Solid Gasket is a composite gasket which utilizes a metal core with a soft facing material. The solid metal core is a machined which provides low pressure areas, ensuring that the soft coating flows into any imperfections in the flange even at relatively bolt loads. The soft facing material is engineered to compress in to the surface on the core and form a thin film across thesur face creating the ideal sealing.
Expanded graphite is the most common facing material used for Solid gaskets.
Economical alternative to Camprofile gaskets for lower pressure,lower criticality applications
Medium pressure gasket with a wide seating stress range
Excellent tightness at low boltloads
