What is Klinger UK?
Klinger has always been known as an excellent material to make gaskets from, which is why we are proud to stock it here at Stephens Gaskets. Often known as a compressed fibre gasket, a Klinger gasket is manufactured using a specifically measured blend of rubber fibres and aramid glass. This combination gives the gaskets a malleable consistency but still remains waterproof and highly resistant to a wide range of materials and environments. The material is commonly used in the marine and oil industries.
Purpose of Klinger Gaskets
Made out of the well renowned Klinger material, a Klinger gasket is a small component used to implement inside a device or vehicle to fill a gap. When two parts of a component fit together, there is often a gap which cannot be filled – there will never be a perfectly fitted sealed gap. While in many environments this ill-fitting gap will not cause any problems, in types of machinery which process different substances and chemicals, it is important to abolish the risk of seepage or leakage in to and out of the gap. In order to make sure that no gas or liquid can get inside or escape outside of the two conjoined parts, the Klinger gasket can be placed into the gap, therefore acting as a barrier. By using a gasket, you are reducing the risk of damage or safety problems with the project and can rest easy knowing the inside of the compartment is protected.
The benefits of using Klinger
Not only is Klinger extremely waterproof and malleable, the material offers incredible resistance which allows it to be used across a wide range of applications. It is resistant to air, water, fire and many common chemicals making it a very reliable gasket material. In addition to this, Klinger is a wholly non-conductive material and can withstand temperatures well in excess of 400 degrees Celsius. The combination of these properties make Klinger Gaskets almost indestructible.
