Garlock has launched the GYLON EPIX™, a patented next generation in PTFE gasketing featuring a hexagonal surface profile with superior compressibility and sealing for use in chemical processing environments.
GYLON EPIX™ will be available in one universal thickness of 3/32" (2.4mm) that combines the sealing and blowout resistance of a 1/16" (1.6mm) gasket with the compressibility and conformability of a 1/8" (3.2mm) gasket. It will be available in the same three materials as traditional GYLON® products; fawn (silica filled PTFE), off-white (barium sulfate filled PTFE) and blue (aluminosilicate microsphere filled PTFE).
In metallic flanges, GYLON EPIX™ performs as well or better than existing 1/16" or 1/8" GYLON® gaskets, allowing end-users and distributors to consolidate inventory, lower the risk of using incorrect gasket thicknesses, and reduce stocking costs.
