Harsh environments, unknown use cases, demanding timelines-PGC solves the toughest parts development and supply challenges.
Precision Gasket Company delivers innovative manufacturing solutions that meet the performance and quality demands of our regional, national, and global customers. It's something we've been doing now for over 60 years.
We're more than just seals and gaskets. Our solutions also encompass the areas of EMI and RFI shielding, thermal interface, sound and vibration control, and pressure sensitive adhesives.
At PGC, it's not just about what we make; it's also about what we can make. We develop dedicated partnerships with our customers that result in win/win outcomes. Our track record of innovation in product technology, lean manufacturing efficiency, and business processes have led to successful product developments for some of the biggest names in the medical device, lawn and garden, construction, electronics, defense, and automotive industries.
When you partner with PGC, you align with a proactive participant where we've created our own definition of value:
VALUE = FUNCTION / COST
This formula focuses on where you've been with a project, where you're at now, and where you could possibly take the project, using our signature 4D process:
DISCOVER // DIAGNOSE // DESIGN // DELIVER
Whatever challenges you face with design, cost, reliability, or manufacturability, PGC strives to resolve these challenges and turn your product vision into reality.

Deflect. Damp. Absorb.
Sound and vibration control is a challenge when you're facing compliance, safety issues and more importantly-competitive product objectives.
The specialists at PGC help you overcome these challenges by identifying the transmission path and treating it with material science and technology. We help you compete in the marketplace with:
- Extensive knowledge of regulatory compliance across the globe
- Smart analytics into pressure level, sound power, transfer path, noise source ranking and more
- A proven process to achieve the best balance between performance and cost
- Dedicated engineers, total quality assurance, certified LEAN production process and ISO 9000 certification
Noise is unwanted sound
The unwanted effects of moving parts and noisy equipment from harsh conditions or extreme environments can add to a product's self-generated noise and vibration-- making a carefully engineered solution mandatory.
Seal. Fill. Contain.
Seals and gaskets fill the gap between two objects to prevent leakage while under compression. PGC offers a wide variety of gasket and sealing technology to ensure tight closure and protection.
Gaskets and seals help save money by allowing less precise mating surface machining. They're inexpensive, unless they fail. That's why PGC helps develop your knowledge so you end up with the best possible solution for your unique application.
It's technology not taught in schools-the reason the PGC Development Center offers technical seminars on Seals & Gaskets. It's a valuable place to learn, discover and discuss innovative solutions to reduce costs and improve long term performance for your project.
Gaskets are critical elements for all
applications in a wide range of industries:
- Mechanical Seals
- Engineered Rubber
- Electrically Conductive Gaskets
- Exhaust Manifold Gaskets
- Radial Lip Seals
- Flange Gaskets
- Connector Gaskets
- Take Down/Connector gaskets
- High conformability gaskets
- Filtration gaskets
- Electronic protection gaskets
- Rubber gaskets
Sustaining Product Performance
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) are disturbances that affect an electrical circuit. The disturbance may degrade the effective performance of the circuit.
Protecting susceptible circuits and cables from unwanted electrical and thermal energy is a PGC specialty. Our engineers develop custom components that stop radiated and conducted energy emissions, in both EMI/RFI and thermal forms.

Adhere. Seal. Stabilize--with Sticky Strength
If you're looking to cut costs, increase production and simplify your assembly process, pressure sensitive adhesives (PSAs) can maximize your application success. PSAs are aggressive, tacky substances that adhere with pressure, exert a strong holding force and strengthen your competitive advantage in the marketplace.
PSAs allow you to:
- Reduce stress points
- Reduce assembly time
- Distribute forces across wider surfaces
- Achieve miniaturization
- Enhance appearance
- Improve process and performance
From rubber and acrylic to silicone, PSAs carry different performance characteristics based on:
- Duty cycle-the level of use and demand
At PGC we don't just help you choose the right adhesive; we capture the complexity of your vision
We assess your situation and find the best balance between cost and performance. Your complex application needs a highly engineered supplier to help you innovate, maintain momentum-and keep you in the forefront.
