Crinkled Graphite Tape is slit from high purity industrial grade flexible graphite, 99% graphite carbon, no filler, no binder material. The tape is crinkled or corrugated to enhance the tape flexibility.
Main Characteristics and Properties
- Heat and fire resistant
- Chemical resistant, compatible with most chemicals
- Compressible, conformable, low creep relaxation
- Thermal conductive, electrical conductive
Working Temperature Range:
Oxidizing Atmosphere, such as air: -400°F to 950°F(-240°C to 510°C)
Mild Oxidizing Atmosphere of most gasket applications: -400°F to 1500° F(-240°C to 850° C)
Non-Oxidizing Atmosphere: -400°F to 5400°F (-240°C to 3000°C)
Parallel to Sheet Surface: 960 BTU-in/ft2.h.F (140 W/m.K)
Through Thickness: 36 BTU.in/ ft2.h.F (5W/m.K)
Crinkled Graphite Tape with PSA can be used as form-in-place gasket, valve stem packing, pump stuffing box packing, thread seal, or other irregular shaped seal/gasket.
Crinkled Graphite Tape(without PSA) is also the material for making die-formed graphite rings
