Gasket materials

Solid Metal Gaskets – used for flanges of ASME B16.5, ASME B16.47, and API Specification 6A

Hollow Metal Gaskets – used for mechanical seals with a max temperature of cryogenic to 1000°C

Corrugated Metal Gaskets – used for valves, pumps, flanges, heat exchangers, and vessels.

Semi-Metallic Gaskets – used for flanges of ASME B16.5, B16.47, B16.20 and for boilers, autoclaves, gas mains, pumps, and valve bonnets

What is the Main Materials of Gasket for Valves

Non-Metallic – made of rubber, graphite, PTFE, and more, they are used for a wide range of applications

Liquid Gaskets – These compounds are applied to create a seal and usually are comprised of silicon that can withstand temperatures of -59°C to 329°C

Media and Pressure – Certain materials in gaskets may not work in conjunction with different types of media. Likewise, some types of gaskets may not be able to maintain their integrity in high or low pressure applications.
