KLINGER® Hygrade LS

Hygrade LS gasket sheeting is made of 100% expanded PTFE using a special process that produces a uniform and highly fibrillated multidirectional microstructure. This creates a soft and pliable, yet very tough gasket that has excellent resistance to compression, creep relaxation and cold flow. Suitable for uneven and damaged flanges.

Hygrade LS sheet gasketing possesses universal resistance against common chemicals, except melted alkali metal, fluorine in liquid and gas state. It is free from asbestos, meets the FDA requirements, is anti-corrosive and has unlimited shelf life.
