Style 6500 Hochdruck is a multilayer high strength sheet material using .020” thick layers of high quality graphite foil and .002” thick 316 stainless steel foil. Depending on the sheet thickness required, several layers of graphite and stainless steel foil are joined together using a unique binding process. These layers are fused together without the use of glues or adhesives that can burn out or delaminate at elevated temperatures. This material has a very high compressive strength, high bursting safety and high rigidity.
Style 6500 has outstanding durability and excellent sealing capabilities in high temperature and pressure applications. It can easily be fabricated with normal gasket cutting tools.
Style 6500 is available in sheets and pre-cut gaskets.

Style 6300R is a graphite sheet manufactured from 97% pure graphite flakes with a .002” thick stainless steel sheet laminated between the flexible graphite layers. The result is a mechanically stronger sheet with better handling characteristics, processed without resins, binders, or other additives that would limit corrosion resistance and high-temperature applications. Style 6300R is permanently resilient, non-hardening, naturally lubricious, and has an infinite shelf life. Flexible graphite has the seal of approval by companies handling corrosive, volatile, or flammable media.
Style 6300R is an ideal sealing material for high-temperature applications. It is also resistant to attack by most molten metals, corrosive chemicals, and caustics. Style 6300R is still an easy material to fabricate even with the Stainless Steel laminate.
Style 6300R is available in sheets and pre-cut gaskets

Thermiculite® 815 is a high temperature sealing material based on a blend of thermally and chemically exfoliated vermiculite. It offers benefits compared to both graphite and mica based sheet sealing materials. As a silicate based mineral vermiculite is free from the oxidation problems suffered by graphite in elevated temperature service in the presence of atmospheric or product stream oxygen. Unlike mica based sealing materials proprietary processing results in exfoliation of the vermiculite crystals producing a gas tight structure. The re-structured vermiculite is bonded to a 316 tanged stainless core enhancing handling characteristics and bow-out resistance.
Thermiculite 815 is primary designed for use in both standard and non-standard flanged connections in elevated temperature sealing applications where oxidation may be of concern. Typical applications and industries include incinerator combustion flues, mineral acid production, metal and ore processing, propulsion and genset exhaust systems, titanium dioxide production, steam and gas turbines.
The maximum temperature for Thermiculite 815 sheet is 1800°F (982°C). The maximum pressure is 2900 psig.
Thermiculite is available in sheet and pre-cut gaskets.
