Gasket and gaskets are the materials used to prevent the passage of any foreign media back and forth, the object being gasketed under compression. Gasket is a mechanical seal that fills the space between two or more mating surfaces, to prevent leakage. The seals allow a perfect contact surface in which they can fill in the irregularities.

The main function of an industrial gasket or seal is to optimize the performance of a machine with its process reliability. Seals are also used in applications involving rotary and reciprocating motions. Industrial seals have played an important role in providing optimum efficiency and productivity over the past decades. The global market has witnessed significant growth over the past decades and is expected to grow moderately in the future.

New investment in energy and utilities in the Middle East will increase the demand for industrial seals. Our products will help boost UAE exports to the rest of the world,” said Richard S. Edwin.
