Gasket Sheets Comparison table

Here’s a comparison table outlining some common types of gasket sheets based on key properties and applications:

Gasket Sheet TypeMaterial CompositionTemperature RangePressure RangeChemical ResistanceApplications
Non-Asbestos Fiber SheetsSynthetic fibers, fillers, elastomersUp to 400°F (204°C)Up to 1500 psiGood resistance to oil, water, mild chemicalsGeneral-purpose sealing, automotive, marine, HVAC
Graphite SheetsExpanded graphite with or without metal reinforcementUp to 1800°F (982°C)Up to 3000 psiExcellent resistance to high temperatures, steam, aggressive chemicalsSteam, high-pressure steam, aggressive chemicals
PTFE SheetsPolytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)-450°F to 500°F (-268°C to 260°C)Up to 3000 psiExcellent resistance to chemicals, oils, extreme temperaturesChemical processing, pharmaceutical, food processing
Rubber SheetsNeoprene, EPDM, silicone, nitrile rubber-40°F to 300°F (-40°C to 149°C)Up to 500 psiGood flexibility, weather resistance, sealing performanceAutomotive, aerospace, plumbing, HVAC
Cork SheetsNatural cork granules bonded with synthetic rubberUp to 250°F (121°C)Up to 300 psiGood compressibility, resilience, resistance to oils, fuelsAutomotive, machinery, electrical equipment
Metal SheetsAluminum, copper, stainless steelUp to 1500°F (816°C)Up to 3000 psiHigh-pressure, high-temperature sealingHeat exchangers, boilers, petrochemical applications
Compressed Fiber SheetsAramid fiber, cellulose, vegetable fiberUp to 600°F (316°C)Up to 1500 psiGood mechanical strength, chemical resistanceAutomotive, marine, industrial applications

This comparison table provides a summary of key properties, temperature and pressure ranges, chemical resistance, and typical applications for each type of gasket sheet. Depending on the specific requirements of your sealing application, you can select the most suitable gasket sheet type based on factors such as temperature, pressure, media compatibility, and environmental conditions.
