Not all Compressed Non-Asbestos gaskets are created equally. Garlock’s compressed fiber gasketing materials are manufactured using a proven technique referred to as the High Pressure Sheet (HPS) process. One thing that makes the Garlock product different from other HPS products is the way they are made using a proprietary non-VOC solvent which is environmentally friendly.
Modern “fiber” gaskets are constructed with a fiber (typically an aramid), rubber and fillers. The fillers in these gaskets should be beneficial: Premium fillers will enhance many gasketing properties, including chemical and temperature resistance.
