The benefits of corrugated semi-metallic gaskets are their very good mechanical durability and thermal conductivity. With the right material choices made, corrugated semi-metallic gaskets are well suited for high temperature applications.
Corrugated semi-metallic gaskets are made with or without surface materials and with sealing surface material. The operation of corrugated semi-metallic gaskets is based on the hardness differences of different metal materials.
Particularly on sites where there is no possibility of high bolt forces, a soft sealing material is installed on the surfaces of the corrugated metal seal.
Corrugated semi-metallic gaskets can be made in very large sizes and, thanks to its firm structure, it’s easy to handle. There are no significant limitations for the geometries of this gasket type.
