Asbestos was once used almost exclusively in gasket applications where high durability and a dependable seal were required. But because of the grave health risks asbestos poses, companies are now required by law to find reliable alternatives. Precision Cutting Service produces the best alternative high performing custom gaskets using a product known as C-4401, and it has been doing so for more than 20 years.
What is C-4401?
C-4401 is a synthetic, compressed fiber, non-Asbestos sheet designed to replace asbestos in gasket applications. Competitively priced, C-4401 has an integral binder that prevents airborne dust. It is this dust, asbestos dust, that is so dangerous, and why asbestos is no longer permitted to be used.
Why Choose Precision Cutting Service for C-4401?
One of the many reasons to choose Precision Cutting Service is that it is one of the most experienced companies using C-4401. Since its founding in 1994, PCS has cut more gaskets from this material that from almost any other material. Their C-4401 custom gaskets are recommended for use in sealing oils, solvents, fuels, non-aggressive solutions, and service conditions up to 750°F (399°C).
Precision Cutting Service will custom cut gaskets to one’s exact specifications. Standard sheet sizes are the 60″ x 60″ square, 60″ wide x 120″ long, or 60″ wide x 180″ long in the following thicknesses: 1/64″, 1/32″, 3/64″, 1/16″, 3/32″ and 1/8″. The PCS computer numeric controllers and top design team makes certain that each PCS customer receives the maximum efficient cut from any sheet size.
Industries that Use Precision Cutting Service’s C-4401 Gaskets
The following industries are just a few of the ones that depend on Precision Cutting Service to deliver high performing C-4401 gaskets.
What Makes the C-4401 the Ideal Product?
The C-4401 gasket sheet delivers numerous advantages over other materials. For example, it is softer and more flexible than conventional Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), so it can easily conform to rough and irregular surfaces. This material also offers an excellent seal and chemical resistance. And because it is manufactured from synthetic fibers, with a Nitrile binder system, it mitigates the impact of airborne dust. As stated earlier, it is an exceptional gasket material for sealing liquids in high temperature applications up to 750°F (399°C) and for sealing gases and steam at temperatures up to 450°F (232°C). Typical applications are as seal for compressors, pipe flanges, pumps and valves.
