Thermoseal ML-5270

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-5270 is a high performance synthetic fiber and polychloroprene binder gasket material that is resistant to refrigerants and oil mixtures. Its unique Multi-Layer Technology structure provides exceptional low flange pressure sealability with exceptional torque retention.

Typical applications include gaskets in hermetic and semi-hermetic compressors and oil pan gaskets in heavy-duty diesel engines 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.
