Novus™ FI (Foil)

PRODUCT TYPE: Graphite Laminate (Exfoliated Graphite)

Novus FI is a graphite laminate material with one or more thin, flat stainless steel 316 insertions. The thickness of the reinforcement is 0.05mm. The graphite sheet is fixed to the insertion by means of a super thin chloride-free adhesive layer. This reinforcement results in a sturdy gasket which is relatively easy to handle and simple to process into gaskets.


Pure exfoliated graphite with a 316 stainless steel foil reinforcement for improved handling characteristics.


General service material for high temperature applications including steam. Max Temp: Oxidising media -200°C to 450°C Max Pressure: 140 bar.
