Know-how makes the difference

Gaskets and packings appear to be one of the simplest sealing components. However, the impact of poor quality, incorrect selection or installation is only realised when your installation begins to leak or worse: fails prematurely and results in mounting repair costs. Prevent this and make an investment in knowledge. As Europe’s leading provider of sealing solutions, ERIKS’ unique mix of technical know-how, an all encompassing product range and specialist services help our customers achieve reliable safe productivity.

The ERIKS engineers and product specialists cooperate intensively with maintenance specialists and mechanical engineers in the industry. This gives us profound knowledge of the products and their applications and enables us to help our customers to resolve the technical challenges on site. Our market know–how also allows us to develop new customized solutions and techniques with our key manufacturing partners for improved sealing and therewith creating cost savings for our customers.


ERIKS specialists are always on hand to advice the most appropriate material, shape, gasket and flange housing, applying knowledge gathered over many years from a broad range of industries. We want to make sure you have the right gasket or packing warranting the safety of your company and employees.

Our range of products consists of many gaskets and packings fit for use under the often extreme conditions found in chemical applications such as aggressive media, high temperatures and relatively fragile flanges that require gaskets that seal with low surface pressure.
