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



  Non-asbestos sheet jointings
Fluolion® Integra Blue
DESCRIPTION
Specially stabilised PTFE sheet material, mechanically treated to improve multi-directional strength, combat creep and improve resilience for flange jointing duties. It was previously designated Fluolion® Integra.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
Flanged joints on plant that handles extremely aggressive fluid media. Also where hygiene is top priority – such as in the pharmaceutical, food and electronic industries.
 
PRIME FEATURES
• Highly recommended for duties with strong acids and oxidising agents at elevated temperatures and all concentrations.
• Outstanding resistance to a very wide range of chemical media.
• Inherently clean, non-toxic and non-tainting.
• Can be used at cryogenic temperatures.
• Displays compressibility and recovery characteristics close to those of many non-asbestos fibre jointings.

SPECIFICATIONS
• Complies with requirements of FDA Regulations for food use, and USP 25, Class V, classification of plastics for pharmaceutical service.
• WRAS approved for use with hot and cold potable water up to 85°C.
