BLUE-GARD® Style 3400

Aramid Fibers with an SBR Binder

The BLUE-GARD® Style 3400 is a compressed, non-asbestos gasket made from aramid fibers with an SBR binder. Its excellent sealability can drastically lower emissions levels and reduce waste in water, saturated steam*, and inert gas applications.
  • Excellent sealability
  • Improved torque retention
  • Drastically lowered emissions levels
  • Cuts operational costs through reduced waste, maintenance, stocked inventory, fluid loss, and energy consumption
  • Aramid fibers, fillers, and an SBR rubber binder
  • Grey-black color
  • Min. Temperature:
    -100°F / -73°C
  • Max. Temperature:
    700°F / 370°C
  • Continuous Max:
    400°F / 205°C
  • Max Pressure:
    1200 PSI / 83 bar
  • Maximum PxT 1/16:
    350,000 (°F x PSIG) / 12,000 bar x °C
  • Maximum PxT 1/8:
    250,000 (°F x PSIG) / 8,600 bar x °C
  • Water
  • Saturated steam*
  • Inert gases
*This style is not the preferred choice for steam service, but is successful when adequately compressed. Minimum recommended assembly stress = 4,800 psi. Preferred assembly stress = 6,000-10,000 psi. Gasket thickness of 1/16″ strongly preferred. Retorque the bolts/studs prior to pressurizing the assembly. For saturated steam above 150 psig or superheated steam, consult Garlock Engineering.
