Klinger washers are often referred to as compressed fibre washers, and are so named as they were pioneered by Klinger, the world’s leading developer of sealing products. Before Klinger washers, similar products were available which were asbestos-based, but the compressed fibre used in Klinger washers is completely free of asbestos, making it the ideal material for the modern age.
A Vital Part of Many Industries
Modern day compressed fibre washers consist of a mixture of aramid glass and rubber fibres, and are often used to seal against liquids, gases and solvents. In practical terms, they are most often used in industrial and marine applications, including diesel engines and oil pipelines, making them a vital part of many industries.
Can Sustain a High Levels of Pressure
Compressed fibre offers many unique properties, including the ability to sustain high levels of pressure, air, water, chemical and salt resistance, and superb load bearing properties. With some grades of Klinger washers being able to withstand operating temperatures of 400 degrees celsius, it’s indisputable that this is an incredibly versatile and robust material. In fact, aramid fibres have no melting point, and often don’t even begin to degrade until they reach 500 degrees celsius. They’re also resistant to abrasion, are non-conductive and offer low flammability.
Standard and Bespoke Measurements Available
A number of dimensions and thicknesses are available, both in standard and bespoke measurements to suit your particular requirements. The synthetic nature of Klinger washers means that we are able to manufacture them in any dimension or thickness you might require, and we would be more than happy to help discuss your requirements.

Often known as high temperature fibre washers, they are named after their pioneer, Klinger, the world’s leading developer of sealing products. It is made from compressed fibre and is a much safer alternative to the asbestos-based products that were previously used. Made from a mixture of aramid glass and rubber fibres, the Klinger washer is often used as a seal against liquids, gases and solvents. In terms of applications, the washers are commonly used in industrial and marine applications such as diesel engines and oil pipelines.
They can withstand against high levels of pressure, air, water, chemicals, high temperatures and salt, so alongside its outstanding load bearing properties, can be used in a vast range of harsh environments. They have no melting point, and are non-conductive, making them extremely versatile.
A wide range of dimensions and thicknesses are available depending on the purposes for the component. For more individual requirements, our bespoke service is on hand to create custom made washers made to specific measurements.
