GORE® Universal Pipe Gasket (Style 800)

gorepipe

 

A universal gasket for all standard flanges on chemical process piping. Designed to meet the needs of different piping materials, it is ideal for standardizing across steel, glass-lined steel, and fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) systems. It delivers long-life performance, lowers total system sealing costs and simplifies inventory stocking requirements, while also protecting against the use of the wrong gasket.

GORE® GR Sheet Gasketing
Unmatched in sealing reliability, this unique product is ideal for sealing steel pipe and equipment flanges across a range of aggressive fluids. Gain the benefits of PTFE gasketing without the problems of creep and cold flow – along with a level of high-temperature and blowout resistance that is superior to any other PTFE sheet gasket. Highly conformable, it compresses into an extremely tough gasket that seals tight, even on irregular flanges.

GORE® Joint Sealant
The original form-in-place gasketing, it’s the most versatile and cost-effective alternative to sheet gasketing for large equipment flanges. Ideal for sealing complex surfaces, it conforms extremely well to rough or pitted surfaces. It’s easy to install, too: just peel off the backing, apply to the surface, and overlap the ends for a remarkably tight seal.

goretapeGORE® Gasket Tape Series 500
Save time, money, and trouble with this cutting-edge form-in-place product that maximizes operational reliability of large steel pipe and equipment flanges. Delivering dramatically improved creep resistance, the highly compressible tape forms a very tight seal that is long-lasting while also handling the rigors of virtually any chemical process. Unlike traditional large gaskets, this tape fits any shape instantly which eliminates large gasket fabrication and inventory challenges.

GORE® Gasket Tape Series 1000
GORE® Gasket Tape Series 1000 addresses all the challenges of reliably sealing large glass-lined-steel flanges. Made of 100% expanded PTFE (ePTFE), this highly conformable tape is chemically inert, and highly resistant to creep, cold flow and clamp-force loss. Its proprietary barrier core maintains an extra tight seal even at low loads.

GORE® Joint Sealant FT
This versatile, thin-profile, form-in-place gasketing features a full-face strip-type construction less than 2 inches (50.8 mm) wide for smooth, flat, rectangular sealing surfaces or for narrow sealing surfaces. It compresses easily to an extremely thin profile, while requiring only minimal compression to seal.  Because of its easy installation and removal, it is ideal for equipment with tight tolerances.
