Tesnit Compressed Gasket Materials - BAX 5000


Environment friendly gasket material with supreme mechanical properties.

BAX 5000 is an excellent fiber gasket material based on aramide fibres. A high content of aramide fibres in combination with binders assure outstanding mechanical properties. The material is free of harmful nitrosoamines (certified by MRPRA) and fibers which are hazardous to human health, and if it is applied at higher temperatures no significant emission of harmful degradation products has been detected. BAX 5000 is in compliance with the requirements of DIN 28091-2 and BS 7531 Grade Y.

Properties and application


BAX 5000 has excellent mechanical properties and shows good sealing properties in joints subjected to high mechanical loads such as screwed joints with narrow annular faces. High torque retention and good sealability ensure low maintenance costs and high joint safety. BAX 5000 is appropriate for the sealing of oils, fuels, gases, Freons, solvents, non-aggressive chemicals and many other media. Surface treatment provides simple replacement after use. Due to its excellent mechanical properties and physiological excellence it is particularly applicable to valves, hot-water boilers and radiators as well as for general use.


Surface Treatment


The standard version has a non-stick top and bottom layer. Additional surface treatment is generally unnecessary. Special treatment with graphite, silicone or PTFE on one or both sides is available on request.
