What is a gasket used for?
A gasket is a type of component that is used to fill a space between two surfaces inside a device or project. When two solid surfaces join together –for example in two pieces of a pipe – the seal between the two separate parts is never going to join perfectly, which means there is always room for leakage or seepage of gas or liquid. If gas or liquid does manage to get inside a different compartment of the device, it could jeopardise the performance of the other components and lead to damage or a health and safety risk. It is important to take steps to ensure this does not happen, which is why a gasket is used. If a gasket is placed in the gap, you are minimising the risk of anything being able to escape or get into the compartment.
Rubber gaskets and seals at Stephens Gaskets
Rubber gaskets and seals are a popular choice of gasket component due to the material being able to offer a wide range of benefits. Rubber gaskets are incredibly versatile and offer fantastic resistance to extreme temperatures – making them ideal for use in many different extreme environments. Using a rubber gasket seal also means your project will benefit from its exceptional tensile strength, tear strength and compression, making it one of the most reliable and durable gasket materials around. In addition to temperature resistance, a rubber gasket offers insulation from electricity, and is waterproof too, extending its list of applications which it can be used in.
