Material properties:TEADIT 24 BB is a non-asbestos gasket material made from pure, expanded, virgin PTFE. The whole production process is subject to strict quality control, registered under DIN EN ISO 9001Application areas:Because of the excellent thermal and chemical resistance of TEADIT 24 BB, it can be used in a wide variety of static applications in nearly all kinds of the industry. The exceptional malleability of expanded PTFE can compensate for out-of-parallel and/or damaged sealing surfaces and allows use with stress sensitive connections and applications where only a limited flange load is available, e.g. plastic flanges, glass flanges, etc. Gaskets can be cut and/or punched from TEADIT 24 BB, which can be installed in areas where there is not enough room to install a gasket tape like TEADIT 24B. Typical applications are the sealing of flanges, housings of pumps, gearboxes and compressors, hand- and manholes, air ducts, compensators, heat exchangers, chemical reactors, and many more. Technical data:Temperature range: - 240°C up to +260°C, for short periods up to +310°CChemical resistance: resistant against all chemicals from pH 0-14 (except molten alkali metals and elemental fluorine at high temperature and pressure)Pressure resistance: vacuum up to 200 barDensity: 0,75 g/cm3, +/- 0,1g/cm3Aging resistance: TEADIT 24 BB does not age (please note: adhesive tape has limited shelf life!) and is UV-resistantColour: whiteOthers: TEADIT 24 BB is physiologically harmless. It has no smell or taste. It is neither contaminating nor toxic and does not get influenced by micro-organisms and/or fungi. TEADIT 24 BB fulfills the FDA 21 CFR 177.1550 Perfluorcarbon Regulations, FMPA approval for use with foodstuff.Advantages:– Quick and simple installation: adhesive strip makes installation easier– Excellent malleability: compensates for small damages and uneven areas on the flange faces– Exceptional thermal and chemical stability: makes this material very versatile– No risk: the versatility of Teadit 24 BB eliminates the risk of using wrong material for a certain application - this prevents avoidable breakdowns– Gaskets can be cut from TEADIT 24 BB: this makes installations possible where gaskets in tape- form (e.g. TEADIT 24 B) cannot be used because flanges cannot be separated far enough
