In the 1890’s, a professor of chemistry at Amherst College discovered that certain paper, when impregnated with a solution of glue and glycerin, was transformed into a crackle parchment-like material that was waterproof, oil proof and greaseproof. Because of it’s parchment-like quality, the material was called “Vellumoid” (meaning “like vellum or parchment”). Since our humble beginnings, Vellumoid Incorporated has become a major producer of gaskets for light duty, heavy duty and miscellaneous sealing applications. For many years, engine equipment manufacturers have come to Vellumoid for gasketing technology. Today, Vellumoid’s soft gasket expertise spans virtually all vehicles and engine-driven equipment. Decades of experience and dedication, our broad distribution capability, and extensive converting expertise provide our customers with the gasket leadership that will serve them now and into the future.
