In June of 2006 I posted a brief description for Material Jointing. This shows two methods used to joint silicone sheet, the one being a combination edge/lap joint. Stockwell joins silicone sheet regularly for large gaskets that exceed standard silicone sheet manufacturing widths. Below are pictures of an edge/lap joint made from a high tear strength class 3 silicone (ZZ-R-765, Class 3B Grade 50). Also shown is a large dome gasket which Stockwell custom fabricated using edge and lap jointing methods.

For more information about silicone jointed gaskets, silicone gaskets, or other gasket fabrication applications, please contact Stockwell at (215) 335-3005 or visit our website at
