Gasket Compression Pecentage Calculation



720 lb Clamp, Foot Print / Contact Area Foot Size: 3" x 12" each
Total Area: 2 x 36in² = 72 in²



HT-800 Silicone Pad Size: 3" x 12" each
Total Area: 2 x 36in² = 72 in²



Mounting Plate



Calculation: Load / Area = 720lb / 72 in² = 10 lb/in²

Compression: From the Compression Force Deflection Curve, HT-800 will compress approximately 30%. (Note, compressing more than 50% may rupture cells and damage material)
