GrafTech GRAFOIL® GHE Standard Fluid Sealing Laminate, Metal Reinforced
Categories: Carbon; Graphite

Material Notes: GRAFOIL® Grade GHE laminate is made with GTB flexible graphite mechanically bonded to both faces of a 316 or 316L stainless steel tang metal insert. Surface identifiable, the laminate is branded with the GRAFOIL® grade and source guarantee. Grade GHE is suitable for standard industrial fluid sealing applications as well as applications in: chemical, petrochemical, refinery, steam service, cryogenic, and ASME class 150 & 300 flanges. While maintaining an effective seal, GRAFOIL® material exhibits virtually no creep relaxation. As a result, the need for periodic bolt tightening is greatly reduced. Laminate Construction: GRAFOIL® Grade GTB ? 0.004" thick (prior to tanging) 316 or 316L stainless steel (per ASTM A-240) ? GRAFOIL® Grade GTB
