The Iconic SILCA 24.1 gasket has been updated and improved after more than 30 years in the market. The new 242 gasket utilizes a high tech and very red, fully synthetic elastomer base material rather than a carbon black filled natural rubber of previous gaskets. This unique bright red gasket borrows from industries which require air-tight seals in the harshest of environments, and tests to a life expectancy of more than 5X the carbon filled rubber or Buna-N materials used previously.
New Two-Stage seal geometry seals on both valve stem and at the base of valve core threads resulting in a more positive seal and improved durability. The new gasket slips onto the valve stem with a satisfying click while unique internal geometry actually utilizes line air pressure to compress the gasket onto the valve stem. The higher you pump, the harder it grips the stem.Return to Top
