Gasketing is offered in wide range of non-asbestos materials including GYLON® restructured PTFE gaskets, an industry standard for resistance to aggressive chemicals, and its extreme grade gasketing with Flange Free® anti-stick coating. A patented heat welding process enables the production of one-piece gaskets instead of separate segments spliced together. Garlock's gasketing products include engineered low-load styles available in either sheet form or as discreet gaskets as well as materials to effectively seal metallic piping.
*** NEW! Garlock® GYLON EPIX™
Garlock® GYLON BIO-LINE®
Garlock® Inorganic Fiber
GYLON EPIX™ is a family of gaskets that effectively seals a broader range of applications and is more forgiving during the installation process. It allows the end user to save valuable turn-around time, reduce re-work, and lower costs, helping them to finish ahead of schedule and under budget.
The Garlock® BLUE-GARD® compressed, non-asbestos (CNA) gasketing line offers a variety of elastomers that provide exceptional sealability and excel in a wide range of services. The unique blend of aramid fibers, fillers and elastomeric binders provides improved torque retention and drastically lowered emissions levels. BLUE-GARD® gasketing offers cost savings by cutting operational costs through reduced waste, maintenance, stocked inventory, fluid loss, and energy consumption.
Garlock® GYLON® gasketing is a family of severe service PTFE gasketing materials manufactured using a proprietary process that imparts unique physical properties that are not obtainable through conventional manufacturing methods.
The innovative GYLON® manufacturing process reorients the PTFE and fillers in a way that increases the material’s tensile properties and decreases the creep relaxation problems that usually plague PTFE products. In addition, the mixing process creates a homogenous material with consistent, superior physical properties that, unlike inferior skived PTFE sheet gaskets, do not fluctuate from one side of the sheet to another. Plus, our patented thermal bonding process allows us to fabricate gaskets of nearly any size.
Designed for severe chemical service, GYLON® gaskets are color-coded for easy identification and provide superior sealability to reduce process and media loss and fugitive emissions. They also reduce creep and cold flow characteristics.
GYLON® BIO-LINE® PTFE material provides exceptional sealing performance for all pharmaceutical and food processing applications and processes. It’s restructured PTFE composition provides safe, durable and consistent sealing performance in a range of challenging environments, including exposure to acids, caustics, sensitive media, low and high temperatures and pressures.
By remaining flexible, tight and flush with the pipe bore, even under high loads, GYLON BIO-LINE® gaskets further eliminate the potential for process material contamination caused by traditional elastomeric seals.
Garlock® high temperature gasketing excels in the harshest conditions—intense heat and high pressure. These high performance gasket materials have been laboratory tested for fire safety. They maintain an effective seal during pressure and temperature fluctuations, and their excellent torque retention lowers leakage rates and reduces maintenance time.
Garlock® Inorganic Fiber Gasketing offers excellent thermal stability with minimal weight loss, reduced creep relaxation and improved torque retention. The inorganic fibers have excellent thermal and oxidation resistance, withstanding a continuous operating temperature of up to 550°F (290°C), and maximum spike of 800°F (425°C).
MULTI-SWELL™ 3760 is the only true “controlled swell sheet” available on the market today. The controlled swell characteristics combined with the higher compressibility allow the 3760 to create an ultra-tight seal in in low load applications, such as gearboxes, compressors, pumps, lightweight lube oil systems flanges, and access covers, where traditional cork and vegetable fiber gaskets historically leak.
The Garlock STRESS SAVER® family of products feature molded, raised ribs that help to create a tighter seal by concentrating the compressive load, ideal for lightweight piping and non-metallic flange applications where low bolt load and chemical resistance are issues. This rib design allows the STRESS SAVER® gaskets to seal where flat rubber and traditional PTFE gaskets will not.
