Stainless Steel Reinforced Woven Graphite Sheet
Patent Protection: US and Foreign Patents
SLADE Woven Gasket Sheet is made of individual flat 304 SS foil strips (not wire), encapsulated in 99.26% purity Nuclear Grade Expanded Graphite, forming the Patented and unique metal/graphite foil as seen below.
The Weaving of SLADE Pyro-Tex Gasket Sheet
SLADE Pyro-Tex Woven Graphite Gasket Sheets are made from SS foils reinforced expanded graphite foils (as above) which are woven into sheets using SLADE Weaving machine and process as shown below. The process is very identical to textile weaving as can be seen below:
SLADE Pyro-Tex Woven Graphite Gasket is especially suitable for such applications that experience frequent thermal cyclings. It can withstand high-temperature high-pressure applications, steam, various gases, and many corrosive chemicals. SLADE Woven Gaskets are often used in heat exchangers, exhaust gaskets, pumps, dryers, turbine crossover pipes, and compressors.
How flexible is your Gasket?
SLADE Woven Gasket is tough but very flexible. It can be bent over!
How easy is it to handle at the site?
Slade Woven Gasket can be rolled and shipped/transported. It can be easily rolled inside a tube as shown below and inventoried at the site warehouse.
The extreme ease of handling of the SLADE Woven Gasket is an added advantage and of great convenience to site operators. Often traditional gaskets require much delicate care when handling and transporting them otherwise, the risks of damaging the gaskets are high.
Your Inventory – Many Different Types Of Gaskets
The conventional methodology of holding different inventory of gasket materials to cater to each pH range and temperature/pressure resulting in high inventory types and costs. The risks of carrying the wrong inventory against actual need resulting in out of inventory situations can result in plant operating reliability issues! To add to the nightmare of holding an inventory, there are many different manufacturers of different types and sizes of gaskets too. These inventories have a dated shelf life too.
Just Hold One Roll Of SLADE Woven Gasket Is All You Need For Inventory
Yes, just only one roll of SLADE Woven Gasket Sheet as your inventory and you are covered for the whole range of ALL the gasket applications in your plant. It is 2m X 2m in size and you can cut any shapes and sizes of gaskets at the site: just by using a pair of scissors! You never run into out of inventory situation with gaskets again.

Plant operators have learned of the many benefits of just having ONE roll of SLADE Woven Gasket kept at the site as inventory. It saves you monies. It removes the risk of scraping unused inventory after hitting the shelf life. SLADE Expanded Graphite Wooven Gasket Sheet can be kept in the warehouse for more than 10 years without any product disintegration!
SLADE Woven Gasket – Can Be Used For Almost All Flanged Unions
It is suitable for many applications as it can handle any liquids with a pH range of 1-14; for high-temperature and high-pressure applications as well. It can be applied easily for a wide range of sealing applications in your whole plant. It is almost foolproof as there is no much worry about misapplications! It is not suitable for oxidizing liquids only which are about 40 liquids in total only; so it is easy to know what not to use on.
