Non-Asbestos Sheeting

NON-ASBESTOS SHEETING

Non-asbestos sheeting is made from Kevlar aramid fiber and non-organic fibers that are blended with different polymers depending on the application. It contains no asbestos.

Non-asbestos sheeting is ideal for use as a general service gasket in the process industries.  It is also commonly used as a roofing material thanks to its excellent insulation characteristics and resistance to impacts, rain, water, UV light and ozone degradation.
 

PROPERTIES

When blended with different polymers, non-asbestos sheeting offers a range of performance characteristics.

  • Nitrile rubber offers fuel and oil resistance
  • Graphite coated provides non-stick and steam resistance
  • PTFE (Teflon) offers excellent chemical resistance
  • EPDM is suitable for potable water applications

Depending on the polymer blend, non-asbestos sheeting can handle a range of materials.

  • Mild inorganic and organic acids
  • Water
  • Brine
  • General chemicals
  • Neutral solutions
  • Vegetable oils
  • Synthetic oils
  • Petroleum and derivatives
  • Refrigerants
  • Air and industrial gases
  • Diluted alkalis
  • Aliphatic solvents
