Metallic & Spiral Wound Gaskets

One of the best all-around seals, the spiral wound gasket offers a low-cost solution that has the ability to handle temperature and pressure fluctuations. Multiple plies of metal and filler in the spiral create a barrier that reduces the possibility of leaks.

Garlock Controlled Density™

  • On all 150 & 300 lb. class flexible graphite filled gaskets
