Does Garlock have data on Radiation Resistance?
We have conducted gamma radiation tests on our compressed sheet Styles 3000, 3200, 3400, 3700, 5500, 5507, 9800, 9850, and 9920. These tests indicate that our compressed non-asbestos styles will handle a total exposure of approximately 5 x 10E7 rads of gamma radiation. GYLON® Styles 3510 and 3545 have been tested, but are only resistant to approximately 1 x 10E5 rads. Test results are available upon request.
