The data quoted above are valid for the material "as delivered" without any additional treatment and with sufficient surface pressure, e.g. according to DIN 28 090ff. In view of the multiplicity of possible gasket designs as well as installation and operating conditions, definitive conclusions cannot be drawn for all applications regarding the behavious in a sealing joint. For this reason, we do not give any warranty for technical data. They do not represent warranted properties. If you have any doubt, please contact us and specify exact operating conditions.
1)Very much higher pressure values are possibly permitted for flanges with projections and recesses or grooves and tongues. Please consult us in individual cases, specifying exact sealing conditions.
2)Use at temperatures below -50 C is possible when surface pressure does not drop below approx. 15 N/mm in liquids or 30 N/mm in gases (internal pressure must be considered). In addition, the gasket must not show bending stress or reversed bending stress. At temperatures below -100 C, operating pressures may not be greater than the max. values given for -100 C.

At temperatures > 50 C, tests under conditions of use must be conducted in the case of strong acids or alkaline solutions, such as hydrochloric acid or potassium hydroxide solution. This material is not resistant to nitric acid > 20 %. In this case, we recommend the use of gaskets made of REINZOFLON 100 (filled PTFE); please refer to Technical Data Sheet TDS 480.
