Performance and Reliability of Non-Asbestos Gasketing Materials 830218
Some non-asbestos gasketing materials have proven to be equal to (and some superior to) asbestos reinforced gasketing materials under severe service conditions. Proper selection of materials for performance/cost considerations given the service requirements is essential. Data comparing non-asbestos gasket materials to conventional products over a wide range of simulated application parameters will be presented. Emphasis will be placed on data and test conditions that can be used to predict functionality and reliability of gasket materials.
