A gasket is a piece of material used to create a seal between two flanges, that while under compression is resistant to the flow of gas or liquids. Under sufficient pressure the gasket fills the imperfections of the mating surfaces to be sealed.
When choosing a gasket material it is important that you consider the following:
- Chemical Compatibility
- Heat Resistance
- Creep Relaxation
- Erosion Resistance
- Compressive Strength
- Tensile Strength
- Shim Strength
- Dimensional Stability
