Rubber Gasket Types

  1. Full Face Type or Flat Face Type
  2. Raised Face Type or Flat Ring Type
  3. Customized Types (Non-Std.)

Full-Face Gaskets: The Shields of Your Flange

Imagine a knight’s full-face helmet—that’s what a Full-Face Gasket does for your flange. It covers the entire surface with cutouts for the flange bolts, creating a complete seal.  They work best with flat-face flanges but be prepared for a full disassembly for installation.

Raised Face Gaskets: Sealing Simplicity

Raised-face gaskets are like ninjas—they do the job without fanfare. Unlike their full-face counterparts, they don’t have bolt holes. Instead, they nestle between the flange bolts and around the pipe bore, typically used on raised-face flanges. A major advantage? Installation is a breeze—no complete disassembly required!

Custom Gaskets: Your Needs, Perfectly Sealed

At ASP, we understand that a one-size-fits-all approach rarely works. That’s why we offer a wide range of customized gaskets.  Imagine superheroes with custom suits – our gaskets are designed for your specific size, shape, and thickness needs. Made from top-notch raw materials, these customized warriors are built for durability, high performance, and minimal maintenance, making them ideal for demanding industrial applications.

Selection Criteria 

Choosing the appropriate rubber gasket for a particular application demands thoughtful evaluation of multiple elements. The selection of gasket material is pivotal in guaranteeing a dependable and leak-resistant seal. Since each application presents its distinct needs, aligning the gasket material with these specifications is vital for peak performance and extended lifespan. Selecting the right rubber gasket is crucial for optimal performance. Delve into detailed technical specifications to ensure you get the perfect fit, and check its: 

  • Material Composition:  Understanding the gasket’s material composition is paramount. It dictates the gasket’s inherent properties, such as flexibility, durability, and resistance to specific substances. 
  • Temperature Resistance:  It’s vital to know the gasket’s temperature resistance. This ensures the gasket remains effective and doesn’t degrade or fail under varying temperatures, whether extreme heat or cold. 
  • Pressure Ratings: Each gasket has its defined pressure tolerance. Recognizing these ratings ensures the gasket can withstand the pressures within its intended application, preventing potential leaks or damages. 
  • Chemical Compatibility: It’s important to know how a gasket interacts with different chemicals to avoid any negative reactions. This helps keep the gasket in good shape and ensures it seals perfectly. 
  • Thickness and Dimensions: The thickness and dimensions of a gasket directly influence its sealing capability. Ensuring the gasket’s size matches the application’s requirements guarantees a secure and effective seal.
