Interflon Paste HT1200

Initial situation

Because of heavy oxidation, the paddles of the expander had to be removed twice a year. If they were used for longer, they could only be removed using brute strength and destruction.

Our solution

Interflon Paste HT1200 was used to install the paddles. This is ceramic-based assembly paste that can withstand high temperatures because it does not carbonize and reliably prevents fretting and wear.


The use of Interflon Paste HT1200 means that the paddle can be removed easily, even after a year. This saves €3,260 in maintenance costs. Now, the paddles are only removed when they are worn out.
