A gasket is a type of sealing that fills the space between mating surfaces, normally made in soft flat material - such as rubber(EPDM,FKM,Neoprene,NR,NBR....), silicone or plastic polymer material,generally used to prevent leakage from or into the joined objects while under compression or pressure. Gaskets fill irregularities between less-than-perfect mating surfaces on machine parts.
Gaskets are widely used and applied in many industries.You can find gaskets in many places, such as cars, boats, concrete trucks, plumbing, food processors,plum,valve etc.
At BRP, we make gaskets primarily from rubber and silicone. Silicone is a good option for gaskets because of its outstanding characters: resistance to high heat, weather, oxidation, sunlight , excellent flexibility , low compression set, good electrical insulation .
Here is one of our gasket- Tyton seat gasket,DN300,the material selected is EPDM, it consists of a combination of 55IRHD(International Rubber Hardness Degree),is designed for optimum sealing function and long term elasticity(sealing part)
