The Benefits of Graphite Head Gaskets
Graphite head gaskets are extremely reliable and are one of the most popular choices of head gaskets in the automotive industry. Our graphite flake sheets are capable of withstanding significantly aggressive chemical environments. Their performance can, also, go unaffected in high pressure environments. All our metal inserted materials are built in a fashion to function at even higher pressures. Under reducing environments, pure graphite is accomplished to handle up to 5000 F. Graphite head gasket material is incredibly popular due to the fact that it can provide thermal stability, and low creep relaxation. Standard grades for graphite gaskets range between 95% and 98%. The material is known to be an extremely conformable material which gives it the capacity to flow into flange surface imperfections. It also possesses low permeability, and holds excellent resistance to chemicals. As a result, making it a perfect choice as a sealing material.
