Alapin Gasket Material
Alapin is a top-quality, industrial-grade compressed non-asbestos fibre (CNAF) gasket material. It combines mineral fibres with genuine DuPont Kevlar Aramid Fibres, bonded together with Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR). The result is a gasket sheet with outstanding flexibility, compressibility, sealing performance, and recovery.
Alapin's temperature resistance depends on factors like pressure and the sealed media.
Generally, it can handle continuous temperatures of up to 340°C for non-steam applications, with short-term peaks of 375°C.
For sealing steam, it reliably performs up to 255°C.
Alapin Industrial Gasket Material is compatible with a wide range of substances, including water, steam, oils, fuels, kerosene, salt solutions, natural gas, lubricants, refrigerants, and moderate organic and inorganic acids. Its versatility ensures it suits diverse applications.
Medium Sealing Pressures
Alapin can handle a maximum operating pressure of 12 MPa, up to about 170°C (with reduced capacity at higher temperatures). Refer to the Alapin pT Diagram for specific pressure-temperature guidelines.
Excellent Sealing Characteristics
Alapin exhibits exceptional sealing traits, including a density of 2 g/cm³, compressibility of 10% (ASTM F 36), recovery of 55% (ASTM F 36), and more. It maintains its integrity even when exposed to various substances, making it a reliable choice.
