Preventing flange face corrosion
The correct choice of gasket can have a major influence on the costs associated with the onset of corrosion, disruptions to plant operation and safety risks. Corriculite’s performance has been compared with graphite and mica in corrosion applications, such as seawater and hydrocarbon services, and validated using a number of benchmark tests. Results demonstrated that Corriculite significantly outperforms current industry standard gasket materials, providing corrosion resistance and sealing integrity which exceeds the stringent emission requirements.

GASKET LEAKAGE TEST: CORRICULITE™ VS MICA
Corriculite’s sealing properties were tested through a number of industry tests. In this video, the gasket leakage test was carried out to compare the sealing performance of Corriculite and mica. Watch the video to see the results.
