Style 5507 Inorganic Fiber Gasketing

Inorganic fibers with EPDM binder

Garlock® Inorganic Fiber Gasketing offers excellent thermal stability with minimal weight loss, reduced creep relaxation and improved torque retention. The inorganic fibers have excellent thermal and oxidation resistance, withstanding a continuous operating temperature of up to 550° F (290° C), and maximum spike of 800° F (425° C).

Features and Benefits

  • Tighter seal
  • Excellent thermal stability with minimal weight loss
  • Reduced creep relaxation and improved torque retention provide optimal sealability
  • Temperature resistant
  • Withstand a continuous operating temperature of up to 550° F (290° C), and maximum spike of 800° F (425° C)
  • IFG® 5500 has passed the Garlock Fire Test and is ABS Fire-Safe Type Approved.
