Here at 3D Pattern and Mould Makers LTD, we work with clients who are producing cast stone and precast elements of all shapes and sizes. Our timber moulds are one of the most requested services. They provide an essential solution to both small and large-scale construction. As part of our service, we have the option to add rubber gaskets during construction to prevent grout loss. In this blog, we will discuss how this can benefit your project, both visually and financially.

What Is a Gasket?

Our rubber gaskets are fitted seals. They are used to prevent leaks between different sections and different substrates. For the purpose of our timber moulds, they are an ideal way to prevent grout loss. We use them during construction, as a means to ensure that your timber mould is of the highest quality and suited to its target job.

When placed into a timber mould, they work to prevent any of the wetcast mix escaping. Where a side is offered up against a base, although this will be bolted, a gasket is always the best policy for ensuring against grout loss, this happens when the mix escapes, the results are often staining of the finished unit or exposing of aggregate post cast.

Benefits of Rubber Gaskets

  • Providing a secure seal reduces the risk of grout loss.
  • Flexible enough to work with any finished mould, no matter the dimensions or design.
  • Can also be fitted into GRP moulds.
  • Does not cause damage to the mould.
