... nature’s solution
to industry’s technical sealing, gasketing,
and padding issues.

Jelinek rubber & cork products and materials are known as SuberSeal™.
The word is derived from the scientific Latin name of cork which
is Suber. The natural, renewable, and ecological brilliance of the
ancient cork oak tree, Quercus Suber,
combined with specified formulations of rubber properties form the
ultimate 21st century gasket and sealing materials.
SuberSeal™ rubber & cork materials are
offered by Jelinek for a variety
of uses, among them:
- automotive gaskets
- electrical and transformer gaskets
- anti-vibration padding
- absorbtion pads
- flooring underlayment stress-crack prevention
- general sealing and gasketing needs
- liners and spacers
- cushion pads
- anti-scratch pads
- surface protective pads
- non-slip material
- model train track beds
Production of “rubbercork” is relatively new.
As the word suggests, the primary raw materials used is a mixture
of cork and rubber specifically formulated to meet technical
specifications and standards.
Through extensive research and development during the mid 20th century,
it was found that this unique mixture of materials created a product
that is ideally suited for most sealing applications. R&D
continues today allowing introduction of new and innovative binder
and sealing technology. New formulation varieties fully utilize and
maintain the natural characteristics of cork but when blended with
the properties of rubber result in the most effective sealing gaskets
and cushion pads. It is now well recognized that “rubbercork”
combines the compressibility and resilience of cork with the high
mechanical strength and dimensional stability of rubber.
A wide variety of formulations using different rubber types (natural
rubber, synthetic rubber, nitrile, or neoprene) combined with different
milled cork grain sizes are available to meet industry’s various
requirements. It was not until the 1970’s that rubber cork became
widely used throughout many major industries and today continues to
be at the forefront of modern gasket technology. By combining decades
of experience in the cork industry with modern day rubber technology,
Jelinek successfully introduced SuberSeal™
as the 21st century’s primary gasket materials.
