Asbestos Gasket – Ideal Insulating and Corrosion Resistant Material

Asbestos Gasket is inexpensive, readily available and stable. It is fireproof and can withstand extreme heat making it the ideal thermal isolation material. As well, asbestos gaskets are non-corrosive, impervious to chemical reactions and non-conductive of electricity.

It is widely used in exhaust systems, turbo chargers and cylinder.
