Press Release Summary:
Tri-CladÂ® seals and gaskets combine ThermafoilÂ® and ThermabraidÂ® graphite with range of high-temperature metals. Compressible and resilient graphite elements act as spring to maintain sealing force throughout thermal excursions, while metal provides protection and support. Seals are suited for critical engine joints at temperatures exceeding 1,000Â°C.
Original Press Release:
Tri-Clad® - Sealing Extreme Engine Environments
Designed to meet the performance challenges of heavy-duty diesel engines, EGC' Tri-Clad® seals and gaskets provide leak-free sealing of critical high-temperature connections. From exhaust manifold and EGR systems to turbochargers and cylinder heads, EGC will help you meet the stringent emissions standards both today and in the future. TriClad is a unique composite construction of Thermafoil® and Thermabraid® graphite and a range of high temperature metals. The compressible and resilient graphite elements acts as a spring to maintain sealing force throughout thermal excursions, while the metal provides ultimate protection and support. EGC Tri-Clad engine seals are successfully being used to seal critical engine joints at temperatures exceeding 1000°C.
