Gaskets, Seals, Slade Inc, York Fluid ControlsGaskets, Seals, Slade Inc, York Fluid ControlsReinforced with Flat Metal Leaf Springs (a) of stainless steel, encapsulated in a thick vermiculated graphite foil jacket (b). These metal reinforced graphite strands, Slade’s weaving yarns, are woven into a tough, resilient cloth-like sheet (c).


Gaskets, Seals, Slade Inc, York Fluid ControlsThe flat metal leaf springs at the core of each strand crisscross each other throughout the cloth to impart an enduring resiliency.

The woven sheets are compressed to increase density to form a leak tight gasket sheet.

Advantages

  • Flat metallic leaf springs, jacketed with graphite foil, make this 80” x 80” sheet the most resilient gasket you will need. 

  • Gaskets, Seals, Slade Inc, York Fluid ControlsIt takes physical abuse like no other graphite foil, handling and feeling like tough leather.

  • The metallic spring strands are woven across one another to actuate the gasket through each thermal cycle continually adjusting to expansion and contraction that leaves other compressed gasketing lifeless (d).

  • Pyro-Tex gasket sheet replaces spiral wound gaskets, removingthe spiral leak pathand eliminating the need for a compressing ring to prevent crushing.

  • Pyro-Tex gasket sheet puts flanges back in compliance by filling scratches, pores, and steam cutswith flexible graphite.

  • Each sheet is packed in heavy-duty tubes to eliminate shipping palettesand enable easy storage and handling.
