There are three styles of metallic gasket, each of which combines a corrugated metal core with a compressible sealing element that is made of various materials. These gaskets provide resistance to a variety of harsh conditions including extreme temperatures, corrosive chemicals, and thermal cycling.
With a flexible graphite sealing element, the GRAPHONIC metallic gasket is resistant to chemicals and is able to endure a range of temperatures, and during thermal cycling these seals will perform effectively.
GRAPHONIC metallic gaskets are fire safe having withstood API and FITT fire tests.
The TEPHONIC Gasket features an ePTFE sealing element. Chemically inert, these gaskets will form a tight seal under low bolt loads. The gasket conforms to minor sealing surface imperfections and can withstand temperatures up to 500°F (260°C).
The G.E.T. Gasket features a graphite and ePTFE sealing element. These gaskets are rigid yet compressible and conform to minor sealing surface imperfections. They also combine fire safety with chemical resistance.
