Thermoseal ML-S723

 

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-S723 is a controlled-swell gasket material intended for heavy-duty applications. ML-S723's blended styrene-butadiene and natural rubber binder provides exceptional sealability and conformability with low creep relaxation. Thickness increase, in the presence of oils and fuels, aids the sealing of irregular flange surfaces.

Typical applications include diesel engine oil pan gaskets and gear plate and rear seal carrier gaskets with intermittent operating temperatures up to 350°F (177°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.
