  • Purpose: Gaskets serve the critical function of creating a tight seal between mating surfaces, preventing the escape of fluids or gases and maintaining system integrity.
  • Material Composition: Gaskets are fabricated from various materials including rubber, silicone, metal, cork, paper, or composite materials. The material selection depends on factors such as temperature, pressure, chemical compatibility, and resilience requirements.
  • Types: Gaskets come in different types and designs suited for various applications, such as flat gaskets, spiral wound gaskets, ring gaskets, and more. Each type has specific characteristics suited to different sealing requirements.
  • Applications: Widely used across industries including automotive, aerospace, plumbing, and manufacturing, gaskets find applications in engines, pumps, compressors, piping systems, and various mechanical assemblies.
  • Installation: During assembly, gaskets are placed between mating surfaces. Proper surface preparation and torqueing of fasteners are crucial to ensure a secure seal and prevent leaks.
