Upgrade from Traditional Gaskets to
USA Industries' Exclusive EZ Torque® Gaskets
Greatly Improve Sealing Capabilities With Less Than Half the Installation Torque Required for Flat Gaskets
Our EZ Torque Gasket provides a positive seal with less than half the installation torque required for flat gaskets. The gasket is a serrated metal core with bonded layers of graphite on each surface. This greatly increases the ability of our gasket to seal against surface imperfections, eliminating expensive re-machining costs.
The EZ Torque Gasket helps lower the expense of downtime during your turnaround / shutdown by ensuring you pass leak tests on the first attempt. Our gasket also requires less torque, preventing damage and deformation to header box gasket surfaces, plug thread galling, and thread shear within your header box.
