STYLE 2550/2551
Crinkled Flexible Graphite Tape

Styles 2550 and 2551 crinkled flexible graphite tape are made from high purity graphite with no fibers, binders or other additives.
Style 2550 crinkled tape is typically used as a stuffing box packing for pumps and valves. Style 2551 is the same as 2550 except that it is furnished with a self-adhesive backing strip to facilitate installation as a form-in-place gasket, thread sealant, or for wrapping jacketed and other difficult-to-seal gaskets.

Flexible graphite covers a broad range of sealing applications. It handles most chemicals in the 0 - 14 pH range at cryogenic and elevated temperatures, and from vacuum to extreme pressures. It is used extensively in the chemical, automotive and pump and valve industries.
