The most common type of gaskets are designed to seal flanged joints of piping systems. The pipe flange gasket is typically round in configuration with an Inside Diameter (ID); Outside Diameter (OD) and may have a Hole Patterns or Bolt (Hole) Circles.
Standard Sizes and Dimensions
Pipe Gaskets are made to fit and seal pipes and flanges. The most common standards are ASA/ANSI (USA); PN/DIN (European); BS10 (British/Australian) and JIS/KS (Japanese/Korean).
- Gasket Tables referenced below for ANSI Standard Flanges (ASA) – To BS EN 12560-1:2001
- Gasket Tables referenced below for PN Designated Flanges (DIN) – To BS EN 1514-1:1967
Pipe gaskets typically follow the standard size and dimensions. But for those applications outside the standards UIP International may custom make your gaskets to your sample or specifications.
UIP International supplies pipe gaskets in a wide range of materials from an extensive inventory. Our gasket cutting capabilities include wood and steel rule dies on Clicker presses; hand cut and custom made stripping (for door seals) and a computer assisted high-speed oscillating knife cutter for large production and high precision capabilities.
Applications include food grade gaskets, high temperature gaskets, meter gaskets, oil gaskets, valve gaskets and many more.
Full-Face and Ring Style Gaskets
Pipe Gaskets can be either Full-Faced or Ringed. Full-face gaskets having bolt holes between the ID and OD that cover the full face of a flat flange. Ring Type or Inner Bolt Circle gaskets sit inside the bolts fastening the pipe flanges on raised-face joints.

Gaskets make the best seal using the thinnest material available for an application. Given the flange face is smooth and without defects, the thinner material will seal best and handle a higher internal pressure of the media being conveyed by the pipe. Thicker materials are utilized where some deformity in the flange face exists and the extra material will flow into the deformities.
UIP International offers many types of gasket materials for a vast range of uses. It is best to consult with our experienced personnel for the best material for your application. We have a wide range of sheet rubber in rolls and slabs; non-asbestos; Grafoil, Teflon, PTFE and other non-metallic fiber sheets in various thicknesses and durometers (hardness).
We also distribute metallic gaskets including Spiral-wound, Ring Joint and Kammprofile.
