FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Demand for high performance gaskets causes Canadian industrial sealing solutions manufacturer to extend product line.

Belleville, Ontario Canada – February 1, 2016

Triangle Fluid Controls Ltd., Canada’s leading manufacturer of industrial PTFE and semi-metallic gasketing products announced the launch of their premium grade compressed non-asbestos gasket material, able to withstand higher temperature and pressure ratings – Durlon® 8900. Durlon® 8900 can withstand the harshest conditions, up to 496°C (925°F), a pressure of 138 bar (2000 psi), and has been thoroughly tested passing the API 607, 6th Edition Fire Test with zero leakage.

“This product is extending the Durlon family of compressed rubber-fiber material’s upper temperature range beyond where traditional carbon fibre products cannot effectively reach”, says Mike Shorts, Vice President & General Manager. “This will fill the niche segment for moderately-high temperature applications in industries such as Power Generation, Petrochemical Refining, and Chemical Processing that require premium sealability and performance characteristics.”

This premium grade gasket material contains high strength fibres and graphite fillers bonded with high performance nitrile (NBR) synthetic rubber. The rubber level in the Durlon® 8900 was optimized to obtain a flexible sheet with good cutting properties without compromising physical properties in extreme heat and harsh conditions.

“We have received many requests for this type of product to be developed based on the performance customers have experienced using the Durlon brand. By bringing this new product to market, we are fulfilling these requests while enhancing our global competitiveness.”

Durlon® 8900 will be globally available March 2016 with common thicknesses in stock. To learn more about Durlon Sealing Solutions or Triangle Fluid Controls, contact Mike Shorts at 1.613.968.1100, email mike@trianglefluid.com, or visit www.trianglefluid.com.
