PTFE Gaskets Details

  • PTFE is extremely useful as a gasket material, thanks to its almost chemically inert nature
  • Unfortunately, the material has a tendency to creep under load and has limited use in such applications
  • Modified PTFE materials allow the benefits of PTFE to be utilised at higher compressive loads and temperatures
  • For instance, expanding the PTFE produces a softer material with a higher strength
  • The addition of fillers such as silica, silicon carbide or barium sulphate lends the material better hot and cold flow resistance. Hence, the chemical resistance is not negatively affected
  • PTFE can also be used as an envelope instead of a more conventional compressed fibre gasket material insert
  • This combines the chemical resistance of the PTFE with the stress retention and recovery properties of the insert
  • The result? The negative effect of the PTFE on the joint’s mechanical stability is reduced
  • Remarkable chemical resistance
  • Suitable for use with foodstuff and pharmaceutical applications
  • Insoluble in solvents, even at increased temperature
  • Stable to light
  • Does not absorb water
  • Excellent electrical insulating capacity
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Expanded PTFE materials has excellent creep resistance and bolt torque retention properties
  • This allows PTFE to be used at higher temperatures and to seal higher internal pressures
  • Expanded PTFE tape form with a pressure sensitive adhesive backing strip to assist with installation
  • Since the material is available in roll form it offers a solution to jointing needs without the need to maintain large stocks of cut gaskets
  • Combination rings or transition rings combine two different sizes having the same pitch diameter permitting bolt up of differing size flanges
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • PTFE envelope gaskets comprise a compressed synthetic fibre gasket material insert with a PTFE envelope
  • The envelope protects the gasket from chemical attacks and provides required strength and resilience for demanding sealing operations
  • PTFE envelope gaskets offer excellent chemical resistance under moderate conditions of temperature and pressure
  • Non-asbestos Gaskets is made of high quality non-asbestos fabric and synthetic rubber
  • Non-asbestos Gaskets sealing ability is exceptional and safe against oil
  • Suitable alternative for asbestos
