GYLON EPIX ™ New Generation PTFE Gasket
GYLON EPIX ™ Gasket-New Generation PTFE Gasket
GYLON EPIX ™ is a newly developed series of PTFE gaskets. It uses a patented, surface-protruding structure and is based on proven light brown, white, and blue GYLON®, which has been proven to create a highly integrated, optimized sealing performance.
The novel GYLON EPIX ™ provides outstanding performance by combining the traditional characteristics of GYLON® with the innovative surface structure design. Compared with traditional PTFE gaskets, it can be used in a wider range of applications in addition to used or damaged flanges. In addition, GYLON EPIX ™ provides tightness and bolt load retention of 1/16 "thickness and adaptability of 1/8" thickness. The hexagonal surface protrusion structure design improves the compression and resilience performance, reduces the contact area, and makes the gasket receive more concentrated flange pressure during the initial compression, thereby improving the sealing performance.
The structural design with increased compression ratio allows GYLON EPIX ™ to improve performance in poorly aligned flanges. Combining the two thicknesses into one thickness reduces the need for multiple thickness inventories. Garlock is designed to provide practical and reliable solutions for industrial sealing needs. Thanks to the improved structural design, color-recognizable materials and a single thickness, GYLON EPIX ™ makes sealing easier and easier.
