Fibreflex “Detroiter” is tough, pliable and compressible Protein Binder-treated fibre sheet packing used for flange gaskets in sealing fluids or gases as listed below. Fibreflex “Detroiter” is glycerine treated, which prevents flange adhesion and corrosion.
*Fibreflex makes no express or implied recommendations for use of its materials. This list is offered only as a guide and we strongly recommend testing be performed in your application prior to approval.
