Based on its recent analysis of the gaskets market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes the Flexitallic Group with the 2008 North American Frost & Sullivan Product Value Leadership of the Year Award for its comprehensive product line of gaskets that offer excellent sealing under intense temperature, pressure, and chemical environments. The company's unmatched expertise in various end-user plan operations makes it the solution provider of choice among process industries.

Process industries have been hampered by the premature failure of gaskets and consequent operational performance issues. Their processes have also been restrained by the lack of a gasket that can hold firm even in extreme temperature and pressure.

Flexitallic met these challenges head-on, and with the help of coordination with field sales and design teams, has introduced an innovative family of gasket products, Thermiculite®.

"Flexitallic's Thermiculite® demonstrates exceptional inertness to any chemical environment, as it is completely impervious to degradation," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Deepthi Pamadiparthi. "Thermiculite® can endure up to 1950°F for an extended period of time without oxidation -- an industry-wide benchmark."

This seeming immunity to high temperatures increases the mean time between replacement (MTBR) of the flanged joint, thus allowing the plant to make optimum use of its facilities. Thermiculite®'s exceptional sealing quality prevents the leakage of fluid or gas from flanges, enabling customers to lower overall plant emissions.

Thermiculite®'s inert characteristic also enhances the safety of equipment, personnel, and process. Further, it eases plants' disposal and recycling concerns, since it does not use volatile organic compounds. This feature allows Flexitallic to be environmentally-friendly in its relatively simple internal production processes, leading to superior operational excellence for the company.

"Thermiculite®'s soft, conformable material helps seal flange irregularities, and its outstanding stability in harsh chemical environment prevents leaks that may lead to flash fires at flange joints," notes Pamadiparthi. "Thermiculite®'s superior sealing ability and first-rate performance characteristics have helped it grow by more than 10.0 percent in 2008, while the overall gaskets market grew at 3.5 percent."

Thermiculite®'s wide-spread acceptance has helped Flexitallic to broaden its reach not only across process domains, but also into safety-critical domains such as nuclear and avionics. Flexitallic has earned a reputation as a pioneer in technology, for designing the appropriate gasket for crucial applications.

The company constantly strives to strengthen its customer base by offering technical trainings for its distributors. Flexitallic's unwavering focus on customer needs is evident from its products and application support, which enhance the value-to-cost proposition for its customers. Flexitallic's ability to provide continual application support for its end-users is a testimony to its dedication to offering customer value.

"Thermiculite® delivers maximum value to customers by reducing the total cost of ownership and improving process yields," observes Pamadiparthi. "It is a perfect illustration of customer-centric innovation that offers extended lifecycle cost benefits to customers."

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the solution that has provided customers with the highest ratio for value-to-cost. This solution should be of high quality, with a very high value addition to customers. The solution is ranked for its features and its competitive advantage in the industry. On revealing exceptional responses to the needs of customers, the solution continues to improve the uptime for the process, thereby positively impacting the profitability of customers.

Frost & Sullivan's Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
