There are gaskets everywhere. They’re in your car, at your workplace, and even in the air! A gasket is a common term for any seal or grommet that connects two objects. Rubber, plastic, metal, and some other materials can be used to build gaskets. The material you use is determined by why you need a gasket.
A gasket is a mechanical seal that fills the space between two or more mating surfaces, preventing leakage from or into the joined objects while they are compressed. Gaskets come in many types of designs based on the commercial application, budget, chemical contact, and physical parameters.
A gasket, also known as an O-ring or washer, is a piece of rubber that seals the gap between two surfaces. Most of these items are made of rubber and come in a wide range of sizes and shapes based on their intended use.

Flange gaskets may be encountered while shopping for gaskets. They are one of the most widely used types of gaskets. Flange gaskets function similarly to other gaskets in that they seal the surface on which they are used. They are called “flange gaskets” because they are designed to be used on a flanged surface.
Flange gaskets are used to seal the gap between two pipe sections. Of course, most pipes are joined at a flanged surface. The bridge between the two pipes could be smoother and flatter. It’s flanged, which means it flares out. Flange gaskets are used on flanged surfaces like this one.
Flange gaskets work in the same way as other types of gaskets. When installed, they form a sealed mating surface, preventing water or other liquids from leaking out. Water or liquids are typically pumped through pipes. Water or liquids may leak out through this mating surface if two pipes are joined together. Flange gaskets keep this from happening by sealing the surface.
When used solely, pipes do not provide a sealed mating surface. This is especially true for pipes with flanged surfaces. Water and liquids can easily escape through the cracks in flanged surfaces because they are flared. Installing a flanged gasket is a simple way to prevent leaks. The flanked gasket will contour to the shape of the flanged surface of the pipes, keeping water or liquids within the pipes.
