Are Graphite Gaskets and Seals The Best Choice For Your Requirement?

Are Graphite Gaskets The Best Choice For Your Requirement?




High temperatures challenge many gasket materials. To talk of a few, nitrile gaskets will go up to about 95 degreeC, silicone gaskets to 200 degreeC and PTFE to 260 degreeC,. Then comes taking metal gaskets into consideration.

Graphite seals and gaskets retain their properties at temperatures as high as 450 degreeC, serve as great sealing material because of other characteristics like - 

Resistance to high and low temperatures across a wide temperature range
Corrosion resistance at most temperatures and pressures
Exceptional mechanical strength
Excellent resiliency
High compressibility
Low creep under temperature or pressure
Unlimited storage life
low thermal expansion and good electrical conductivity
graphite gaskets can resist pH changes. This is especially important for chemical processes or reactions that involve the addition of acids and bases.

Unlike other types of gasket materials, graphite’s mechanical properties increase with temperature. In multi-layer components, graphite can be sandwiched together with other gasketing materials (such as foils) to create custom sealing and insulation solutions. Graphite is also flexible and can be produced without fillers or binders that can limit sealing performance in demanding applications.
