Thermoseal ML-N102

High-performance multi-layer sheet

Thermoseal's Multi-Layer Technology materials provide both exceptional interfacial and interstitial sealability. Conformable outer layers prevent leakage between the gasket and flanges and a strong high-density core provides structural support while preventing leakage through the gasket.

ML-N102 is a high-performance synthetic fiber and nitrile butadiene binder gasket material with good resistance to refrigerants and lubricating oils. Its unique Multi-Layer Technology structure provides exceptional low flange pressure sealability with exceptional torque retention.

Typical applications include heavy-duty diesel engines and compressors with intermittent operating temperatures up to 450°F (232°C).

The ability of a gasket to make and maintain a seal depends not only on the style and quality of the gasket material, but also on medium being sealed, the flange design, the amount of pressure applied to the gasket by the bolts and how the gasket is assembled onto the flanges and tightened. These factors are beyond the manufacturer's control.
