KLINGER® top-chem 2003 is a modified PTFE gasket material, which – like top-chem 2000 – has excellent chemical resistance against strong acids and alkalis. The two top-chem gasket materials, however, differ in their mechanical properties, as the KLINGER® top-chem 2003 is suitable for medium to low temperatures and bolt loads. The gasket has excellent gas tightness even at low surface loads. For applications where temperature and bolt loads are high we recommend the KLINGER® top-chem 2000 material.
KLINGER® top-chem 2003 is suitable for several applications in the pulp and paper as well as the chemical and petrochemical industries. The gasket material is also well-suited for use in the food and pharmaceutical industries, e.g. in steam applications, oxygen pipes and applications, where the requirements for clean air are high.
KLINGER® top-chem 2003 gasket material has i.e. BAM, DIN-DVGW, TA-Luft and FDA approvals.
