Garlock® gaskets can be made from a variety of materials, including GYLON® structurally modified PTFE, compressed fiber gaskets, GRAPH-LOCK® flexible graphite sheets, THERMA-PUR extreme high temperature gaskets, and high-performance rubber sheet products.
GYLON® is a tried-and-tested product and is known throughout the industry as the best gasket material for harsh chemical conditions. In addition, because the product can be thermally welded using a patented process, GYLON® gasket sizes are also virtually unlimited.
Garlock's compressed fiber gasket material is made using a proven technology known as the High Pressure Sheet (HPS) process. Garlock products are different from other HPS products in that they use proprietary environmentally friendly non-VOC solvents in their manufacturing processes.
