What Are Beaded Gaskets?
Gaskets are the objects that fill the space between two adjacent surfaces, sealing them against leaks. Beaded gaskets are a type of metal gasket that features a resilient, high-performance, non-stick elastomer coating and silicone beading on both sides. This technology offers an appealing price-to-performance ratio that often surpasses other sealing methods.
Industries that may benefit from gasket beading include automotive, industrial, medical, and many others. Specific applications include intake manifolds, oil pans, transmission flanges, housings, and pumps. In short, beaded gaskets are ideal in situations where high mechanical and/or thermal loads are expected, especially if there are narrow sealing faces and low surface pressures.
Beaded gaskets can be designed from numerous materials and are available at various thicknesses based on the sealing pressure required. A variety of fabrication processes may also be used to achieve extremely tight tolerances, including die-cutting, kiss-cutting, laminating, molding, milling, and precision slitting.

Benefits of Beaded Gaskets
You may choose beaded gaskets over other sealing options for the following reasons:
- Superior sealability: Gasket beading improves the seal against liquids and gases by conforming to uneven surfaces, including gouges, scratches, and as-cast imperfections. Expect excellent leak resistance against oils, fuels, antifreeze, refrigerants, and biologically degraded lubricants.
- Concentrated surface pressure and flange load: Beaded gaskets improve the available load to stop leaks from developing where the bead has been applied.
- Cost-effective solution for resolving performance issues: With the proper design and placement of the bead, these gaskets can greatly improve the sealing characteristics of problematic flanges without expensive redesigns, material upgrades, or other alterations to machined or cast flanges.
- High-performance properties: Beaded gaskets offer high elasticity, recovery, mechanical strength, and heat and corrosion resistance.
