Isolation gaskets are an inherent part of the pipeline industry, and play a vital role in protecting pipeline assets and meeting emissions requirements. Glass epoxy-based gaskets have been used for over half a century. However, they are plagued by many problems that result from the changing requirements and dynamics of the pipeline industry.
New gaskets that are free from plastic overcome the challenges faced by traditional GRE-based gaskets. The pipeline industry has evolved over the years. Slowly but steadily, the isolation gaskets are evolving as well. With the advent of new solutions, such as Evolution, the days of plastic gaskets for isolation will be history.
