After choosing the right type of gasket sheet suitable for your application, this is processed by stamping or cutting, thus obtaining the desired flat gasket. When choosing the right material, one must take into consideration the working temperature (peak and under continuous operation temperature), pressure, working environment and other critical conditions specific to the application.
Flat gaskets are manufactured according to internal/ international standards or by respecting customer’s internal standards. It is also possible to be manufactured metal jacketed on the inside and/or outside with stainless steel ring.
Main standards for flat gaskets:
- ASME B16.21
- EN 1514-1
- EN 12560-1
Flat gaskets can be manufactured not only from soft material, but also from metals, such as: carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, etc.
