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.
