Betaflex Pads

Customers often choose Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd when looking for cut pads. ASG have a network of reputable material suppliers, sourcing materials of the highest quality from across the world for use in specialist sealing, insulating and gasketing applications.

One such material is Betaflex Fibre jointing, manufactured in continuous rolls 1100mm wide and in various thicknesses from 0.25mm, 0.4mm, 0.5mm, 0.8mm up to 1.6mm from which betaflex fibre jointing pads can be cut. Our pads are produced onsite using drawings or measurements provided by our customers, with whom we work closely to ensure the final product is to their exact specification.

Regardless of the size and quantity of Betaflex pads required, one of many presses can be used to manufacture the final product, from one off samples to multiple batch runs. Depending upon the size of fibre jointing pad required, they can be supplied as loosely cut parts, or kiss-cut on rolls, useful where a high quantity is required or for use on fast paced assembly lines - all of which can be supplied laminated with a choice of our many self-adhesives.

    What Are Betaflex Fibre Jointing Pads?

    Betaflex Pads are made from an asbestos-free cellulose based paper with an NBR (Nitrile)binder, this material is recogniseable by its dark grey/black colour. Fibre jointing materials like Betaflex are constructed from fibre strands held together with a resin or binder, creating a strong and compressible material, which can be supplied in pre-cut finished pads or taken in roll and sheet form.

    Our pads can be produced as squares or rectangles with the option of radius corners, and also as circular or oval shaped pads or ‘discs’, in a range of thicknesses. Manufacturing pads in-house even means we can supply them in a plain or self adhesive backed finish.

    Why Use Betaflex Fibre Jointing Pads?

    Betaflex Fibre jointing pads can often be found used in a similar way as a gasket. Choosing the right material when designing gaskets and seals including cut pads has become crucial for industries where they need to ensure harmful chemicals and emissions are kept contained as Health & Safety regulations are tightened.

    Betaflex Fibre Jointing is a high quality material offering low compressibility and good elastic recovery, with seals and pads often being used in industrial sectors where there is a risk of leaks of or exposure to oils, petrols, diesel fuel, water, antifreezes etc which would cause reactions and damage to other materials, resulting in seals failure.

    The Benefits of Using Betaflex Fibre Jointing

    • Can be machined into a range of components
    • Low compressibility
    • Excellent electrical insulating properties
    • Resistance to oil, petrol, fuel, water, antifreezes, etc
    • Short term operating Temperature up to 180°C

    Other Grades of Fibre Jointing Available:

    When choosing ASG for your fibre jointing applications, you are sure to be offered a number of material options, thanks to our network of material manufacturers and suppliers - some of our other popular materials include:

    Ceramic Fibre material is constructed using ceramic fibres and an organic binder, designed for extreme temperature applications reaching up to 1250℃. Ceramic fibre pads have excellent strength and flexibility, excellent insulating properties and thermal resistance.

    Gasket Paper pads have 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.

    Graphite foil is available in a number of grades, and is an excellent sealing material suitable for high temperature and high pressure liquid, steam, gas and chemical transfers. Graphite foil pads can be used where there is exposure to oil, petrol and gas - even nuclear or power generation applications.

    Millboard is made using a material composed of ceramic fibres, clay, insert fillers and binders. Although these padss can not be used with direct flame, they can handle temperatures of up to 1037℃.

    Non-asbestos fibre - Non-asbestos fibre has been designed to not only replace the original ‘Asbestos’ material, but also to be a more superior product with countless desirable properties as the material is manufactured in various formulations, each giving a combination of properties suited for different applications. Non-asbestos fibre can be blended with nitrile, thus giving fuel and oil resistance properties, with EPDM to create a potable water safe product or with PTFE for chemical resistance, they can also be supplied with a graphite coating to give steam and non-stick resistance properties.

    Presspahn is manufactured using kraft wood pulp, giving its distinctive ‘buff brown’ colour. Presspahn pads have excellent physical and mechanical properties, generally used as electrical insulation.

    Vulcanised fibre material is laminated plastic composed of only cellulose, with great mechanical strength and conformability. Vulcanised fibre gaskets can work in temperatures up to 110 ℃ anything more will result in the material fibres burning or breaking down.

    Advantages Of Using Betaflex Fibre Jointing Pads

    Using Betaflex fibre jointing rolls of material and components cut from them such as pads offer a number of advantages to users.

    Betaflex pads can be used within temperatures of up to 180°C (short term) and is suitable for sealing within industrial sectors and applications where there is a risk of exposure to or leakage of oils, petrols, diesel fuel, water, antifreezes, etc.

    Betaflex fibre jointing pads can also be used for electrical insulation applications where they restrict the flow of electric current, ensuring the health & safety of users and people around the appliance.

    Betaflex fibre jointing materials are manufactured in form, giving customers the option and flexibility of taking the material in full rolls lengths, cut sheet or converted cut finished pads.
