Sick of buying rubbish cardboard gaskets, so going to invest in some gasket material. There are loads of suppliers on fleebay etc.

Does anyone have any preference/recommendations for day to day gasket material?

Cheers

what sort of material?

If your after paper look on the RS site, I think post is free, your looking for Statite or similar.

If you want a thicker material that doesn't ever seem to leak, look at something like Klinger C4400, costs a lot though.

Look up gasket makers and see if theres one near you, I had several near me and they chuck away loads of gasket material.

I bought a few metres of statite from one place and it cost 30p a meter! but all the Econsto and Klinger stuff I got

just came from their scrap.
