Gaskets Blog

We are the leading industry source for educational information on gasketing products. We influence, support, harmonize and develop gasket standards. This is accomplished through collaboration with national and international standards bodies and in partnership with customers. The division serves as a forum for the exchange of technical information and the development of consensus actions on the issues that are recognized as of common interest and benefit to the member companies and their customers.

Gasket Characteristics at Subambient Temperatures

For gaskets to be effective in their application, the designer of a bolted flanged joint (BFJ) must select a gasket with the appropriate mechanical properties for the application. In any case, the mechanical behavior of the gasket must be known and well understood. Industry testing standards exist to detail these mechanical behavior characteristics at ambient temperature and elevated temperatures that are representative of the temperature conditions the gasket may expect to encounter in service.
