James Walker® Gaskets & Jointings > Non-asbestos sheet jointings



  Non-asbestos sheet jointings
Fluolion® Integra Blue
DESCRIPTION
General purpose PTFE-based sheet jointing that is specially stabilised and mechanically treated to improve multidirectional strength, combat creep
and improve resilience for flange jointing duties.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
Flanged joints on plant that handles aggressive fluid media, especially where hygiene is top priority – such as in the pharmaceutical, food and electronic industries. It is especially suited to applications with weak or lightly loaded flanges, as well as standard flange duties.
 
PRIME FEATURES
• Highly recommended for duties with caustic alkalis and strong acids, at elevated temperatures and moderate concentrations.
• High compressibility for effective sealing on lightly loaded flanges.
• Outstanding resistance to a very wide range of chemical media.
• Inherently clean, non-toxic and non-tainting.
• Can be used at cryogenic temperatures.
 
SPECIFICATIONS
• Complies with requirements of FDA Regulations for food use.
• WRAS approved for use with hot and cold potable water up to 85°C.
