Rubber gaskets are a specific form of mechanical seals used to fill space to maintain fluid, gas, and other contaminants from where they should not go. They are most commonly used in the industry where installation of mechanical parts is important as in the car manufacturing industry.
Gaskets can come in various sizes and shapes and consist of various materials designed to perform sealing functions for very specific terms. There are various types of rubber gaskets (also called ประเก็นยางธรรมชาติ in the Thai language)ranging from industrial rubber gaskets, high-temperature rubber gaskets and heat resistant gaskets.

Making custom gaskets can be done in four ways: rubber mould, handpieces, cut water jets and dead gaskets, gasket wound spiral and jacket jackets. It also includes forms of custom mould gaskets and extruded rubber gaskets. Lathe cutting rubber and non-metal gaskets can be made to order.
Some important considerations when looking for rubber gaskets and gasketing include maximum operating pressure, operating temperatures and electromagnetic and radio frequency interference shields.
Companies that specialize in rubber gaskets usually manufacture other types of industrial gaskets, neoprene gaskets, custom gaskets and die cut gaskets, oil resistant and flange gaskets, urethane gaskets and silicone gaskets
These gaskets can be sold with retail values or can be sold to wholesalers, usually for people who work professionally in the fields that use rubber gaskets. Wholesale buying is an advantage because bulk discounts reduce prices.
