BARC has been in the field of manufacture of insulating and sealing materials for over many years now. Compressed asbestos fibre jointings developed and manufactured with overseas technical backup by BARC has been more than satisfying the needs of the industry domestically as well as overseas.

Compressed asbestos fibre jointings are manufactured from carefully selected chrysotile fibres, intimately blended with suitable heat resisting binders, fillers and vulcanised into sheets of homogenous compositions and uniform thicknesses.

FYSAX AMJ 545 ULTRA METALLIC

A superior grade of jointing, reinforced with FINE MESH STEEL GAUZE. The special construction provides excellent seal under pulsating or rapidly fluctuating pressure conditions, eliminates physical breakdown and contributes towards bolt torque retention. Available in Graphited finish only. 600 180 BS.1832/1991, Grade A (for base material without steel mesh) IS: 2712/1979, GradeW/1 reinforced IS: 2712/1998, GradeW/1 reinforced Recommended against most gases and fluids except acids, under high pressure and vibrating conditions. Specially recommended for sealing high pressure steam pipelines where the design provides narrow flanged joints, Is extensively used for gasketing in internal combustion engines and air compressors. Recommended against high pressure super-heated and saturated steam, gases, alkalies, weak acids, oils, solvents, alcohols and most chemicals.
