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.
