The new SIGRAFLEX OXR yarn is unique in many respects. It has been specifically developed for high-temperature applications and combines the advantages of graphitized PAN yarns with those of a proprietary coating to enhance its temperature resistance. It furthermore fulfills the requirements of packing manufacturers for low friction and high thermal conductivity.
The purity of the yarn is excellent as well: with regard to carbon content it stands at ≥ 99.5%. The yarn also exhibits low sulfur, fluorine and chlorine content. This is a decisive advantage for our customers, since SIGRAFLEX OXR yarn is the only yarn product on the market that meets the requirement of Shell specification 85/204 for graphite.
SIGRAFLEX OXR Yarn, technical data sheet
SIGRAFLEX APX2 yarn is the best foil yarn on the market regarding oxidation resistance. Made from flexible expanded natural graphite SIGRAFLEX APX2 foil, which is already established in the sealing market and provides maximum protection from oxidation, and reinforced with Inconel® wire, the yarn allows the braider to produce a high-temperature resistant and high-purity packing with outstanding mechanical properties.
Our customers benefit from our broad portfolio of SIGRAFLEX packing yarns, graphite foils, foil tapes and sheets – no matter if they process those into braided packing, die-formed rings or gaskets. For your application our materials provide a specific solution, too.
