These gasket are made from knitted metal wire and supplied in different shapes and dimensions.
All commercial metal wires can be used, although monel, stainless steel; SCF and aluminum are the most popular wires.
Standard forms are O-Strips, rectangular shapes, O-Strips with fins and double O-strips with fins.
As all metal gaskets have limited elasticity, it is important to be aware of the closing force. This should not exceed 20% when opening and closing the enclosure frequently.
With 40% compression, permanent deformation should be expected.
Therefore, > 40% compression should be used only when gaskets are replaced after each opening of enclosures.
