A machine’s whole lifetime AFM 38 cover and casing gaskets for stationary transmissions and gear motors.

The challenge
Gaskets for the power units of paper machines, conveyor belts, cranes, escalators and many other applications have to last a machine’s whole life – despite low bolt forces, flexurally weak components (die-cast aluminum) and relatively rough milled sealing surfaces. Such cases require gaskets with uneven distributions and sometimes very low surface pressures to equally withstand all types of transmission oils, synthetic oils (polyglycol oils, ester oils) or very high temperatures of up to 150°C (302 °F).

The Victor Reinz® solution
A favorite among design engineers and plant operators: AFM 38 is the soft, compressible and adaptable aramide fiber-based gasket material with great chemical resistance to all manner of transmission oils. Even at very low surface pressures, AFM 38 has a strong sealing effect and good pressure resistance with very little setting, in spite of its soft structure.. The special feature for design-oriented engineers: AFM 38 is silicone-free, allowing it to be painted over.
