Gaskets are essential for sealing and protecting industrial equipment. Die-cutting is excellent for mass-producing gaskets to exact specifications, while hand-cutting is ideal for specialized gasket needs. Investing in custom gasket services can ensure you get the necessary solutions without wasting time and money. McNeil delivers high-quality gaskets for all your standard and custom needs.

Die-Cut Gaskets & Shapes
Die-cut gaskets are heat-resistant seals that help prevent damage, contamination and leaks in industrial components. Die-cut gaskets are made through the die-cutting process. For die-cutting, a specialized machine cuts each gasket into the correct size and shape for each use. Die-cutting creates gaskets from flexible, reliable materials for a tighter seal. The accuracy and specialization of die-cutting make it highly effective, cost-efficient and consistent.
The materials used for die-cut gaskets are both flexible and heat-resistant — essential properties for many materials used in industrial processes. These properties ensure each component creates a tight, durable seal. The die-cut method allows for highly-specialized shapes and multiple products. You can order a gasket and receive as many of that shape as you need. This method is extremely convenient for industrial applications requiring many specific gasket shapes.
The cutting device — called a die — swiftly and accurately punches out your gasket shape. The fast, accurate nature of the die means multiples of the same gasket shape are produced very quickly. If you need many identical gaskets, die-cutting can minimize costs without sacrificing quality.
Custom gaskets offer a more specialized solution to your gasket needs. Mass-produced die-cut gaskets work well for standard applications, but many industries require custom gaskets to meet their needs. We can create custom superior insulating and high-temperature gaskets to meet your unique requirements. The experts at McNeil will work with you to find the right material for the job, and we’ll cut custom gaskets and shapes to fit your components.
We can hand-cut gaskets for smaller or even more specialized orders to give you the same reliable quality without needing larger gasket quantities. Hand-cut methods are ideal for projects involving small, complicated angles or special materials. Some materials and angles are unsuitable for machine die-cutting — in this case, our expert team will carefully hand-cut your gasket from the template. Hand-cutting ensures a high-quality result for the most specialized of gasket needs.
Standard gaskets are used across the industrial sector. They have dozens of applications and are extremely useful. However, many industries require more specialized gaskets to handle unique problems or extreme conditions. Custom and high-temperature gaskets are used in many critical sectors, including:
- Steel & Nonferrous
- Chemical processing
- Ceramic and Glass
