Consisting of a high precision and high strength metal core that is epoxy resin coated to resist corrosion and give central alignment of the gasket within the flange. The highly conformable GORE™ GR ePTFE primary seal flows into the damaged flange to create a seal and limit further corrosion. Furthermore, a secondary seal of KLINGER®top chem 2000 with uniquely holds fire-safe approval to API 6FA, conveys excellent blow out resistance and minimal gasket creep over the lifetime of the joint.

|Highly conformable GORE™ GR multidirectional ePTFE is designed to flow into the damaged flange creating a seal and limiting further corrosion. KLINGER’s active partner Gore Sealant Technologies has developed a specialist range of PTFE products over the last 50 years to meet the stringent demands of the Petrochemical Industry.||Premium grade modified PTFE KLINGER® Top-Chem 2000 which uniquely holds fi re-safe approval to API 6FA,is bound to the precision profi led metal core, conveying excellent blow out resistance. KLINGER® Top-Chem-2000 is also creep resistant, minimising any stress reduction over the lifetime of the joint.||The gasket incorporates a high-strength metallic core which increases resistance to blow out and helps create a stable high-integrity joint which is robust, easy to handle and install. The epoxy coated full-face metallic core ensures the gasket is centrally located with the flange and the coating provides resistance to corrosion necessary for offshore applications.|
The FSCCG is installed like any other gasket; simply remove any loose debris from the flange surface with a wire brush before fitting the gasket. The full-face design ensures the gasket is located correctly.
