KLINGER Graphite Laminate SLS
SLS is suitable for weak flanges at high temperatures. Consists of exfoliated layers of graphite bonded to a stainless steel insert.
KLINGER Graphite SLS
High temperature range 842F (450C). Suitable for universal use especially in combination with weak flanges and for sealing liquid. Equivalent to Garlock Graph-Lock 3125SS.
Pressure/temperature graphs for determining the suitability of a gasket material in a known environment. However, chemical compatibility must also be considered.

In area 1 the gasket material is suitable using common installment practices subject to chemical compatibility.
In area 2 appropriate measures are necessary for installation of the gasket to ensure maximum performance.
In area 3 do not install gaskets in these applications without research and support.
The ability of a gasket to make and maintain a seal depends not only on the style and quality of the gasket material, but also on medium being sealed, the flange design, the amount of pressure applied to the gasket by bolts, and how the gasket is assembled onto the flanges and tightened. These factors are beyond the manufacturer’s control.
