We at PGE (Pilot Gaskets and Engineers) are pioneers for providing sealing solutions to our customers when it comes to AsbestosFree alternatives.
Asbestos is a mineral wool used for its Sealing properties. But, through time, we have known that this very material is extremely carcinogenic and had been responsible for deaths of numerous workers throughout history. The microscopic asbestos fibres tend to clog onto the bronchioles inside our lungs and cause cancer, also known as Asbestosis.
PGE India has successfully been able to offer 100% AsbestosFREE Solutions to its customers ensuring better working environment for the workers as well as nearby dwellers.
PGE® India provides a range of sealing solutions for a wide range of industrial applications.
Spiral Wound Gaskets are used in some demanding applications, where the temperature and pressure are very high and there is considerably high bolt torque. Every PiloSeal™ gaskets conforms to ASME standards for better quality.
The materials of construction for these gaskets may vary depending on the applications they are meant to be used for.

Please Note: We do not recommend SS304L as it doesn’t offer the same corrosion resistance as SS316 particularly against chlorides , chlorinated solutions, brine and corrosive media. SS316 is also recommennded in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals in order to avoid excessive metallic contamination due to molybdenum. The only advantage SS304L offers is lowering of cost while sacrificing on overall Gasket performance and hence not recommended.
