Durlon® 8900 is a premium grade compressed non-asbestos sheet gasket material for service conditions to 496°C (925°F) and continuous operating temperatures of -73ºC to 400°C (-100ºF to 752°F) or 13.8 MPa (2,000 psi). It is suitable for water, saturated steam, superheated steam, oil, mild alkalis and acids, hydrocarbons and solvents.
Durlon® 8900 was specially developed to withstand high temperature and pressure application with good chemical resistance. It contains high strength fibers and graphite fillers bonded with high performance nitrile (NBR) synthetic rubber. Rubber level was optimized to obtain a flexible sheet with good cutting properties without compromising on physical properties at high temperature.

Note: ASTM properties based on 1/16″ sheet thickness except ASTM F38, which is based on 1/32″ sheet thickness. This is a general guide only and should not be the sole means of accepting or rejecting this material. The data listed here falls within the normal range of product properties but should not be used to establish specification limits nor used alone as the basis of design.
