For many years, gaskets, gasket materials, and custom CNC conversion have been at the core of our company. When it comes to compressed fibre, asbestos replacement gaskets, and materials, we choose Klinger® gasket materials.
Klinger® materials have been developed since 1886 and are known for their quality and dependability. They are available in a variety of grades to handle a wide range of applications and situations. Aerospace, chemical, petrochemical, power generation, oil, and gas are all common sectors, but the qualities provided make them equally suitable for sealing applications in practically every industry and condition.
We can convert all sheeting materials into conventional flange gaskets, customized washers, and seals, or custom forms and profiles to your specifications using our CNC profile cutting equipment. Please email us with the following information to assist us to evaluate which Klinger® gasket material would be appropriate for your application and to allow us to give you the best advice:
If you’re still not sure whether Klinger® material is best for your project, there’s a comparison table and chemical resistance chart at the bottom of this page that should help you decide. Many of our Klinger® gasket materials may be ordered online through PAR Direct. Full sheets and quarter-cut pieces are available for purchase, with free UK mainland shipping for purchases of £50 (ex VAT) or more.

Our most economical grade manufactured from a blend of aramid, carbon and glass fibres. These are held together with an NBR rubber binder to provide resistance to oils, fuels and hydrocarbons. WRAS approved for use with potable water. Temperature range of up to +180°C continuous, +350°C maximum. Max. pressure of 50 bar.
C4400 is based on aramid fibres combined with a nitrile rubber binder. This creates a general purpose sealing material commonly used in the automotive and aerospace sectors. It also has good resistance to oils, fuels and hydrocarbons. Temperature range of up to +200°C continuous, +400°C maximum. Max. pressure of 100 bar.
A premium grade material manufactured from synthetic and glass fibres bound together with NBR rubber. The material displays good resistance to creep, steam, and a wide range of chemicals. WRAS approved for use with potable water. Temperature range of up to +200°C continuous, +400°C maximum. Max. pressure of 100 bar.
Carbon fibre based with a nitrile rubber binder. The carbon fibre increases its resistance to both steam and alkaline based applications and enables it to operate at a higher continuous temperature than other compressed fibre options. Temperature range of up to +220°C continuous, +400°C maximum. Max. pressure of 100 bar.
C8200 is specifically designed to be used in aggressive chemical environments. The blend of fibres are combined with an acid resistant binder, generating resistances to most mineral acids, alkalis, ketones, aldehydes and refrigerants. Temperature range of up to +150°C continuous, +200°C maximum. Max. pressure of 60 bar.
Manufactured from impregnated paper, Statite is frequently used for low bolt load applications in the automotive industry due to its resistance to both oils and fuels. Typically used when the additional strength offered by compressed fibre is not a requirement. Temperature range of up to +100°C continuous. Max pressure of 8 bar.
Expanded graphite with synthetic fibres. The inclusion of graphite allows it to withstand higher combined continuous temperatures and pressures than typical compressed fibre materials. It also improves its flexibility and resistance to steam. Temperature range of up to +220°C continuous, +400°C maximum. Max pressure of 100 bar.
A high temperature material. Due to the use of a HNBR binder, it maintains its flexibility even after continued use at elevated temperatures. It’s is both FDA and WRAS approved for use in food contact and potable water applications. Temperature range of up to +350°C continuous, +400°C maximum. Max pressure of 100 bar.
Pure exfoliated graphite with an adhesive bound stainless steel foil insert. This improves both load bearing and handling while maintaining resistances to steam, temperature, and most chemical media. Temperature range of up to +460°C continuous. Max pressure of 140 bar.
Made from pure exfoliated graphite with the inclusion of a mechanically fixed tanged stainless steel insert. The insert improves blow-out resistance, making it a common option in the chemical and petrochemical sectors. Temperature range of up to +460°C continuous. Max pressure of 150 bar.
MILAM is a flame retardant, mica based material reinforced with a stainless steel tanged insertion. It is able to withstand heated, dry gas applications and also displays excellent resistance to chemicals and embrittlement. Temperature range of up to +900°C continuous. Max pressure of 5 bar.
A premium grade, silicon carbide filled PTFE gasket material. This heavy duty material is fire safe, ideal for use with chemicals, and provides excellent sealing at elevated temperatures and pressures. FDA approved for food contact applications. Temperature range of up to +260°C continuous. Max pressure of 150 bar.
Manufactured from modified PTFE and specifically used with delicate flanges or in low bolt load applications. Top-Chem 2003 is ideally suited for sealing glass lined equipment and is FDA approved for food contact applications. Temperature range of up to +200°C continuous, +260°C maximum. Max pressure of 100 bar.
Pure expanded PTFE. Soft-Chem is compressible, has excellent chemical resistance, and low bolt load requirements make it suitable for irregular flanges. FDA approved for food contact applications. Temperature range of up to +200°C continuous, +250°C maximum. Max pressure of 60 bar.
