EPTFE Gasket Material

EPTFE Gasketing

EPTFE Sheet

EPTFE (Expanded PTFE) is a Universal sheet EPTFE gasket material for most services. Seals rough and irregular surfaces.  Made from biaxial oriented expanded PTFE sheeting that is laminated to the required thickness.  Seals of up to 3000+psi can be achieved depending on the flange type & design and type of media being sealed.  Chemically resistant over the Q-14 pH range.  Specific gravity: 4 to 6.  Suitable for temperatures to 600F.

Expanded PTFE Sheeting

Expanded PTFE EPTFE

CONSTRUCTION
Our EPTFE gasket material  is manufactured by expanding 100% virgin PTFE using a proprietary process that produces a uniform and highly fibrillated microstructure with equal tensile strength in all directions. The resulting product exhibits characteristics significantly different than conventional PTFE sheet. EPTFE  is much softer and more flexible than regular PTFE sheet gasketing and thus conforms easily to irregular and rough surfaces. In addition, the gasket material is easier to compress and minimizes creep and cold flow.

APPLICATION / SERVICE
Our EPTFE  is an all purpose gasket material  that can replace all other types of PTFE sheet. It will seal all aggressive chemicals over the entire 0-14 pH range except for molten alkali metals and elemental fluorine. Made from 100% virgin PTFE, Our EPTFE gasket material not only resists chemical attack, but it will not contaminate or discolor end products. These industries currently use expanded PTFE gasket material.:
