Self Lubricated Gasket
Gasket cross section for corrugated HDPE

This self lubricated gasket system can be designed for a variety of pipe types and pipe joint.  This style of gasket has been successfully used for years in corrugated HDPE pipe watertight applications.  As seen in the figure (right), the gasket is comprised of three primary components:

(1) 50 durometer sealing surface,

(2) self lubricant film layer and

(3) 70 durometer section to maintain gasket position. 

This unique tri-extrusion process is very cost effective and will exceed the performance criteria of traditional gaskets.

In addition to the excellent gasket properties, Advanced Pipe Products can design your gasket, conduct ASTM D 3212 testing and provide certification, signed by a registered professional engineer after the joint system testing is complete.

 

Key Benefits

         Gasket Design

o       70 durometer component ensures locking the gasket into the gasket seat to prevent gasket rolling

o       70 durometer minimizes amount of rubber required for a gasket system thereby reducing cost

o       50 durometer ensures gasket compression and sealing for silt tight and water tight

o       Higher UV resistance

o       Lower pipe joint assembly

o       Consistent assembled joint performance

 

         Self lubricant surface:

o       Low-Coefficient-of-Friction film layer extruded onto gasket

o       Speeds joint assembly for contractors

o       Saves cost for lubricants

o       Elements the potential for lubricant related pipe joint assembly error by contractors

o       Self lubricant surface can be a customized color for product branding

 

         Unique Santoprene gasket material:

o       Meets or exceeds ASTM F 477 requirements

o       Santoprene is produced by Exxon/Mobil

o       Highly resistant to UV degradation

o       Highly resistant to chemical attack

o       Santoprene  is an alloy of EPDM quality elastomer & polypropylene resin

Pipe Joint Design Services

APS has developed a pipe joint design calculator which takes into account the  viscoelastic behavior of the bell, spigot, and gasket material.  This design calculator is highly accurate and is useful in trouble shooting or perfecting pipe joint designs.

APS has the ability to test 4" to 60" diameter pipe to the requirement of ASTM D3212.  Testing capability, design capability and gasket manufacturing capability equals a quick turn around time for pipe joint development and certification.  Follow this link to more information on pipe joint testing.
