BarTite Sealing Washers Withstand up to 8,500psi Hydrostatic Pressure
(March 19, 2008) Wilmington, MA - Gaynor Industries, a specialty fastener manufacturer, is pleased to announce that independent hydrostatic pressure testing shows BarTite sealing washers can withstand up to 8,500psi of internal hydrostatic pressure.
BarTite sealing washers are designed to seal in/out moisture, vapors, liquids, chemicals, pressurized air, and other contaminants. The washer employs a proprietary, stable and non-aging pvc plastisol sealant that is resistant to a wide range of liquids including petrochemicals, water, acids, solvents, hydrocarbons, and salt sprays.
A 360° impervious seal is achieved by applying torque, which forces the plastisol sealant to flow out in every direction. The sealant will fill all potential leak paths creating a truly dynamic seal unlike any other. BarTite sealing washers are suitable for use in filter systems, marine environments, electrical enclosures, hydraulics, automotive technologies, and numerous other industrial and commercial applications where sealing is required.
