What is a Gasket made of?

Gasket’s are usually made from a flat and flexible sealing material. There are many types of material for different applications. Common materials include cork, rubber, non-asbestos fibre, graphite, silicone, paper, PTFE, shim and many more. For high temperature and high pressure some gaskets are made entirely of metal such as RTJ (ring type joints) and Spirally Wound gaskets.
