Fibre Jointing Rolls
ASG offers a wide range of non-metallic materials in roll form from a number of material manufacturers and suppliers, a number of which are produced and supplied for specific or specialist applications. One such range of products on offer from our vast catalogue are fibre jointing rolls, which consists of a varied choice of material types each with its own unique properties to meet particular application demands and environments. Each type of fibre jointing insulation material is manufactured in various roll sizes and thicknesses as standard, however as we carry out all our conversion on-site, we can cut these down to smaller-sized rolls or sheets upon request. Many of the rolls supplied by ASG can be supplied either plain or laminated with one of our many self-adhesives or foils.
What is a Fibre Jointing Roll?
Materials are often taken in roll form as they give the customer and end-user the flexibility to be able to cut their own sheets, strips, gaskets, washers, etc out as and when they are required. Most people will instantly choose sponge or rubber when looking for a compressible material for sealing and gasketing applications, however in many cases, a ‘fibre’ based material could also be an option. Fibre jointing material is made of fibre strands held together with a resin, different fibres can be used to determine the gaskets compressibility, temperature range and strength.
Why use Fibre Jointing Roll?
With a raised awareness of environmental and health & safety issues, using the right type of gaskets and sealing materials has become crucial for many industries to ensure harmful chemicals and emissions are kept contained. Fibre jointing materials are manufactured in a variety of types, using different fibre and binder compositions in order to meet an array of temperature, compression, insulating and chemical resistance properties. Fibre jointing rolls generally have excellent resistance to chemicals and oils together with a high-temperature range and tensile strength, making them suitable for many industries.
Grades of Fibre Jointing Rolls Available
Betaflex is a cellulose-based fibre material, which is made using a nitrile binder giving it excellent tensile strength, low compressibility, good elastic recovery and erosion resistance. Betaflex is used widely in the industrial and automotive sectors due to its resistance to oils. petrol, diesel and even antifreeze.
Ceramic Fibre material is constructed using ceramic fibres and an organic binder, designed for extreme temperature applications reaching up to 1250℃. Ceramic fibre roll materials have excellent strength and flexibility, excellent insulating properties and thermal resistance.
Gasket Paper has a high resistance to petrol, oil and water, therefore often utilised within automotive applications (within fuel/oil pumps and filters). It is not recommended for industrial use due to its lack of resistance to chemicals and heat.
Benefits of Using Fibre Jointing Rolls
Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd offer fibre jointing rolls in a range of materials, thicknesses, colours and finishes. Each material will provide insulation within certain applications and suitable for various levels of protection required. Some of the materials listed above are available in variants that can offer additional properties such as flame retardancy and higher chemical or temperature resistance for use in the most extreme environments.
