Displaying excellent sealing characteristics, Flexicarb leverages the unique heat resistance of Thermiculite® to withstand temperature extremes from cryogenics through elevated levels.
Flexicarb is an exfoliated graphite material with standard grades at 95% to 98% and a nuclear grade available at 99.5%. It can be supplied with an inorganic passivating inhibitor to increase its oxidation and corrosion resistance. Recent experiences and tests have shown that Flexicarb will oxidize over time. Care should be taken when considering the use of Flexicarb foil for applications above 330°C (650°F).
Note: Flexicarb RGS1, RGS3 and RGS4 are the equivalents for Flexicarb ST, SR and NR which are the brand names used in the US. We can also offer Novus TI and Novus FI please refer to datasheets section for more information.
