Wire Mesh Overbraided-Jacketed Turbine Engine Exhaust Gasket Rope Seal
4900159-23, 4900159-38, 4900159-48 / F-E15600-00-00
High Temperature, Heat Resistant
1200°F / 648°C Continuous Exposure:
This high temperature, heat and flame resistant fiberglass gasket and seal rope is often used on gas turbines exhaust components, and is fabricated from high quality type E fiberglass that will not burn and will withstand continuous exposure to temperatures of 1200°F / 648°C.
This material resists most acids and alkalis and is unaffected by most bleaches and solvents. It is highly flexible and conformable. The base fiber is manufactured to the specifications of ASTM D-578, ASTM committee D13, and subcommittee D13.18.
The seals are jacketed with a knitted 304 stainless steel wire mesh, providing significant abrasion resistance. Supplied cut to length or available by-the-foot and in bulk quantity.
This seal can also be fabricated with Inconel, but the common part numbers listed in the catalog are supplied as standard with a stainless steel core and jacket. Some resellers inaccurately describe the standard seal as containing Inconel.
Available in precut lengths as part number 4900159-23, 4900159-38 & 4900159-48.
Available in by-the-foot lengths or bulk length as part number F-E15600-00-00.
High Temperature Wire Jacketed Fiberglass Gas Turbine Exhaust Seals
Benefits of our High-Temperature Fiberglass Heat Protection Products
Fiberglass offers excellent heat resistance, retaining more than half of its room temperature tensile strength at 675°F / 357°C, and more than 25% at 875°F / 468°C. It begins to soften at 1500°F / 815°C and melts near 2050°F / 1121°C. Non-combustible and excellent thermal conductivity to dissipate hot spots; high resistance to chemicals and unaffected by UV light.
