Developed by AMG metallurgical engineers, Steel-Tite gasket material provides the same "softness" and sealing characteristics as copper, yet costs roughly one-third the price. Steel-Tite can be formed or drawn. Our process shall ensure consistent hardness throughout a given heat, which is approximately Rockwell B-0. Steel-Tite can often be softened to as low as Rockwell H-70 through special annealing procedures. It is available in a wide range of gages in sheet form and Steel-Tite wire can be provided in a range from 0.095" to 0.375" in diameter.
