A new level of sustainability with KLINGER Gaja

The use of sustainable raw materials is at the heart of the new KLINGER Gaja gasket. With its outstanding eco-balance, this new product helps companies meet their climate targets.

Gaia, the oldest goddess of Olympus, was worshiped in ancient Greece as the creator of the universe and our planet. As Mother Earth, care for nature and sustainability would have been close to her heart. And so it is with us. Which is why the product developers have looked to classical mythology in choosing a name for their new KLINGER Gaja – the first gasket made of raw materials chosen for their low environmental impact.

As well as being Head of Product Development at KLINGER Dichtungstechnik, Stephan Piringer is the company’s HSE Manager and, as such, is concerned about sustainability.

With KLINGER Gaja, his team came up with the answer: a universally usable gasket that has all the technical properties of a standard gasket as well as having added value for the environment.

This value comes from the raw materials, which are largely not of fossil origin and therefore have an unprecedented ecological balance. The key constituents of the KLINGER Gaja gaskets are natural rubber, cellulose fibers, bio-circular silica, and untreated natural mineral fillers. These materials are largely renewable and can be sustainably sourced. The additional substances used in producing some of the gaskets are also chosen for their low environmental impact: no plasticizers, mineral oils, or anti-aging agents are used.
