Design of all the Metal Jacketed Gaskets produced by ABO Guarnizioni
MP 1004 / MP 1005
Single jacketed gaskets: they are used for relatively narrow applications.
Made by encasing a soft filler on one face and both edges with metal.

MP 1006 / MP 1007 / MP 1008
Double jacketed gaskets: they are used when complete protection of the filler is required. They also provide additional support of the flanges at the outer edges thanks to an overlapped jacket. They are made of a soft filler completely enclosed by a metal shell and a top washer.

MP 1009
Overlapped jacketed gaskets: they are used when a completely enclosed gasket is required whose width is smaller than the one available in the plain double jacketed series.

MP 1010
Double shell, double jacketed gaskets: they are used when a gasket having greater strength and rigidity is required. They are made of a soft filler by two reversed and overlapping metal shells.

MP 1011 / MP 1012
Corrugated jacketed gaskets: the corrugated jacketed increases the gasket resistance.
This type employs an asbestos-free filler completely enclosed by a corrugated metal shell and a top washer.
If a slight leakage occurs through the inner edge, the concentric corrugations act as labyrinth seal.
Sealing capacity can be further improved by using adhesive layer ribbon.

MP 1013 / MP 1014
Corrugated jacketed gaskets with corrugated metal insert: like corrugated jacketed type with a corrugated metal insert. This 3-ply design provides a more resistant construction that adapts to cyclicle operating temperature problems.
