DESCRIPTION

A compressed non-asbestos sheet material based on aramid fibre and recycled material, with a nitrile rubber binder system It is classed as a medium quality, cost effective product.

SERVICE

General purpose material suitable for low temperature applications including: hot and cold water, low pressure steam, oils, fuels, gases and a wide range of general chemicals.

NOT TO BE USED FOR HIGH PRESSURE STEAM APPLICATIONS

Max recommended temperature : OPERATING 150°C
Max recommended temperature : OPERATING STEAM 150°C
Max recommended pressure : 4MPa / 40 BAR / 600 PSI

 

These temperature and pressure guides cannot necessarily be used simultaneously and may not apply to all thicknesses. The operating temperature for non-asbestos sheet materials is related to the thickness of the material. Thinner materials offer better temperature and pressure properties.
