Our History

Burnetts History

Burnetts was founded in 1967 in Northampton, UK by Mr John Burnett.

Back then we specialised in compression moulding rubber seals and gaskets and used our expertise to formulate compounds for specific applications and environments.

Our intumescent rubber compound was developed for use in hazardous environments where transit seals minimise the risk of fire spreading through bulkhead apertures. These products remain in use today as changes in health & safety legislation has broadened the range of applications around the world.

This is only one of many compound formulations we have developed for specific applications, and we continue to offer our customers bespoke solutions that meet stringent performance criteria.
