Braid made of flexible, expanded natural graphite foil.
Superb emergency running capability, no wear on the shaft, excellent thermal conductivity
Highest-quality pure graphite gives a coefficient of expansion similar to steel
The rings have to be pre-compressed at a level of 1.3 to 1.5 during the assembly
Can be universally applied
Packing needs to be pre-compressed
Die-formed rings are recommended STYLE 335 same as STYLE 350 but made from expanded graphite with integrated carbon reinforcement for easier handling
