Plastic Gasket Material Advantages
Plastics are a low-cost, versatile material for gaskets. Plastic gaskets are used in a broad range of applications due to the wide range of properties exhibited by plastic compounds. Gaskets of this type are typically lightweight and low friction with good sealing and insulation properties. Plastic gaskets are commonly used as an alternative to metal and demonstrate good durability and a broad range of temperature tolerances. Some compounds show resistance to corrosive materials such as fuel and oil.
Benefits of plastic gaskets include:
- Wide temperature range
- Abrasion resistance
- Noise reduction
- Hydrocarbon resistant
- Rigidity and stability
Types of Plastic Gasket Material
Selecting the right sealing material is important, and there are very few applications our knowledgeable team at Automated Gasket Corp. isn’t familiar with. We can assist you in determining which plastic material will perform best in your unique application. There are two main types of plastics — thermoplastics and thermosetting polymers. We hold a large stock of plastic seal and gasket materials in a wide range of thicknesses and can source, supply, and convert sheets to suit your specific needs.
Common plastic gasket materials include:
- Acetal (Delrin®)
- Mylar® Polyester Film
- Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE)
- High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
- High Impact Polystyrene
- Kapton® Polyimide Film
- Polycarbonate (Lexan®)
- Plastic Shim Stock (Color Coded)
- Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW)
- Vinyl (Rigid & Flexible)
