Gasket identification guide ring color coding

Gasket identification guide ring color coding

Gaskets are color coded to help expedite the selection and identity of the gaskets you need. The color of the outside edge of the centering ring identifies both the winding and filler materials. The metallic winding filler materials (except for asbestos) are designated by color stripes at equal intervals on the outside edge of the centering ring. The Flexitallic color code meets the industry standard for metal and filler materials which has been adopted by ASME B16.20 and the Metallic Gasket division of the Fluid Sealing Association.
