Metal Reinforced Gasket
A laminated gasket with a metal core, covered using soft conformable sealing materials on each face of the core is a Metal Reinforced Gasket falling in the range of up to pressure class 300. The solid metal core prevents gasket blowout by providing high strength and rigidity while the soft core accounts for exceptional gasket sealing.
Metal reinforced gasket manufactured at Goodrich Gasket Pvt Ltd finds its application in chemical and petroleum industries being a high temperature gasket, offering corrosion resistance and high integral jointing.
The metal core material possessing chemical resistance and temperature stability is selected to suit the media to be sealed which is either 304 or 316L Stainless Steel with standard core thickness of 1/8”. Soft gasket facings have flexible graphite as their standard material.

Metal reinforced gaskets can be utilized as a part of conventional compressed fiber gasket sheets or in some cases as spiral wound gaskets.
But its main usage rests on special type assemblies and due to the laser manufacturing techniques at Goodrich Gasket we offer metal reinforced gasket of any desired shape.
Metal reinforced gaskets also finds its usage in restricted or limited space applications, limited bolt load situations in seating the gasket.
Goodrich Gasket’s metal reinforced gasket has a narrow cross sectional width putting it into usage for floating head arrangements of heat exchangers, earning the usage as heat exchanger gaskets.
