GASKET SILICONE .125 X .500
Gaskets are used in restaurant equipment to create a seal between two surfaces, such as between the door of a refrigerator and the frame or between two pieces of metal in a gas range. The gasket helps to prevent leaks of air or liquids, as well as to maintain a consistent temperature inside the equipment. Gaskets are often made of rubber or other flexible materials that can withstand heat and cold and maintain their shape over time. They are used in a wide variety of restaurant equipment, including refrigerators, freezers, ovens, and steam tables and are also commonly used in plumbing for equipment and sinks.
