Klinger top-graph-2000

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.

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 the use with steam and other demanding applications.
