Thermiculite® 896 material has found usage where a robust product is required with small land-widths.
Suitable for high temperature applications
Excellent gas and liquid sealing characteristics
Good stress retention
Excellent low load sealing characteristics
Suitable for use in high temperature low stress sealing applications
Very low halogen content coupled with a sulphur free curing system gives excellent resistance to stress corrosion
Suitable for seawater service or marine environments. This contrasts with products based on exfoliated graphite where galvanic corrosion can occur
Not susceptible to thermal oxidation.
