A GUIDE TO MATERIAL SELECTION: Current non-metallic gasket materials encompass a broad spectrum. Also, new types of materials continue to appear in the market and it would be impractical to list and describe all these types of materials. A more practical approach is to comment generally on the commonly used materials which for the most part offer the gasket user a complete enough range to make a proper gasket selection.
The effectiveness of any gasket is determined to a large extent by its resistance and adaptability to five sets of conditions:
1. THE INTERNAL: The forces continually trying to unseal a gasketed joint by exerting pressure against the gasket (blowout pressure) and against the flanges holding the gasket in place (hydrostatic end force).
2. THE FLANGE LOAD: The total force compressing the gasket to create a seal, i.e., the effective pressure resulting from the bolt loading.
3. TEMPERATURE: The effects of heat or cold acting upon the gasket, flange and bolts.
4. MEDIUM: The liquid or gas against which the gasket is to seal.
5. GENERAL CONDITIONS: The type of flange, the flange surfaces, the type of bolt material, the spacing and tightness of the bolts. etc.
