim to collaborate with our customers so that they can get the perfect rubber gasketing for their project. Depending on the specific needs of an individual piece, we offer three ways of fabricating rubber gaskets: hand cutting, die cutting, and water jet cutting.
Hand cutting is the quickest method of fabricating gaskets that do not have tight dimensional tolerances. It is reserved for general-purpose gaskets. This method can be effective for seals and gaskets that have simple designs. Thicker, longer, and larger parts are sometimes easier to cut by hand. A far more effective alternative to hand cutting gaskets is die cutting. A die cutting part is punched out of the shape of each gasket according to the specifications provided by the customer. This is an efficient way to produce high volumes of industrial gaskets specialized for precise applications. For the most precise fabrication of rubber gasketing, we recommend water-jet cutting. Keep in mind that this is our most expensive option, but it is the best method of ensuring that you get the most exact rubber gaskets made for your application. This method combines high volume output and micro-precision. In the case of industrial machinery and other expensive equipment, ultra-precise rubber gasketing will probably be required to keep it in good working order and operating at peak capacity.
We know just how crucial the proper kind of rubber gasketing is for your application. The smooth operation of industry relies on rubber gasketing working efficiently as intended. With our variety of different types of rubbers, natural, recycled or synthetic, you can rest assured that the perfect elastomer for the job is available. Rubber gasketing will keep your machine safe by preventing rough materials from making contact and by sealing in gases and liquids. Your industrial project cannot afford to go without proper rubber gaskets!
