Performance and use of metal coated gaskets

Dec 17, 2018

As a composite gasket, metal coated gaskets have dual properties. It has the characteristics of high strength, high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance and certain toughness of metal gaskets; at the same time, it has the characteristics of good compressibility and high resilience of non-metallic materials. In addition, the gasket is also very good in integrity, whether it is made of a gasket with a diameter of up to 5 meters, or a small gasket with a diameter of only 0.15 meters, it can maintain good integrity, not It is prone to breakage.

In actual use, metal-clad gaskets are mainly used in heat exchangers, flange seals, pipes, valve seals, etc. Due to their versatility in industrial production, such gaskets have a relatively high market share for a long time. However, with the advent of other types of gaskets, the sales of this product in the market has declined. After the technical improvement, the performance of such products has been significantly improved, so its market share is now steadily increasing.
