Gasket Sealants

Fortunately, no one gasket suits a range of applications, but rather we have a multitude of gasket sealants available to meet various specifications and requirements.  Ultimately, sealants are used to effectively ensure gasket seals.  Helping to extend a gasket's life...

Types of industrial gasket material

Different industry sectors will use different types of gaskets and different types of gasket materials.   And of course!  Different industrial gasket materials will be much better suited to some industrial processes and applications compared to others.  As different...

Keeping a close eye on the gaskets your applications use

Gaskets are vital elements to any piping system and application that requires creating the perfect seal in order to prevent leaks.  This is the main role of a gasket, to provide a good seal, with some gasket materials sealing better than others in certain...

O Ring Colour Identification

O rings come in various colours, and it's important to understand what these colours indicate as the o rings you choose will affect your overall process application.  Ultimately, different o ring colours are used to help differentiate between different materials. ...

Spiral Wound Gasket Compressibility and Pressure Ratings

In order to form a reliable seal, spiral wound gaskets do require a certain degree of pressure.   The applied pressure allows the gasket to be compressed tightly between the mating surfaces preventing any leaks from occurring.  Factors such as operating temperature...

Elastomeric Compounds

What is elastomer?  Elastomeric compounds are rubber seals produced using natural rubbers or manufactured by the chemicals industry.  Elastomeric sealing compounds consist of between 50-60% rubber; the remainder of the compound consists of fillers,...

Is there such a thing as the right flange gasket?

We cannot stress enough how important gaskets and seals can be. Gaskets are vital for an application's reliability and integrity, and trust us when we say, choosing the right gasket now can help you avoid costly issues in the future.  Taking a closer look at pipe...

Plastic gaskets, the best alternative to metal

Plastic gaskets and seals are not that uncommon.  In fact, they’re used in many devices due to the longevity and functionality they offer.  Helping to prevent leaks and maintain temperature control, plastic gaskets help equipment and appliances operate to the best of...

Protecting your seals

Dust gets everywhere.  We see it across the surfaces of our homes and even in our workplaces, especially when the light shines through to show it in its full glory!  However, dust that seeps and builds up within engineering equipment can be disastrous.  Causing damage...

Importance of durometer testing

Durometer or shore durometer is a way for industry professionals to measure how hard such things as plastic, rubber, and non-metallic materials genuinely are.  Its focus is to measure on a Shore A or Shore D scale, looking at how robust material is when examining its...

What are the Functions of Gasket?

Gasket FunctionsThe gasket is used in all sorts of industries on the virtue of its high functionality and unique characteristics. Most of the times, you came in direct contact with the gasket, but you may have not aware of it. You may have been using several types of equipment in your everyday life that depend upon the gasket, but you still didn’t touch it directly. So to know gasket very well, you have to make yourself well aware of its functionality. Go through following points to identify the different kinds of functions of a gasket.

A gasket is a type of seal that is used to fill the gap between two surfaces, primarily to avoid leakages. So gasket helps to join the gap between components of machines thereby reducing the unnecessary friction. This functionality of gasket makes equipment quite safe to use as it prevents big machines from wear down. In short, it helps to increase the life of components as they don’t need to go through any maintenance.

Though stock gaskets are the ones that you will commonly find in the market, custom gaskets are the ones that are more useful in different circumstances. They are very handy when a particular machine is designed or being used for a specific business purpose. The measurement of custom gaskets and their shape is precisely intended to make it ideal for a particular component. People who work in the manufacturing industry are the ones who are more in touch with the custom gaskets. There are several companies available in the market that provide custom gaskets according to your project requirement.

Gaskets are differentiated according to their unique properties and type of materials used in manufacturing them. The common forms of gaskets are O-ring gaskets, rubber gaskets, cork gaskets, flange gaskets, inner bolt etc. Some other forms of gasket include UV resistant gaskets, weather resistant gaskets, flame retardant gaskets, temperature resistant gaskets, soft gaskets, hydrophobic rubber gaskets, submerged gaskets, environmental gaskets and much more. The selection of right gasket can be made according to its manufacturing material and the industry where it is going to be used. Choosing a perfect gasket is not a tough task if you know its properties very well.

Mounting, anti-vibration and sealing are few more useful forms of gaskets that are employed in industries. Most of the sealing gaskets are made from rubber as it offers a perfect way for water blockage. Anti-vibration gaskets used to prevent unnecessary vibration thereby reducing the energy wastage. Environmental gaskets play a vital role to avoid dirt and dust particles entering into the components. They are extremely handy in heavy industrial applications.

Industries often search for the efficient components that will help them to save both money and time. When efficiency is increased the business profit rises and a gasket is one such a thing that adds real value to the industry, courtesy of its various functions. The notable thing about the gaskets is that they are available in several shapes and sizes that make them one of the highly flexible components to be used in any industry.
