Asbestos

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Non-Asbestos

Non-Asbestos Fibre materials are so-called because they fill the gap in the range of gasket materials previously occupied by asbestos. Asbestos, although now known to be a dangerous material, had excellent heat resistance properties, which is why it was utilised so widely in high temperature applications. When asbestos was outlawed, replacement materials were needed; and so these asbestos-free, or non-asbestos, materials were developed to perform the same function, but without the corresponding danger to human health.

These materials are now commonly comprised of aramid fibre (Kevlar) and non-organic fibres, which are in turn blended with different polymers to meet different applications: most commonly nitrile rubber, for fuel and oil resistance. These materials can also be graphite coated for non-stick and steam resistance, mixed with PTFE for excellent chemical resistance, or with EPDM for potable water applications.
