Gasket Sealing Applications
For years you have trusted The Gund Company to supply the best quality transformer insulation materials.
Transformer gasket materials are so critical to the life and performance of your transformer; it makes sense to use the best materials for sealing applications as well. Besides the potential for catastrophic failure, improper sealing can lead to oil contamination, damaging insulation materials and significantly reducing the life of a transformer. Regardless of the transformer, our application engineering expertise can help our customers understand their options for gasket material selection.
Transformers play a critical role in the efficiency and distribution of power to the community.
Including traditional transformer maintenance, re-gasketing can help maintain the transformer’s dielectric strength, prevent oxygen, nitrogen, and/or moisture leaks, prevent oil contamination, and more…
Regardless of the transformer, our application engineering expertise can help our customers understand their options for gasket material selection.
