Over the last century our aggressive R&D efforts have delivered breakthroughs ranging from the Spiral Wound gasket in 1912 to the ever evolving applications for Thermiculite®—and, most recently, the revolutionary Change gasket. Developing materials that push the parameters of heat, pressure and chemical resistance allow you to imagine new and better processes—to innovate. In a competitive global economy there’s nothing safer than that.
Sealing solutions that have been customized to your specific application are more likely to be effective. Over 80% of Flexitallic sales worldwide result from our engineers working with yours to develop a new solution or improve an existing one. This combination of superb design, advanced materials and our high manufacturing standards make for a safer seal.
So many flange failures are the result of improper installation. And in industries where extreme heat, pressure and toxic chemicals are in use, that can lead to disaster. That’s why we created our Bolt Training Seminars that go onsite at plants around the world to give hands-on instruction in this critical procedure. We educate both new and experienced technicians and are strong proponents of industry standards.
