History & knowledgebase on Asbestos Replacement Products
In engineering industry Gland packings play very important role. For manufcaturing gland packings asbestos is used with different combinations like graphite, Brass Metal, White Metal, Stainless Steel wire etc. Since Asbestos dust & microscopic asbestos fibers are dangerous to human health, there is a need to replace these products by new products. Asbestos Replacement Products are manufactured by using synthetic fibers. Synthetic fibers are man-made rather than natural fibers. Examples of synthetic fabrics include polyester, acrylic, nylon, rayon, acetate, spandex, latex, Orlon and Kevlar.
There are different types of Asbestos Replacement Products manufactured as per the need & to suit exact requirement.
