From around the clock to around the corner, Lewis-Goetz has the rapid, responsive sealing solution capabilities to seal the deal.

Lewis-Goetz offers an array of specialty rubber and rubber-related products for virtually every application with a special emphasis on gaskets, packing and seals for both OEM and MRO requirements.

We also provide experienced assistance to OEMs that are seeking ways to consolidate their sources of small and medium quantities of molded and extruded parts.

From standard ring gaskets to special close tolerance OEM gaskets, our shop can handle it. In today’s industry, a gasket is much more than a piece of material squeezed between two surfaces. It’s the common thread within all industries that can either keep you running or shut you down.

At Lewis-Goetz, our trained professionals and modern equipment are there to meet those high industry standards that are no longer a luxury, but a must. Whether your gasket requirements are complex or straightforward, we can handle them.

Lewis-Goetz stocks and fabricates a variety of compressed non-asbestos aramid fiber/inorganic fiber rubber bounded sheet goods in various styles, thicknesses and sizes.

These products are typically used in water, oil, mild chemical and steam type applications. General service sheet is used in temperatures as high as 700°F and pressures up to 1,200 psi.

Flexible Graphite

Lewis-Goetz stocks and fabricates flexible graphite sheet in various sizes, thicknesses and metal inserts. Flexible graphite sheet is the choice for hard to seal high temperature and chemically aggressive applications.

These products are fire tested to API 601 specifications and meet the stringent seal-ability standards in the industry. Flexible graphite is suitable for most applications with pH values ranging from 0-14ph (except for strong oxidizers) and temperatures up to 1,200°F in saturated steam and 900°F in oxidizing atmospheres.

Rubber

Lewis-Goetz stocks and fabricates all types of rubber gasketing materials. Whether your needs call for a Fluoroelastometer (Viton®), Neoprene, Nitrile, SBR (usually red rubber), EPDM, Natural (gum rubber) etc.; Lewis-Goetz will supply it. Since rubber requires the lowest loading of all gasket material; it’s ideal for flange designs sugh as flat faced flange and manway applications or where inadequate fastener loading is present. Temperature range is from -32°F to 500°F and up to 150PSI.

Lewis-Goetz stocks and fabricates a variety of compressed sheet – inorganic, carbon, and graphite fiber sheet products to handle the more demanding services in the process and power industries in various styles, thicknesses and sizes.

These products are typically used in more aggressive and higher temperature applications than general service sheet and meet fire safe standards. These gaskets are great for product consolidation initiatives due to their ability and adaptability to handle a high range of service applications.

Gasket are typically used in mild chemical, steam and oil applications and can handle temperatures up to 750°F and pressures up to 2,000 psi.

Lewis-Goetz stocks and supplies a full array of metal gaskets including spiral wounds, double jacketed, ring joint, camprofile, and corrugated metal gaskets.

Primarily used in high temperature (up to 1,200°F) and high pressure (up to 5,000 psi) applications, metal gaskets have become the industry’s toughest problem solvers in a host of industries.

Lewis-Goetz stocks and fabricates a variety of fluoropolymer products, from virgin and commercial grade fluoropolymer to filled fluoropolymer where glass (and other fillers) is added to the manufacturing process to reduce cold flow.

Expanded PTFE (another fluoropolymer product) is used where low bolt load requirements or damaged flanges exist. Chemically inert, fluoropolymer products are widely used in chemical, petrochemical, refining and food industries. Fluoropolymer is suitable for a wide temperature range (-400 to 500°F) and can be used in a ph range of 0-14.

We carry studs, bolts, nuts, socket heads, washers, threaded bar and more in a variety of materials, coatings, and sizes.
