Drainage Pipe Gasket Applications

Drainage Pipe Gasket Applications

Click to Expand

Drainage pipe gaskets are essential components for a wide range of consumer, commercial, industrial, and municipal systems. The main purpose of a drainage pipe gasket is to seal a joint and prevent water from leaking out while keeping outside dirt, debris, and other contaminants out of the pipe.

Some of the most common applications for drainage pipe gaskets include:

New Construction and Infrastructure

Every new construction starts with the layout and installation of a drainage pipe system. These systems are often buried under the building foundation and landscaping, so they need pipe gaskets that are built to last. Drainage pipe gaskets are also essential parts in interior pipe installations to protect new buildings from water damage.

Water Management Applications

All water management applications rely on gaskets to keep water inside the system and keep contaminants out. UP&R provides engineered pipe gaskets for a variety of water management applications, including:

  • Water transfer: potable, drainage, irrigation, stormwater & sewage
  • Fire suppression
  • Filtration
  • Flow control
  • Box culvert, manholes
  • Pipe joining
  • Pipe links
  • Box culverts and manholes

Other areas that rely on drainage pipe gaskets to ensure effective piping systems include:

  • Retail housing
  • Big home builds (complexes)
  • Municipal buildings


Drainage pipe gaskets come in several different material options, including:

  • Polyisoprene
  • EPDM
  • Neoprene
  • Nitrile

For applications where residual oil is found in the ground, nitrile gaskets offer the best solution, as the material is completely oil-resistant. Neoprene is only partially oil-resistant and would not be the best option for oily conditions.
