Thermoseal RG-S160

Beater Addition Rolled Goods

Thermoseal's Advantage Roll Goods materials perform in a wide range of applications from low-cost aftermarket to higher performing OEM seals. Continuous length rolls allow efficient and economical fabrication with high-speed die-cutting equipment. When your customers want an "equivalent" or alternative to the currently specified material, there is an Advantage Roll Good for the job.

RG-S160 offers exceptional sealability and crush resistance in a wide range of applications. RG-S160 is composed of a blend of aramid, mineral, and cellulose fibers and graphite and other inorganic fillers with a styrene-butadiene binder. A factory-applied release coating on both sides aids in flange removal. Typical applications range from power sport and other small engine gaskets to heavy-duty diesel service.

RG-S160 is suitable for applications with intermittent operating temperatures up to 550°F (288°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.
