Some area in the industry require different type , shape , and material to meet the harsh environment. In gasket production, the quantity, tolerances, shape, size, and budget from our client will be taking into account before we request our manufacturer to select the best equipment to produce a perfect product. TUSB had been supplying different type of gasket for the industry. As an example, we have been an integral provider of complex composite parts and kitting for large wind turbines. Table below show some custom gasket materials and its description.
|Rubber||Rubber is one of the most popular gasket materials, because of its low price, functionality and cutting ease. Rubber is extremely resilient and holds up well under pressure, and is excellent for creating water- or gas-tight seals. Unfortunately, it is not well suited for corrosive chemicals.|
|Cork||Cork is still widely used in gaskets. It has similar elastic properties to rubber, but is more resistant to corrosive materials. On the other hand, it is more permeable than rubber and not always the best choice for containment|
|Neoprene||Neoprene is more expensive, but an excellent choice when dealing with solvents or weak-to-moderate acids or bases, along with solvents or fuels. Therefore, it is most preferable in the oil and gas industry.|
|Silicone||Silicone is a popular choice when dealing with many different liquids. It also has good temperature resistance, as well as being unaffected by either sunlight or ozone. However, it cannot handle hydrocarbons or steam well.|
|C4401||C4401 it is an approved and proven replacement for Asbestos. It is a competitively priced, synthetic compressed sheet with a binder that prevents airborne dust. It is this dust, asbestos dust, that is so dangerous, and why asbestos is no longer used for gasket applications.|
