Technical Data Sheet MATERIAL PROPERTIES*:

Thermiculite ® 815 High temperature, chemically resistant sheet sealing material comprising exfoliated vermiculite reinforced with a tanged stainless steel core. Service: Thermiculite® 815 is comprised of a tanged 316 Stainless Steel core faced with a high performance vermiculite based sealing material. The metallic core provides improved blow out resistance, handling and cutting characteristics. Thermiculite® 815 is suitable for use in a wide range of sealing applications. The material is capable of effecting a high integrity seal at extremes of temperature. Typical applications involve sealing superheated high pressure steam, strong oxidising media and high temperature gas & exhaust systems. Maximum Recommended temperature: 1050°C (1920°F) Maximum service pressure: 20MPa (200 bar; 2900 psi) Materials: Facing material: Thermiculite® Reinforcement: Tanged 316 Stainless Steel, UNS S31600 Bond Type: Mechanical Note: This product is NOT intended for, and is NOT suitable for use as the facing for Flexitallic Flexpro™ gaskets.
