Flange Gasket materials – What you need to know

Getting the most out of flange gasket materials and ensuring the performance of the gasket is not affected when you come to use it, means several things must be taken into consideration.  For example, factors such as their design, how they’re manufactured,...

Spiral Wound Gaskets and Sheet Gaskets

Gaskets come in a range of different shapes and sizes.  All are offering similar functionality; gaskets are produced using a range of different materials to suit a range and a variety of environmental factors, industrial uses, and product requirements.  When it...

Benefits of Kammprofile Gaskets

Used to prevent leakage, gaskets are constructed to fit between a range of different sizes and types of surfaces in order to provide the perfect seal.  Typically used in pipes and heat exchangers, gaskets are widely used as industrial sealants. ...

Purpose of a Kammprofile Gasket

The ultimate purpose of a gasket is to stop leaks while being able to deal with varying levels of compression.  When it comes to Kammprofile gaskets, these are ideal for standard pipeline and heat exchanger applications.  As due to their grooved metalcore, with a...

Are your gaskets completely compliant?

In industries where gaskets are not just important but essential, there are numerous challenges to be faced and considerations to take on board.  This is especially true when it comes to making sure this “essential” element is also compliant.  With the...

Everything you need to know about Manway Gaskets

When it comes to manway gaskets, we want to keep things simple, introducing them as the small sealing ring found in hatches/openings that are constructed for large tanks. Openings which give people access to the inside of the aforementioned tanks and vessels. The...

Why Colour Matters When Choosing Gaskets?

Gasket manufacturers have turned to colour coding gaskets to make the selection and categorisation of the product more accessible.   It is possible to identify the winding and filler materials that were used for fabrication by the colouring of the outer top side...

Choosing the Perfect Gasket for Your Needs

The perfect gasket choice and fit is an essential component of engines, appliances, and industrial machinery projects. They are a fundamental part when engineering anything from power tools to oil drills. A high-quality manufacturer of gaskets and seals will use...

How Do You Recognise a Quality Gasket?

A gasket is a very simple item that is reasonably inexpensive. Considering how gaskets work, you may be facing a costly bill should a gasket fail. Choosing a quality gasket from Specialist Sealing Products helps to create a seal that will last until well after the...

5 Common Gasket Failures

Common Failure Causes  A blown head gasket in a vehicle is something that needs to be fixed promptly. If left untouched, you run the risk of seriously damaging your engine. Knowing what causes gasket failure or gasket problems is the key to gasket failure...

Mica Gaskets and Sheeting Materials

Mica is a very high temperature (1000⁰C) gasket sheeting material able to withstand such temperatures even in the presence of Oxygen. It can be produced in tape, strip and roll form, suitable for using in the manufacture of Spiral Wound and Kammprofile gaskets and also in braided form for applications requiring a gland compression packing. As a sheeting product there are predominantly three main variants, one as a plain Mica product, one with a flat stainless steel core for extra rigidity and strength, and one having a stainless steel tanged reinforcement for even greater stability and strength, especially when being used on narrow width flanges. These products can be used in a wide range of applications including Diesel engines and exhaust manifolds, turbines and turbochargers, oil pan and heat shield.

This group of materials exhibit low weight loss at high temperatures and provide high integrity seals having been specially developed to be used in the most demanding sealing applications with a temperature range from cryogenic to +1000⁰C using mica, a mineral fibre with exceptional physical and chemical resistance properties. Thanks to their chemical formulation this group of materials are oxidation free and can be used in critical applications where other materials suffer from rapid thermal degradation which then they fail to ensure the required resistance, durability and reliability. 

  • Temperature range from cryogenic to +1000⁰C 
  • API 607 Fire Safe Test 
  • Excellent chemical resistance 
  • For use in corrosive environments 
  • Free from oxidation 
  • Can be used in critical applications where other materials may fail
