Solid Flange Gaskets

TEXOLON® PTFE Flange Gaskets

Extreme performance for demanding applications

Our steel reinforced pipe flange gaskets are a proprietary molded PTFE gasket featuring stainless steel grade 304 perforated reinforcement core. TEXOLON® PTFE gaskets were initially developed for sealing difficult chemical applications requiring superior cold flow and blowout resistance. The combination of corrosion resistance of void-free PTFE fluorocarbon resins with the structural strength of grade 304 perforated stainless steel provides improved operational safety by significantly reducing the need for repeated retorquing to maintain a leak-free seal.

Details

Manufacturing process

  • Proprietary process totally encapsulates a 304 stainless steel core.
  • Stainless steel core greatly reduces creep and cold flow.
  • Thickness reduction due to material flow is proportionately less.
  • Repeated retorquing is rarely required to maintain a tight seal.

Performance characteristics

  • Stabilized seal face greatly enhances the cold flow resistance.
  • Over one-third less stud load loss than virgin and glass filled PTFE gasket materials.
  • Higher temperature and pressure limits than competitive PTFE flange gaskets.

Sizes

Standard thickness of 1/8”, but can also be made to 3/32”. Standard ASA dimensions, but can also be made in ANSI or custom dimensions and configurations. Sizes up to 48” O.D. as well as full-face configurations available. We also offer blind, fluid blocking configurations with a handle for ease of installation.

For Applications Where:

  • Liquids or gases are corrosive
  • Higher pressures are encountered
  • Contamination must be avoided
  • Sudden failure in a system would be hazardous
  • Long service life is mandatory
  • A tight seal is needed to control emissions
  • Pressure variations are present
