Gaskets

When it comes to cutting gaskets there are several ways to get the job done. Traditional "clicker presses" are great for larger quantity jobs and have been the standard in the industry for years. The biggest down side to using clicker presses is tooling must be made to produce a gasket. Just as CNC lathes revolutionized the machining industry, laser cutters, routers and water jet are all computer controled ways of cutting a gasket with out the need for tooling or dies.

Laser Gasket Cutting

 

Specialized sealing products like Grafoil® flexible graphite, FKM, Ameri-lon®, Kalrez®, Chemrez®, and more common materials for cut gaskets like: PTFE, filled PTFE, FKM, Viton®, silicone, rubber, buna, EPDM, cork, fish paper, vegetable fiber, and non-asbestos

Cut Gaskets 

Fills the space between two objects, generally to prevent leakage between the two objects while under compression. Cut Gaskets saves money by allowing less precise mating surfaces on machine parts which can use Cut Gaskets to fill irregularities. Gaskets are commonly produced by cutting from sheet Cut Gaskets, such as gasket paper (beater addition), Non-asbestos, Rubber, EPDM, Nitrile, Buna, Neoprene, Flexible Graphite, Grafoil®, Aflas, Kalrez®, Viton®, Silicone, Metal, Mica, Felt or a plastic polymer such as (PTFE), Peek, Urethane, or Ethylene Propylene (EP). Although we have never offered asbestos, In the past, the Cut Gaskets selected for specific applications may contain have contained asbestos.

It is usually desirable that the gaskets be made from a material that is compressible so that it tightly fills the space it is designed for, including any slight irregularities. The most common misconception when selecting a cut Gaskets thickness is to choose a cut gaskets that is too thick. The thicker the material the more likely the material being contained can weep through the pores of the cut gaskets itself. This is a greater issue with some materials than others.  A rule of thumb is to have the material thick enough to compensate for any surface face irregularities and to permit some compression. 

Over compression of Cut Gaskets is a common problem with metal gaskets which have mechanically designed recovery built into the gasket.  Over compression removes the Cut Gaskets ability to recover. This is also true of expanded PTFE, once over compressed it will have no recovery and therefore will not longer adapt to maintain a seal.  The common strategy of "The more compressive load exerted on the gasket, the longer it will last" is generally true of elastomeric materials since elastomers (rubbers) are not compressible but deflect compression.  Many materials such as non-asbestos compressed Cut Gasketss and beater addition (ie; Armstrong) materials contain elastomers in the mix of material they are produced from, making them difficult to over compress.

One of the more desirable properties of an effective Cut Gaskets in industrial applications is the ability to withstand high compressive loads. Most industrial gasket applications involve bolts exerting compression well into the 14 MPa (2000 psi) range or higher. This is why Non-asbestos Cut Gaskets are so widely used in industrial Cut Gaskets applications.

American Seal & Packing Cuts Gaskets of all types, Including: PTFE, compressed non-asbestos, vegetable fiber, beater add, cork, and various rubbers - Nitrile, Buna-N, SBR, EPDM, Viton®, FKM, Hypalon, Aflas®, natural rubber, closed cell, open cell, Neoprene, GRAFOIL® Flexible Graphite and other "soft goods". Gaskets can be cut based on your drawing or sample of the gasket you desire. Basic I.D x O.D shapes can be cut by hand or our laser. Name brands we can provide include; Armstrong, Garlock®, Donex, DX Seal, Klinger, Johns Manville, Detroit, Utex and GRAFOIL® Flexible Graphite among other gasket styles. So, if you want a cut gasket we can help.
