Jacketed gaskets combine the temperature resistance of a metal jacket with the sealing performance of a soft filler. The jacket and filler materials are selected to optimizes temperature and chemical performance; construction style is dictated by pressure needs, gasket geometry and sealing issues.
There are three basic styles of jacketed gaskets:
Single Jacket: The most basic form of jacketed gasket, with coverage, a metallic surface such as copper or stainless steel, on one face and both edges.
Double Jacket:Where full coverage is needed and flange is wide relative to gasket ID and the filler material is completely encapsulated...
French Style Jacket:Provides coverage on one side only (inside or outside) and both faces. The flange is narrow relative to gasket ID
