Cover Gasketing products are for those customers that are making dedicated fixtures for the smallest of parts.

By covering the entire fixture with gasketing, users can route parts directly into the gasketing, and then create custom vacuum pocket areas to match the size and shape of their parts.

Cover Gasket can be supplied in pre-sized sheets or custom widths in all thicknesses and densities.

  • The rule of thumb is the thinner the better. The thinner the gasket, the less the Jell-O effect that gasket will cause. But enough thickness is needed to counteract for the variances of the materials attempted to be vacuum clamped.
  • Plastics and other extremely flat surfaces will use the 1/32″ thickness(CR 03)
  • Wood Products with a slight variances, will use the 1/16″ thickness (CR 06)
  • For uneven surfaces 1/8" thickness is best (CR 12)
  • A non-porous material should be used for the fixture board to prevent vacuum loss

Cover Gasketing products are offered as:

SBC (Spoilboard Covers that are typically enough material to do a 4×8 board)

ZBC (Zone Board Cover) are custom width rolls at extended lengths. This is a great option once a shop starts utilizing a specific size fixture board often

LFC (Lineal Foot Cover) for ordering by the square foot

  • The Cover Bit is great tool that can be used for cutting the gasketing sheet
