These gaskets are normally used with raised face flanges. And give an excellent seal due to the very long leakage path.
It will not age, harden, shrink or dry out in service, be unaffected by common chemicals.With good sealability and flexibility, it can seal rough or damaged surface. It is used in spiral wound gasket as filler material.
