Solution for Sealing at Temperatures Over 1,000°F

Over the years our industry has created innovative and reliable solutions for a wide range of extreme sealing challenges. However, the most glaring hole in solution options has been for that small subset of sealing applications over 1,000⁰F.

To meet these needs, ERIKS Netherlands has conducted a multi-year research and development project. This project culminated in the launch of an improved line of Phlogopite mica-based sealing products for spiral wound gaskets, kammprofile gaskets, and sheet gaskets. These products have superb chemical resistance, proven sealability that surpasses existing solutions, and excellent response to high-temperature thermal cycling up to 1,800⁰F.
