Optimum filler density of Spiral wound gasket

Spiral wound gaskets and optimum filler density

Ensuring optimum filler density across spiral wound gaskets, and in particular, the windings is what is classed as controlled density. The reason why this is so important? It is what is required when achieving consistent compression levels and perfect sealability.  Controlled density is also a process that makes it possible to achieve the perfect filler density, making seals last… Continue reading Spiral wound gaskets and optimum filler density

Colours on Spiral Wound Gasket

Does colour matter? When it comes to choosing the correct gasket for your application, colour, and different colour gaskets can play an important role in the decision-making process. Using a strategic colour coding system, the selection, as well as the categorisation of gaskets, is now much more accessible. You can now know in an instant, all through colour coding, just what filler and winding… Continue reading Colours on Spiral Wound Gasket
