Flexitallic has received a prestigious industry accreditation for its high-performing and innovative gasket material, Thermiculite®.
Developed for use in critical service applications from cryogenics to temperatures in excess of 1,000˚C, Thermiculite® 835, which is a filler material for spiral wound gaskets, and Thermiculite 845, which is used to cover the face of Kammprofile gaskets, have both passed TA Luft’s threshold of the German air pollution standards. Thermiculite® is a critical component in eliminating graphite oxidation, which limits seal life and seal tightness and is highly-effective in maintaining joint integrity in systems that experience a spectrum of temperature cycles.
The material has been applied to gaskets in operation across Germany in industries including, among others, Refining, Power Generation, OEMs and in the chemical and process industries for the manufacture of products such as fertilizer and ethylene.
