KLINGERgraphite - sealing tape
 
KLINGERgraphite consists of pure graphite expanded by a special process that produces a flexible
material which fits perfectly to the unevennesses of the sealing face.
 
Chemical resistance:
to almost all fluids such as acids, alkalis, solvents, greases, oils, gas, steam and water.
Exceptions: high-oxidizing fluids such as concentrated nitric acid, potassium
chlorate, permanganate solutions and chloric acid.
Details are given in the resistance table.
 
Temperature resistance:
– in oxidizing atmospheres from - 200 °C to +450 °C
– in reduction or inert atmospheres up to +300 °C
– excellent resistance to temperature fluctuations
– high thermal conductivity
– no hot or cold flows, even at high temperatures and surface loads
– flexibility over the whole temperature range
 
Other features:
– excellent sliding properties, max. 40m/s
– no adhesion of the sealing area
– self-lubricating, therefore no wear on moving parts
– high corrosion resistance
– no swelling or shrinkage under influence of media
– no ageing
– easy to work with
– not detrimental to health
 
Type 1:
KLINGERgraphite sealing tape, corrugated Fields of application:
Universal packing for use in pumps and fittings. The tape is wound around the shaft or spindle on the
spot and compressed to a packing with the help of the gland.
All spindles and shafts can be reliably sealed with only a few tape widths. Ask for our mounting
instructions for packings.
Available in roles of 12 m length, packed in boxes, together with the mounting instructions.
Material thickness: 0.5 mm
Tape width: 6, 10, 15, 20, 25 mm
 
Type 2:
KLINGERgraphite sealing tape, corrugated, self-adhesive Fields of applications:
The self-adhesive tape is ideal for sealing big flanges and sealing surfaces. The self-adhesive back fixes
the tape on the sealing surface during mounting.
The required amount of adhesive is very small. It carbonises at higher temperatures.
Available in roles of 12 m length, packed in boxes, together with the mounting instructions.
Material thickness: 0.5 mm
Tape width: 6, 10, 15, 20, 25 mm
