|UTEX Style 482 THERMEX™ Gasket Tape and Joint Sealant is manufactured using exfoliated graphite yarns that have been individually wrapped with a reinforcement of Inconel® wire. These yarns are braided to provide a high-strength, high pressure, continuous length of gasketing. This gasketing is surrounded by an additional layer of knitted 300 series stainless steel to provide a dual armor jacketed gasket tape. This tape is also treated with a proprietary mixture of sealing lubricant and sacrificial corrosion inhibitor. This process provides a high-strength, sure-sealing gasket tape that resists blow-out in high temperature flanges and resists galvanic corrosion with stainless flanges.|
|Steam||All steel and some composite pipe flanges||Easy installation|
|Waste Liquids||Fume ducts||Pressure-sensitive adhesive backing|
|Sewage||Lids||High-strength continuous length of gasketing|
|Air||Heat exchangers||Quality construction|
|Gases||Most types of housing and vessel flanges||Zero waste|
Using your Tex-Cut™ Packing Cutter, cut the THERMEX™ packing the length needed.
Remove the pressure sensitive adhesive from the back of the tape and wrap the tape around the flange.
Cross the ends of the joint for a quick and simple gasket sealing.
