Gaskets

Mechanical Seals

Engine Seals suit high-temperature connections.

Tri-Clad® seals and gaskets combine Thermafoil® and Thermabraid® graphite with range of high-temperature metals. Compressible and resilient graphite elements act as spring to maintain sealing force throughout thermal excursions, while metal provides protection and support. Seals are suited for critical engine joints at temperatures exceeding 1,000°C.
