Rubber-steel gaskets are made of a formed rubber body with an inner steel ring. Through the vulcanisation rubber and steel insert form a stable group.
In particular, our rubber-steel gaskets are used for sealing hydrocarbons, coal, water, acids and alkalis, and air. While they can only be used in the case of comparatively low temperatures of up to 200 ° C and under low pressure conditions, there is a wide range of advantages to rubber-steel gaskets, however.
They consist of a steel ring coated with rubber (caoutchouc), which not only makes them resistant to corrosion, but also safe from media.
The optimal application scope of rubber-steel gaskets can be found wherever effective sealing of comparatively cool substances with incredibly low leakage levels, coupled with low contact forces for the screw, is required.
The application of rubber-steel gaskets is particularly recommended for scopes of application where a safe sealing with low surface pressure is necessary. Rubber-steel gaskets are made in different profiles and dimensions, according to the scope of application.
