Frequently Asked Questions

What style Allpax gasket cutter is best for my application (extension or rotary style)?

Allpax extension style gasket cutters are ideal for applications that demand portability. The modular & lightweight design of these Allpax gasket cutters makes them suitable for gasket fabrication on site. These extension style gasket cutters are used for cutting non metallic & non rigid gasket materials. On the other hand, rotary style gasket cutters are heavy tools. As these gasket cutters are meant to be bolted to a workbench (Model SM4) or clamped in an upright position (M3 Model), they are suitable for fixed locations like shops & factories. Allpax gasket cutters (rotary style) are meant for cutting metallic or rigid gasket materials including irregular shape gaskets.

How do Allpax extension style gasket cutters work?

These gasket cutters feature modular extension bars, a cutter block and an adjustable cutting blade. The user should first pierce a hole in the gasket material centre that needs to be cut, followed by laying the gasket material flat on the cutting board. A centre pin should be poked through the hole and inserted into a ferrule in the board. The user should then set the blade to the needed depth of cut. Adjust the desired outer diameter setting by loosening the knurled nut. Place the extension tail onto the pin and grip the block with hands. Apply downward pressure & sweep a circular pattern along the circumference of the gasket material. The user should remove the excess material and lastly, adjust the inner diameter setting and cut the gasket material. Remove the finished gasket in the end.

What is the use of a gasket sealant?

Gasket sealant is used to make gasket material more robust by increasing the chemical / water resistance and adhesion.
