Sealability-Its Role in Gasket Evaluation 850190

In years past, the principal properties of gasketing were tensile, compressibility and recovery. Today, after extensive testing on all properties for gasketing there has arisen a greater demand for improved seal-ability. Improvements in gasketing properties, other than sealability, has not lead to greater benefits to the “End-User” to meet the challenge of reducing emissions and manufacturing costs. Systematic sealability testing with identifiable variables can give a sound basis for classifying functionality of gasket materials.
