Gasqet.com: Durable & Sustainable
Gasqet.com began life as a twinkle in our founders' eye. He saw the opportunity to provide the closest thing to teleporting healthcare products into hospitals at the height of the pandemic.
While building that, we stumbled upon the strength of TPU. We realised this would be a great way to solve several problems in the home. Especially in plumbing!
From this Gasqet.com was born.
As a purposeful organisation, we are really into proving that profit doesn't have to cost the earth. If you are into sustainability, you'll love Gasqet.com!
Our high performance washer and gasket technology, available with a much lower carbon footprint, travelling no more than a few miles from manufacturing to your home and where our deliveries use electric fleets or cycle couriers.
Durability & High Performance
Because Gasqet uses different polymers to traditional neoprene or nitrile. These are cheap, but are made from crude oil and go through 5 high-energy stages before it becomes a washer or gasket. Traditional gaskets also split at relatively low tensile stresses. Meaning you have to have lots of different types of washer for the same dimensions, each for different uses.
Gasqet washers remove that need. Each standard DIN washer is made from a bio-material that is durable, less complex to manufacture, is recyclable, biodegradable and has wide performance profile. The same material can be used in hydraulic systems as domestic plumbing. Outstripping traditional washer pressure seals by 40% and offering an almost 4x higher tensile strength improvement. Making it much less likely to split and lasts a lot longer. Our tests have found that the washers are likely to last a lifetime. Meaning you only need to fit them once!
"Can lasts for the lifetime of the house!"
The Planet Deserves Better
As well as manufacturing innovation, we are on the cutting edge of sustainability. Our green mission is to prove being sustainable can be better for everyone! We don't believe there is the need for any conflict between economics and climate goals. We are signatories to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and have published a charter which lets you know what we have committed to.
Where it All Began!
While working on solving the NHS PPE crisis during the pandemic, our innovation team found identified that health products emit between 3 and 10 times its weight in CO2 through manufacture, delivery and disposal. By creating medical devices using sustainable materials and making them in decentralised factories using additive manufacturing, almost all of that CO2 could be dropped to zero.
Gasqet grew out from the same team who built Automedi, the world's first decentralised healthcare manufacturing appliance.Providing a backup supply chain in the case of current and future pandemics and delivering humanitarian supplies into disconnected communities.
They saw the potential to go further. Replacing lots of home and commercial property fixtures with additive manufacturing equivalents. Especially in unseen contexts like washers. They carried out R&D and Gasqet was born.
