These gasketing materials are pliable, flexible, bendable, and easy to die cut into specific shapes. Typical usages include die cut gaskets for pumps, filters, flanges, small engines, marine equipment, dust seals, spacers, shims, gear boxes, and transmissions.

Standard Products

2231 from Auburn is an environmentally compatible, low-density, gasket material formulated from recycled gasket materials. It has an added styrene rubber binder, and is an excellent choice for die cut gaskets required for general, light-duty applications with short duration maximum temperatures up to 180°C (350°F).

NI-2085 from Auburn has a nitrile butadiene rubber binder for resistance to water, coolant, oil and fuel. It has excellent strength and sealability characteristics for is used for die cut gaskets, and is intended for applications with short duration maximum temperatures up to 190°C (375°F). NI-2085 has UL component recognition.

NV-512 is a cellulose fiber material with a fully cured nitrile butadiene rubber binder for increased strength and fluid resistance. It has a very high tensile strength and crush resistance, as is used for die cut gaskets in air pumps, carburetors, gear boxes and transmissions. It is intended for applications with short duration maximum temperatures up to 180°C (355°F).

Adhesive Backings

Auburn is capable of taking any economical sealing gasket material and applying adhesive to one or both of its surfaces. Auburn adhesives are available for both raw materials and finished die cut gaskets including die cut shims, washers, spacers, gaskets and seals. Auburn works with dozens of popular adhesives including:

 The use of adhesives has many distinct advantges that include eliminating the messy job of cementing during assembly operations, assuring a uniform amount of adhesive per part, and reducing labor time in assembly operations.

Manufacturing Availability

Auburn’s Economical Sealing Solutions® Line of product are available in many standard thicknesses - .010”, .015”, .031”, .047”, 062” and master rolls that are 40” wide. These products can be further supplied in a variety of forms that include continuous length rolls, sheets, precision strips, slit-to-width rolls and custom die cut gaskets.

Manufacturing Capabilities

Auburn’s speciality is fabrication of precision die cut gaskets with tight tolerances and clean cut edges for any production quantity from a single piece up to millions. All die cut gaskets are cleaned, inspected and neatly packaged prior to shipment. 


For a simple part such as a plain die cut washer, a disc, a rectangular pad or a uniform-width strip, a house-tool is very often available at no additional cost. For a more complex part that requires a tool, a steel rule die is built. A steel rule die’s cost is usually quite minimal ($95.00-$125.00 range) and its production time is ordinarily only 1 or 2 days, at which time a first article sample is sent to the customer for a final approval.
