- Kammprofile gaskets are used by the chemical and petrochemical industry, as well as in power stations and refineries, on both standard pipe-work and specialist applications, e.g. shell and tube heat exchangers, etc.
- Kammprofile gaskets offer outstanding flexibility and recovery, assuring seal integrity under pressure and temperature fluctuations, flange rotation, bolt stress relaxation and creep.
- Depending on kind of metal used, Kammprofile gaskets can be used for all media from pH 0 to 14. Material properties Kammprofile gaskets are constructed from a precision serrated metallic core with soft gasket materials – either flexible graphite or expanded PTFE -bonded to either side.
