Select-a-Seal (SAS) Gen II from Interface Solutions combines the features of first-generation SAS gaskets (rubber-edged composites with compressible, non-rigid composite bases and rubber sealing edges) with stable bolt-load retention (BLR) at high temperatures. SAS Gen II also features a specially engineered carrier with a high density and low organic content to deliver stable BLR in a range of joint designs and at temperatures up to 175°C (347°F). A proprietary coating process forms an edge on the inner aperture of each gasket, reducing molding and tooling costs. SAS Gen II provides a lightweight, corrosion-proof, durable joint by combining both compression and adhesion in the sealing process.
