[VIDEO] Introduction to GYLON EPIX™

GYLON EPIX™ WebinarWe recently added the GYLON EPIX™ – The Next Generation in PTFE Gasketing webinar to our website.  The webinar discusses Garlock’s revolutionary new gasketing material. With its patented hexagonal surface, GYLON EPIX™ concentrates gasket stress, providing improved compressibility and bolt load retention, improving sealability and blowout resistance.

Below is the first section of the webinar, diving into what drove Garlock to create this new material, and how GYLON EPIX™ provides the benefits of both a 1/16″ and 1/18″ thick gasket in one, universal, 3/32″ thickness.

NEW! Process Seals Webinar – Flavor Transfer

Process Seals - Flavor TransferGallagher Fluid Seals recently made our Process Seals Webinar available on the website.

Food & Beverage, Pharmaceutical, and Chemical Processing industries have different requirements than typical seals. Process seals need to have multiple media resistance. Unlike a traditional seal that only needs to be concerned with the media running through it, process seals also have to be designed to withstand the cleaning media being used.

This is the third and final section of the Process Seals Webinar, presented by Gallagher Fluid Seals & Dichtomatik Americas. This video discusses flavor transfer for seals used in processing.

To download the webinar in its entirety, simply visit our Resources page, or click on the image at the beginning of the article.


This webinar was produced in conjunction with Dichtomatik Americas,  a Freudenberg brand.  With a broad array of products and materials, but more importantly comprehensive knowledge and technical expertise, Dichtomatik has earned its title as market leader for sealing solutions in food & beverage, pharmaceutical, and chemical processing industries.

NEW! GYLON EPIX™ Webinar Now Available

GYLON EPIX™Gallagher recently added the GYLON EPIX™ Webinar to its website. This video is a recorded webinar discussing GYLON EPIX™ – The Next Generation in PTFE Gasketing.

This material is a newly developed family of PTFE gaskets. It is manufactured using a patented, profiled surface based on our proven Fawn  (Style 3500), Off-White (Style 3510), and Blue (Style 3504) GYLON® to create highly conformable materials for optimum sealing performance.

GYLON EPIX™ will provide superior functional performance by combining the traditional attributes of GYLON® with an innovative surface design. It offers a broader range of applications than traditional PTFE gaskets that are used in worn and pitted flanges. In addition, GYLON EPIX™ delivers the tight sealing and load retention properties of 1/16” (1.6mm) and the conformability of 1/8” (3.2mm). The hexagonal profile provides improved compressibility and recovery. The profiled surface reduces the contact area during initial compression to concentrate the compressive force of the flange for improved sealability.

Garlock GYLON EPIX™Designed for increased compressibility, it improves performance in misaligned flanges. The consolidation of two thicknesses to one reduces the need to inventory multiple thicknesses. Garlock is dedicated to providing real sealing solutions that meet real world sealing needs. With an improved design, color-coded materials, and single thickness, GYLON EPIX™ makes sealing easier.

New Video: Gallagher Seals Makes House Calls


While some businesses may have abandoned the practice of making house calls, Gallagher Fluid Seals is not among them.

It’s something we still believe in, as Key Accounts Manager Brian Gallagher says in our latest video.

“I believe the most effective way of discussing an application or a problem with a client is face-to-face,” Gallagher says in the clip.

Find out why by watching our “House Calls” video. And be sure to check out some of our earlier video clips, which deal with topics ranging from radial seal misalignment to static seal gaskets.
