Graphite Sheets (PERMA-FOIL®)

PERMA-FOIL® is a flexible graphite sheet made from specially processed natural graphite without use of a binder. Special processing developed by us gives it a flexibility and compression recovery not found with conventional graphite products. These qualities ensure a snug fit with contacting parts, therefore it is widely used as a seal, to note automotive gaskets and packing.

*The figures above are typical values, and are not guaranteed.
*Property data with the density of 1.0Mg/m3.
*Oxidation loss is the measurement for 1 hour at 670℃.
*Initial oxidation temperature represents the kick-off temperature of mass decrease by the result of measurement using a thermobalance in the air atmosphere.
*The measurement temperature range for the coefficient of thermal expansion is 300 to 400℃.
*There are constraints of size depending on the size, thickness and bulk density.
*There are standard size for each grade, thickness or bulk density.
*Before actually using one of our products, please be sure to contact our sales department to consult on selecting the most appropriate grade.
