Exhaust Gaskets Manufacturing Experts

Exhaust gaskets, in particular head gaskets, are typically constructed from robust and reliable materials such as steel or copper. These materials are much more dependable than the composite materials of asbestos or graphite that were traditionally used in older technology, which had a tendency to fail over time due to blow-outs.


The head gasket is an essential component of the joint between an engine block and a cylinder head and must be capable of withstanding extreme temperatures and pressures without failing.


At WC Munsch & Co, we are proud to provide quality made gaskets for exhaust systems across the UK and beyond. Our experienced team has over 50 years of experience in both designing and manufacturing gaskets for exhausts, ensuring that each gasket meets the highest standards of excellence.


We offer a wide range of sizes and gauges and can also provide customers with bespoke gaskets if required. With unbeatable customer service, expert advice and fast delivery times, you can rely on us for all your needs when it comes to exhaust gaskets.

Here is a list of our exhaust gaskets of different grades and sealing applications. Click on the links below to download a data sheet on the different grades.

Eyelet gaskets offer protection against blowout. In addition to our range of PTFE envelope gaskets, we offer a range of metal eyelet and envelope gaskets in materials such as stainless steel, soft iron, copper, brass, Monel and titanium. Please contact us with your requirement.

Spiral wound gaskets are widely used in many industries to seal a vast array of media across a wide range of temperatures and pressures. The key to the gaskets versatility is the inherently resilient sealing element.

There are a wide variety of corrugated metal gaskets which are used as a versatile seal when bolt loads are low. The are comprised of concentric grooves on both sides and can be coated with other materials to make a seal on distorted or uneven faces. 

We stock a range of gaskets from leading worldwide manufacturers.

Camprofile/Kammprofile gaskets are used in many older seals since they have both a flexible nature and reliable performance. Camprofiles work by having a solid corrugated core with a flexible covering layer.

We stock a wide range of Garlock and Flexitallic Kammprofile gaskets.

The most basic type of semi-metallic gasket has a compressible insert enclosed within a metallic jacket. The insert material forces the metal to deform to suit the flange surface and effect a seal.

Copper Washer

Machined Rings/Washers

From a simple laser cut copper or stainless steel washer to a more complex CNC machined ring, we offer a wide range of solutions in materials ranging from mild steel to high temperature Inconel and Hastelloy. Please contact us with your requirement.

Our Bonded Seals (or Dowty Seals) consist of a rubber sealing element that is bonded to the inner wall of a metal washer. They are commonly used in applications where high pressures demand greater sealing capacity than can be obtained with Copper  or other metallic washers.

Metal Shim Sets

We manufacture metal shims in a wide range of materials and thicknesses, with parts offered as thin as 0.05mm (0.002 ”). If you require individual shims or as a shim set comprising of different thicknesses, we can supply. Shims can be manufactured to your drawing or specified dimensions.

Exhaust Gaskets FAQs

Exhaust gaskets are designed to provide a tight seal, which prevents exhaust gases from leaking and reduces noise levels. Additionally, they can provide added strength to an exhaust system, help protect against abrasion damage and keep engine temperatures in check.

Depending on the vehicle, it is recommended that an exhaust gasket be replaced every 50,000-100,000 miles or every other oil change for optimal performance.

Exhaust gaskets can be made from a variety of materials including rubber, metal and multi-layered steel composites depending on the application.

Driving with a damaged or worn out exhaust gasket can cause harmful fumes to enter the passenger compartment and can also lead to further damage if left unchecked. It’s best to replace your gasket as soon as possible for safety reasons.

Yes! Different vehicles require specific types of exhaust gaskets depending on their design and function requirements such as flat versus molded seals and stainless steel versus graphite seals.

With the right tools and knowledge, installing an exhaust gasket yourself is achievable but may require advanced automotive repair experience for a proper installation. If you’re uncertain about your skillset it’s best to leave this job to a professional mechanic for better results.
