'A shaped sheet or ring of rubber or other material sealing the junction between two surfaces in an engine or other device.'
- Gasket, Oxford English Dictionary
Metal gaskets are generally used in inhospitable environments, where other materials would lack durability. As chemical Etching provides burr and stress-free gaskets and seals any Etch Tech customer can feel secure in the longevity and durability of our product.
The chemical milling / photo etching process produces burr-free, and stress-free, gaskets when cutting out the profile, unlike alternatives such as laser cutting. Etch Tech is able to produce a surface etch on the material, thereby creating a sealing groove, or platform, within the design / material of the gasket. Due to this, precision gaskets are an ideal component to be manufactured by Chemical Milling / Photo Etching Process.
Etch Tech has a wealth of experience in the manufacture of high precision custom designed gaskets into the following sectors:
Oil and Gas
Etch Tech can supply Photo Chemically Milled / Photo Etched metal Gaskets in the following materials:
