Thermo-Tork®


Thermo-Tork® gasket materials from Auburn outperform many more expensive alternative products in a wide range of higher temperature, heavy-duty applications. Designed for use up to 400°C (750°F), Thermo-Tork® materials are offered with either a Fully Cured or a Latent Cured Thermally Stable Binder System and are made with Heat-Resisting Fibers. Thermo-Tork® products are pliable, flexible, bendable, and easy to die cut into specific gasket shapes. Typical usages of Thermo-Tork® involve die cut gaskets intended for high pressure and high temperature flange applications, compressors, small engines, marine equipment and automotive applications.

Standard Products

TN-9000 has a fully cured nitrile butadiene rubber binder with Aramid fiber. It has good tensile strength, low creep relaxation, and excellent fuel and oil resistance. It is intended for applications that include die cut gaskets needed for high flange pressures and temperatures and with short duration maximum temperatures up to 400°C (750°F).  

TN-9001 is a heavy-duty latent cure material with nitrile binder. It provides an excellent source of oil resistant die cut gaskets and is intended for applications with short duration maximum temperatures up to 400°C (750°F).

TN-9015 is a heavy-duty latent cure material with nitrile binder. It provides an excellent source of oil resistant die cut gaskets and is intended for applications with short duration maximum temperatures up to 400°C (750°F).

Adhesive Backings

Auburn is capable of taking any Thermo-Tork® material and applying adhesive to one or both of its surfaces. Auburn adhesives are available for both raw materials and finished die cut gaskets including die cut shims, washers, spacers, gaskets and seals. Auburn works with dozens of popular adhesives including:

 The use of adhesives has many distinct advantges that include eliminating the messy job of cementing during assembly operations, assuring a uniform amount of adhesive per part, and reducing labor time in assembly operations.

Manufacturing Availability

Thermo-Tork® is available in many standard thicknesses - .010”, .015”, .031”, .047”, 062” and master rolls that are 40” wide. These products can be further supplied in a variety of forms that include continuous length rolls, sheets, precision strips, slit-to-width rolls and custom die cut gaskets.

Manufacturing Capabilities

Auburn’s speciality is fabrication of precision die cut gaskets with tight tolerances and clean cut edges for any production quantity from a single piece up to millions. All die cut gaskets are cleaned, inspected and neatly packaged prior to shipment. 

Tooling

For a simple part such as a plain die cut washer, a disc, a rectangular pad or a uniform-width strip, a house-tool is very often available at no additional cost. For a more complex part that requires a tool, a steel rule die is built. A steel rule die’s cost is usually quite minimal ($95.00-$125.00 range) and its production time is ordinarily only 1 or 2 days, at which time a first article sample is sent to the customer for a final approval.
