Its square or rectangular cross-section provides a wider sealing surface and superior resistance to compression set than molded O-rings. Lathe cut gaskets are typically less expensive than molded alternatives and is a great choice for high volume gaskets.
Lathe cutting also is good when beveled edge gaskets or tight tolerance gaskets are required. The lathe cutting process is also a good choice when large OD gaskets or small ID gaskets are required. Filter gaskets and food grade gaskets can also be produced using this method.
