Acid Resistant Gaskets

Gaskets are components, typically made of a rubber-like material, used to make a joint fluid-tight. Acid resistant gaskets are commonly used as face seals on the flanges of joints in containment vessels. The gasket material is what dictates the level of acid resistance, therefore, material selection is critical and is directly related to the chemical being contained. Butyl is a common material for acid resistant gaskets because it provides good resitance to most acids.
