GRAFOIL® flexible graphite outperforms other materials in high and low temperatures and provides superior sealing in the most demanding chemical and petrochemical applications.
GRAFOIL® flexible graphite has long been considered one of the safest materials for nearly all fluid sealing applications. These products are widely recognized as being fire resistant and environmentally safe. These products are ideal for sealing difficult high temperature applications, chemical applications, and low bolt load applications.
GRAFOIL® gaskets, manufactured from sheet or roll products, compact under only moderate bolt loads to fill microscopic irregularities in nearly every fluid sealing application. Small surface irregularities are more easily filled under lighter bolt loads, thus, reducing the need for costly surface refinishing. Since there is negligible cold flow or creep, the need for periodic precision bolt tightening is significantly reduced. We have *GRAFOIL® gaskets available for your use and also can assist you in understanding and application of this product.
GRAFOIL® laminates are available in several styles with metallic or non-metallic interlayer for additional strength, adhesive facings, and other configurations. For appropriate volumes, we can even help design a laminate for your specific gaskets needs.
*GRAFOIL® flexible graphite is the ideal solution for automotive applications such as head gaskets, exhaust gaskets, throttle body gaskets, EGR gaskets, or anywhere a top-quality sealing, high temperature gasket is needed. Additional applications include heat shields, squeak/rattle isolators and thermal hot spot spreaders. *GRAFOIL® flexible graphite can also be used in internal combustion engines, such as reciprocating or rotary; spark or compression ignition; and two or four stroke.
