Graphite Specifications

General Properties of Graphite

Graphite is generally used in high temperature and high pressure environments and commonly finds applications in steam cycling or exhaust applications. These gaskets provide a higher performance seal in these conditions than non-asbestos jointing.

Graphite has a low friction surface. It excels in extreme conditions, resisting high pressures and temperatures.

It is available as a pure graphite sheet or with a steel core insertion which gives greater rigidity to the material. We can supply industrial or nuclear grade graphite.
