Arguably, its best and most useful property is its resistance against petrol, oil, water and other fuels. Markedly, because it can seal against these liquids. In addition, it is an extremely cost-effective material and, therefore, is widely used in the automotive sector.

Although our chlorine-free flexoid gasket paper is ideal for the automotive industry. Due to its low heat and chemical resistance, it is not a common material within other industrial sectors. Furthermore, we do not recommend that it come into contact with alkalis, acids and steam. However, there are other alternatives for these types of applications, and they are normally non-asbestos materials.
