Strength and resiliency are the hallmarks of spiral wound gaskets which are a popular choice for an array of conditions and applications. These gaskets are extensively used in such environments as refineries and chemical processing plants as well as power generation, aerospace, and many specialized applications.

Spiral wound gasket makers are presently changing over to a new specification set that covers spiral wound gaskets. The previous standard was API 601 which has been replaced by ASME B16.20.
