Combines the advantages of fibre-reinforced gaskets and flexible graphite.
KLINGER®top-graph 2000 combines the advantages of fibre-reinforced gaskets with the key features of flexible graphite.
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 the use with steam and other demanding applications.
Certificates & Approvals
- German Lloyd
- TA-Luft (Clean air)
- Utilization of graphite as filler
- High Level of load bearing capacity
- Improved flexibility
- Resists high surface pressure also at elevated temperatures
