Thermiculite® 717

Thermiculite® 717

Leveraging our gasket material knowledge, Flexitallic® engineers developed the revolutionary Thermiculite material over ten years ago. Thermiculite has replaced asbestos and graphite gaskets in the most demanding service applications in the petrochemical markets. Operating temperatures exceeding 1000°F combined with aggressive chemicals have been successfully sealed for extended periods using Thermiculite 800 series gaskets. This material has repeatedly solved chronic problem services and brought process and product improvements with a high impact to the bottom line.
Thermiculite 717 extends our material technology with a novel platy gasket structure that delivers superior temperature and chemical resistance in a fire safe gasket material.
Thermiculite 717 has physical properties that make it an obvious choice for end users looking for chemical resistance and fire safety.
Gasket fabrication benefits from this application versatility with a more productive inventory.
