Style 240 Nitrile Bound Gasket Sheet

This sheet Packing offers superior performance with the widest range of applications available in one gasket material. This nitrile rubber bound sheet gasketing, composed of chemically stable and heat resistant fibers provides outstanding creep resistance at high temperatures and high load to give maximum safety, torque retention and sealing characteristics. Chloride content below 100 ppm reduces flange corrosion which, when combined with the nonstick properties of this material, lowers maintenance and down-time.

This sheet Packing is intended for all general mill uses.

compatible with the following applications: Gases, water, steam, inorganic salt solutions, organic acids, alkalies, alaphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, oils, greases, heat transfer oil, and refrigerants.

To determine suitability for use in a specific application, consult the factory. Sheet Packing should not be used in the following applications: Halides, nitric or sulphuric acids or strong oxidizers.
