Are you looking for a gasketing solution? Not sure what you need? You're not alone! Gaskets are available in a range of mediums and designs that meet the specifications of engineers working in diverse industries. So, how do you determine the best choice for your project? It's not an easy decision to make, but it may well be a critical component of your bottom-line success. To get started, consider these suggestions:

- The right gasket can ensure long-term functionality. Heat, electronic emissions, energy dissipation needs, UV exposure, moisture, harmful particles -- these are only a sampling of the factors that you must consider. Poor gasket choices result in maintenance problems, unhappy customers, and lost sales.

- Gasket choices impact final costs. Simply put, you may find that many commonly used gaskets cost more than innovative, newcomer solutions. It pays to stay alert and informed about your options.
