The Maxiprofile is a composite gasket which utilizes a serrated metal core with a soft facing material. The metal core is machined on each contact face with concentric serrations providing high pressure areas and ensuring that the soft coating flows into any imperfections in the flange even at relatively low bolt loads. The result is a gasket which combines the benefits of soft, compressible cut materials with the advantage of seal integrity associated with metallic gaskets.
Expanded graphite is the most common facing material used for Maxiprofile gaskets, however, other materials can be used, such as PTFE for chemically aggressive applications or mica for high temperature situations.
