Keith Payne's history in gasket manufacture mean we work with both cutting edge and traditional materials and processes. Leather gaskets are one of the older gasket materials that we have an expertise in manufacturing. Leather is still requested and used for washers. Leather is tanned hides of cattle, which once tanned and treated gives a robust and deformable material. Leather should be treated with neat foot oil to preserve its lifespan and suppleness.
Leather washers and cup washers are made for priming pumps to any size. Chrome leather is also supplied. Nip washers for fishing rods and even places for board games such as monopoly have been cut from coloured leather.
