Gasket Sheets by Certificates

Here’s a breakdown of gasket sheet types commonly associated with specific certifications:

  1. FDA (Food and Drug Administration) Approved:

    • Silicone Sheets: Silicone gaskets are often FDA approved for use in food contact applications, making them suitable for food processing equipment and medical devices.
    • PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) Sheets: PTFE materials can be FDA approved for food contact, making them suitable for food processing applications.
  2. NSF/ANSI 61 Certified:

    • EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) Sheets: EPDM gaskets are often NSF/ANSI 61 certified for use in contact with drinking water, making them suitable for potable water systems.
    • Non-Asbestos Fiber Sheets: Certain non-asbestos fiber gasket materials may be NSF/ANSI 61 certified for use in potable water applications.
  3. WRAS (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme) Approved:

    • EPDM Sheets: EPDM gaskets are commonly WRAS approved for use in water supply systems, ensuring compliance with UK water regulations.
    • Nitrile Rubber (NBR) Sheets: Certain NBR materials may be WRAS approved for use in water applications.
  4. UL (Underwriters Laboratories) Listed:

    • Neoprene Sheets: Neoprene gaskets may be UL listed for specific applications, ensuring compliance with safety and performance standards.
    • EPDM Sheets: EPDM materials may also be UL listed for certain applications.
  5. DVGW (Deutscher Verein des Gas- und Wasserfaches) Certified:

    • EPDM Sheets: EPDM gaskets may be DVGW certified for use in gas and water applications, ensuring compliance with German standards.
  6. API (American Petroleum Institute) Certified:

    • Graphite Sheets: Graphite gaskets may be API certified for use in oil and gas applications, ensuring compliance with industry standards.
  7. TA-Luft (Technical Instructions on Air Quality Control):

    • Fluoroelastomer (FKM) Sheets: FKM gaskets may be TA-Luft certified for use in high-temperature and aggressive chemical environments, ensuring compliance with German air quality regulations.

These certifications indicate that the gasket materials have undergone testing and evaluation to ensure compliance with specific industry standards and regulatory requirements. When selecting gasket sheets, it’s essential to verify that the material holds the necessary certifications for the intended application to ensure safety, performance, and regulatory compliance.
