Ridderflex has a stock of various grades of graphite sheeting material and graphite foil. With our digital cutting machine, we cut the gasket sheet into universal or customised gaskets.
A graphite gasket is flame-retardant and has a high chemical resistance. The material is mainly applied in the (petro) chemical industry.
Graphite gaskets: universal sizes and custom-made
We produce both universal and custom-made graphite gaskets or parts. Universal gaskets are produced according to DIN, ASA and ANSI sizes. Your custom-made gaskets can be produced according to your drawing or model.
We supply the following products of graphite or graphite with a 316SS wire mesh insert:
*Foil is not available in graphite with a 316SS wire mesh insert.
Graphite gaskets in various materials
Graphite products can be supplied in various materials: standard graphite or graphite with a 316SS wire mesh insert. In the table below we explain the differences.
This material is flame-retardant, flexible and resistant to aging. It can endure large pressure differences. The gaskets can be applied if a high temperature resistance and chemical resistance is required. Therefore, these are mainly applied as (soft) flange seals in valves, pumps or degassing systems.
Graphite with a 316SS wire mesh insert
This type of gasket sheet has one or multiple layers 316SS wire mesh. Gaskets of this material have a high temperature resistance. They also have a good chemical resistance. These properties make the gaskets perfectly suitable for application in steam systems. For example in the process industry and the (petro)chemical industry.
We excel in the production of custom-made plastic, rubber and polyurethane products.
