Precision Cutting Service produces custom, standard and prototype gaskets from a wide range of materials. One of the more common materials is Milam PSS. It’s designed specifically for high temperature applications and it’s extremely versatile, non-flammable, and non-toxic.
What is Milam PSS Gasket Material?
Milam PSS is an asbestos-free high-temperature gasket sheet material manufactured from mica and reinforced with a perforated marine-grade (316) stainless steel sheet. Our fine abrasive water jet cutting machines can precisely shape this material to a wide variety of specifications that do not require post cut sanding or smoothing. Milam PSS is available in either 1.3 mm or 3mm thicknesses. Standard sheet sizes are 1200 mm x 1000 mm (47.2 in x 39.4 in). Typically, Milam PSS is available in a golden brown or fawn green color.
What are the advantages of Milam PSS?
Milam PSS gasket material is readily available and can be used in environments up to 900ºC (1652ºF). It also has superior resistance to acids, bases, solvents, and oils. Additionally, it has good compressive strength —a vital requirement in many gaskets that must perform under high pressure.
What are common applications of Milam PSS?
The Milam PSS gasket material functions particularly well in hot dry gas environments as gaskets for performance exhaust manifolds, turbochargers and turbines. It is also a good seal for burner ducting. In addition, Milam PSS is a great material if your application includes repeated exposure to seawater or caustic chemicals.
