Which Gasket Materials Should you be Using?

Gaskets are used to create a pressure-tight seam between components. The compression seal is what prevents unwanted leaks. Gaskets are designed for pressure resistance and drastic temperature changes. Because gaskets use compression, it is important that the materials used be both pliable and resiliant.

Gasket specifications vary greatly and are formed from a wide variety of materials including, metal, plastic, rubber, composite, graphite, teflon, etc. Some gaskets combine materials to create the right specifications for needs.

Knowing which product to select is extremely important, this is why our team has gone through rigorous training programs to understand which materials are better for which applications.
