Encapsulated Gaskets

Meeting Your Most Demanding Sealing Requirements

Encapsulated gaskets are used extensively in semiconductor applications where precision, purity, and contamination control are critical. These gaskets are made of a soft, resilient core material that is encapsulated within a thin layer of fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) or perfluoroalkoxy (PFA) fluoropolymer.

Many companies that manufacture semiconductors use encapsulated gaskets in their wafer processing equipment, chemical handling systems, high-purity environments, and ultra-high vacuum applications. North Coast Seal proudly delivers sealing solutions that can meet the harshest demands.

Encapsulated Gasket Materials

Offering High-Temperature Performance and More

There are two components to encapsulated gaskets. The core is typically made from elastomers or other soft materials that provide the gasket with its resilience and sealing properties—these include silicone, fluoroelastomers (FKM), and ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM).

The encapsulation layer is made from FEP or PFA fluoropolymers which offer excellent chemical resistance, thermal stability, and low friction characteristics. North Coast Seal offers a wide variety of materials that meet the need for encapsulated gaskets to offer versatility, superior resistance to chemicals, reduced particle generation, and compatibility for use with ultra-high vacuum applications.
