Abstract

Described is a method of making a gasket for sealing in a print nozzle against a hostile liquid (e.g., ink). The improved gasket has application to inkjet printers in which fluid may be heated and/or charged as well as pressurized and may be corrosive to some plastic materials. In such environments, vibration, creep of materials and deformations may be experienced, testing the sealing qualities of the gasket.
