Spiral Wound Gaskets

Spiral Wound Gaskets

Spiral wound gaskets (commonly referred to as metaflex or maxiflex gaskets) consist of a pre-formed metallic winding strip with layers of softer, more compressible sealing material, such as graphite, compressed fibre or PTFE. This gives the gasket the ability to recover under fluctuating loads.
