Description

Novus material is a compressed non asbestos fibre based product with a high grade rubber binder

Non-asbestos materials generally have very good heat resistant properties. They are also good for use in applications that put them into contact with water, petrol, or natural gas.

As such, non-asbestos materials are used in air compressors, diesel engines, pipelines, and many other general industrial and marine environments.

As a general rule, non-asbestos materials are:
Good for use with water
Good for use with petrol
Have good resistance to natural gases

Non-Asbestos materials, such as novus, can resist temperatures of 400C. Novus also generally exhibts good resistance to acids, and most oils and fuels.
