Different Types of Gasket Materials

In the world of gaskets, there are a few different types. Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Silicone: Silicone is a great choice for high temperature applications, as it doesn't melt or warp at higher temperatures. It's also highly resistant to UV light and moisture. The downside is that silicone can be difficult to work with in some situations—it tends to stick back to itself, which means you have to use special tools and techniques when you're installing it.

Neoprene: Neoprene is another good option if you're working with high temperatures. It's flexible and easy to work with, and can withstand temperatures up to 200 degrees Celsius (392 degrees Fahrenheit). Neoprene doesn't stick back together like silicone does, but it does tend to sag over time if not properly maintained.

Polysulfide: Polysulfide is often used in automotive parts because it's resistant to corrosion and high temperatures. It also has low viscosity, meaning it will flow more easily into tight spaces than other materials would be able to do so without clogging filters or valves.
