Since Asbestos has been banned, the research and development of new gasket materials and designs have continued. One of the materials that are closest to the nature of asbestos is metal. Metal gaskets have been used extensively as static insulation in many industries because they have high temperature and chemical resistance, can withstand pressure, be recycled, and reliability in critical situations. Types of metal gaskets can be distinguished based on their shape. The focus of this research is the corrugated type gasket. Based on previous research, it has been found that important parameters of metal gasket performance are contact width and contact stress. Research developed so far is that the design of corrugated metal gaskets is divided into two types based only on the contact width of the plastic conditions without considering the magnitude of the contact stress and vice versa. In this study, we propose a new approach with contact width and contact stress calculated together as evaluation criteria to optimize corrugated metal gaskets' design. The Taguchi method is used as an optimization design method and a finite element software to obtain result data. This study aimed to obtain an optimal gasket design by utilizing this new approach by using the Taguchi method as an experimental design and simulation method to obtain the result data. This will result in a new design of corrugated metal gasket type which can prevent better leakage performance.
