Gasket Technology

GASKET/SEAL TECHNOLOGY

At the heart of our pipe joining products is the seal. That is why all of our gaskets/seals are subject to stringent quality control, precision engineering and exhaustive testing before they ever make it into our customers' hands. Why do we spend so much time on seal technology? Because failure is never an option.

HOW DO WE DO IT?

Using advanced element analysis, our staff of world-class materials engineers are able to predict the performance of materials in numerous configurations and in countless field conditions.

We then back up that analysis with in-field testing. In fact, years of this type of analysis and testing has led to the development of our own proprietary seal compounds such as the Victaulic Grade “EHP” EPDM Gasket.

The Victaulic Grade “EHP” EPDM Gasket is the only 250°F/121°C rated EPDM gasket on the market. That is a 20-degree increase in temperature from standard industry EPDMs (rated at 230°F/110°C). Our engineering customers know that an increase in temperature ratings for a gasket translates into increased confidence in their piping systems.
