Plates Type METAGRAPH – L
Plates made of pure expanded graphite with excellent chemical stability and excellent resistance to creep reinforced with smooth metallic insert.
Suitable for heavy duty applications with low loads of torque, good for high temperature and pressure cycles or thermal-mechanical shock, steam, chemically aggressive fluids except strong oxidizing agents.
