A quality compressed sheet gasket material for use in process industries including pulp and paper, power, petrochemical as well as general industry where a “white” gasket material is often required such as food and beverage, pharmaceutical and plastics. For services such as water, steam, air inert gases, alcohols, dilute acids, alkalis ammonia and many other liquids and gases. Durlon® 8600 exhibits good compressibility and recovery, sealability, flexibility and cutting characteristics. A release agent on both sides ensures good anti-stick properties.
Durlon® 8600 contains high-strength aramid and inorganic fibres bonded with high-grade SBR rubber.
