Inorganic Fiber Style 5507
Inorganic Fiber Gasketing Material
Inorganic fibers with a EPDM binder
- Tighter Seal
- Inorganic fiber gasketing offers excellent thermal stability with minimal weight loss
- Reduced creep relaxation and improved torque retention provide optimal sealability
- Temperature resistant
- Non-oxidizing fibers withstand a continuous operating temperature of up to 550°F (290°C), and maximum spike of 800°F (425°C)
- IFG® 5500 has passed the Garlock Fire Test and is ABS Fire Safe Type Approved.
- Saturated steam*
- Mild chemicals
- Mild alkalies
*Minimum recommended assembly stress = 4,800psi. Preferred assembly stress = 6,000-10,000psi. Gasket thickness of 1/16" strongly preferred. Retorque the bolts/studs prior to pressurizing the assembly. For saturated steam above 150psig or superheated steam, consult Garlock Engineering.
