Sigma - Developed for processes ranging from cryogenic temperatures to 500ºF (260ºC), and suitable for sealing virtually every chemical medium across the entire pH range (0-14), SIGMA pairs the outstanding chemical resistance of PTFE with enhanced dimensional stability to improve overall material stress retention. The non-stick properties of the SIGMA range materials offer excellent removal after usage to dramatically reduce the downtime on shutdown.

Semi Metallic - These are composite gaskets consisting of both metallic and non-metallic materials. The metal provides the strength and the resilience of the gasket and the non-metallic component provides the conformable sealing material. These gaskets are suitable for low and high pressure and temperature applications. A wide range of materials is available.
- Spiral Wound
- MRG Gasket
- Flexpro Gasket
- Metal Jacketed
- CGI-MRG Gasket
- Baker Gasket
Metallic - The ring type joint was initially developed for use in the petroleum industry, where high pressure/temperature applications necessitated the need for a high integrity seal. They are mainly used in the oil field on drilling and completion equipment. Ring type joints are also commonly used on valves and pipework assemblies, along with some high integrity pressure vessel joints.

- Style RX
- Style BX
Non-Metallic - Flexitallic have developed compressed fiber gasket sheet products approaching, and in some instances surpassing the capabilities of previous materials. Some of these products have been fibre-reinforced grades, manufactured by the traditional calendering or sheeter process.
- Compressed Fiber
- Flexicarb Graphite
