Klinger graphite PSM / AS is laminated with a 0.1mm thickness tanged stainless steel 316 insert. The insert aids material handling properties and also increases the blow-out resistance. The insert is mechanically bonded to the graphite and does not rely on adhesive. PSM/AS is finished with an anti-stick finish developed to aid removal from the flange even after use at elevated temperatures.
PSM is fire-safe to API 6FB
Klinger graphite based gasket materials are suitable for use at temperature from -200°C up to 460°C and offers resistance against a broad range of chemicals.
