Due to the critical function gaskets serve, it is vital to select the right material for your application and environment. Furthermore, the material of a gasket significantly influences how it performs in the intended application.


The factors that influence the material type

As mentioned, selecting the right gasket material for your application is key and there are several factors to consider to identify the appropriate material. These key factors are:

  • Temperature Range

    What is the temperature range it will operate in?

  • Application Pressure

    What level of pressure will it need to withstand?

  • Media Compatability

    Is the material it will be exposed to abrasive or corrosive?

  • UV/ozone exposure

    Will it be exposed to UV radiation and ozone?

  • Quality Standards

    Does it need to meet any product or industry standards?
