Gasket material is used to seal joints between 2 flat surfaces. Knowing what to place between flanges or mating pieces requires understanding what demands the joint may see. The material used for your gasket must be compatible with the temperatures, pressures, and media the gasket will see. The sealing materials that will seal the widest range of applications are Flexible Graphite and Expanded PTFE.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT GASKET MATERIAL BRANDS ARE BEST?

No Branded brands are always superior.  There are plenty of bargain unbranded gasket materials out there. It never makes sense to skimp on the most vulnerable part of your equipment.

IS THERE A UNIVERSAL GASKET MATERIAL ?

The closest thing to a universal material would be Flexible Graphite, or Expanded PTFE simply because they both have a 0-14ph range.  So they are both compatible with most materials.  Sulfuric and Nucleic acids are a problem for graphite. In PTFE or Teflon, Fluorine based chemicals can be the problem.

WHAT IS THE EASIEST WAY TO KNOW WHICH GASKET MATERIAL IS BEST?

The first thing to consider is, does the manufacturer brand their product?  In today’s market, there is a lot of foreign-made inferior sheets that are usually unbranded. Most unbranded sheets were sold to the gasket cutter based on price.

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU CUT GASKETS WITH?

The method of cutting depends on the quantity being cut and the tolerances required.  Old fashion clicker presses are still the most efficient way to cut high volumes. A knife edge CNC allows us to cut without requiring the cost and delay of having a die made.  We also cut with a laser for ideal materials like PTFE.
