Klinger washers are more commonly known as compressed fibre washers. However, they were pioneered by Klinger, the world’s leading developer of sealing products, hence their namesake. Interestingly, before Klinger washers, similar products were available which were asbestos-based, but the compressed fibre used in Klinger washers, is completely free of asbestos. Therefore, 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. For the most part they seal against liquids, gases and solvents and are most popular within industrial and marine applications. For example, diesel engines and oil pipelines. As a result, they are a vital part of many industries.
Can Sustain a High Levels of Pressure
As a matter of fact, 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. In addition, some grades of Klinger washers are able to withstand operating temperatures of 400 degrees celsius. Undeniably, Klinger is an incredibly versatile and robust material. In fact, aramid fibres have no melting point. Even more, they generally don’t even begin to degrade until they reach 500 degrees celsius. Equally important is their resistance to abrasion, non-conductivity and low flammability.
Standard and Bespoke Measurements Available
Another key benefit is the number of dimensions and thicknesses available, both in standard and bespoke measurements to suit your particular requirements. Furthermore, the synthetic nature of Klinger washers means that we are able to manufacture them in any dimension or thickness you might require.
