Gaskets and Sheet Jointings

Nebar® Red

A high quality blend of cork and polychloroprene that withstands higher pressures and gasket loading than other Nebar® grades, particularly in the electrical industry.

Previously designated Nebar® HP.

Recommended maximum system pressure is 0.6Mpa/6bar. May be used for higher pressures in consultation with James Walker Technical Support Team.

Prime features

  • Developed for higher-pressure applications in switchgear and transformers.
  • High resistance to mineral oils.
  • +110°C maximum operating temperature in liquids.
  • Withstands higher gasket loading than other Nebar® grades.
  • Retains flexibility down to -30°C.
  • Easy to cut, handle and install.

Complies with ASTM F104 line call out F224000M2.
