KLINGER® TOP-GRAPH 2000

Combines the advantages of fibre-reinforced gaskets and flexible graphite.

KLINGER®top-graph 2000 is constructed by a combination of expanded graphite and synthetic fibres to give a revolutionary sealing material with outstanding flexibility and excellent stability in steam.

Basis

Graphite and synthetic fibres bonded with NBR.

Areas of application

Thanks to its high degree of inherent stability this material offers reliability in handling. Due to the high load bearing capacity and the low embrittlement, KLINGER®top-graph 2000 is ideal for use with steam and other demanding applications.
  • Used for oil, steam, hydrocarbons, oxygen and water applications.
  • Premium quality material for many industrial sealing applications.
  • Excellent resistance to hot water and steam.

Properties

  • A combination of expanded graphite and synthetic fibres to give a revolutionary sealing material with outstanding flexibility and excellent stability in steam.
  • Resistance to oils, fuels, hydrocarbons etc.
  • Easy to handle and cut.
  • Good leakage properties.
  • Available in sheet form and as cut gaskets.
  • 3xA anti-stick finish on both sides.
  • Utilization of graphite as filler.
  • High Level of load bearing capacity.
  • Resists high surface pressure also at elevated temperatures.
  • Also available in stainless-steel reinforcements: KLINGERtop-graph 2008
