A ” Soft Gasket” material is a term used when referring to a gasket material that is easily compressed under a low bolt load. This term has been used to distinguish the difference from a metallic gasket. A soft gasket material can be selected from a large variety of rubbers (neoprene, viton, SBR, EPDM, etc.), TFE, graphite, and compressed non-asbestos sheet products. Soft gaskets are used in a wide range of applications from pipe flange, heat exchanger, compressor and bonnet valve gaskets to name just a few. Soft gasketing material can be purchased in a variety of cut shapes or be provided in sheet or rolls.
