Durlon 8600 Sheet Gasket Material

Application

A quality compressed sheet gasket material for use in process industries including pulp and paper, power, petrochemical as well as general industry where a "white" gasket material is often required such as food and beverage, pharmaceutical and plastics. For services such as water, steam, air inert gasses, alcohols, dilute acids and alkalis ammonia and many other liquids and gases. Exhibits good compressibility and recovery, sealability, flexibility and cutting characteristics. A release agent on both sides ensures good anti-stick properties.

Composition

Durlon® 8600 contains high-strength aramid and inorganic fibers bonded with high-grade SBR rubber.

Anti-Stick Properties

Much effort has gone into improving the anti-stick release agents of all compressed Durlon® products. All Durlon® compressed gasket materials have passed the MIL-G-24696B Navy Adhesion Test (366°F/48 hrs).

Note: ASTM properties based on 1/16" sheet thickness except ASTM F38, which is based on 1/32" sheet thickness. This is a general guide only and should not be the sole means of accepting or rejecting this material. The data listed here falls within the normal range of product properties but should not be used to establish specification limits nor used alone as the basis of design.
