KLINGER top-graph 2008
KLINGER top-graph 2008 really flexible graphite sealing material now supplied wire reinforced. It combines "high load bearing capacity" and high sealability with improved blow-out resistance. KLINGER top-graph 2008 is ideally suited for use with steam up to 300°C and many high temperature applications up to 500°C.
This material is based on the proven formulation for Klinger top-graph 2000 which combines the handling advantages of fibre reinforced gaskets with the performance advantages of graphite to give a truly flexible graphite sealing solution. The addition of the wire insert significantly increases tensile strength and will therefore be the preferred solution for many users where pulsating pressure loads exist. Top-graph 2008 demonstrates improved storage, handling and installation characteristics when compared to exfoliated graphite products. The material has a high load-bearing capacity and is suitable for use with steam to 300°C and many other applications up to 500°C.
The surface finish of the material is such that it has an extremely low adhesion to the flange faces.
Function and Durability
The performance and life of KLINGER gaskets depend in large measure on proper storage and fitting, factors beyond the manufacturer’s control. We can, however, vouch for the excellent quality of our products. With this in mind, please also observe our installation instructions.
