Graphite Seals

Graphite provides an important sealing solution in situations where a tight seal is required.  As one of the most versatile sealing materials, graphite offers the following important characteristics:

  • Self lubricating

  • Low coefficient of friction and thermal expansion

  • Chemical, corrosion and oxidisation resistance

  • Suitable for high temperature applications including excessive temperature fluctuations

  • Strong and with good heat conductivity 

Suitable for use in environments that are especially corrosive, typical applications include:

  • Pumps – chemical, refinery, water

  • Steam joints

  • Mixer or agitator seals

  • Cryogenics
