SIGRAFLEX® MF (SGL Carbon patent) is composed of expanded graphite sheets impregnated with corrosion inhibitor, purity > 99.85% and smooth foils in AISI 316L steel of 0.05mm.
The outer part of the gasket is covered with a layer of modified PTFE type Dyneon 1700 sp 0.05mm.
The anchoring between the various layers of materials takes place without the use of adhesives or the like.
Both internally and externally, a reinforcing eyelet in AISI 316L steel is applied.
This gasket, ensuring the maximum degree of sealing, is particularly suitable for use on toxic, flammable, polluting and carcinogenic substances that require the reduction of fugitive emissions, plants with Fire Safe requirements and prohibition of product contamination.

  • Ideal for use at high temperatures and pressures and with R45 substances
  • High compressive strength value
  • Graphite with a purity of 99.85%
  • FDA certificate for food use
