Garlock® GYLON® BIO-LINE®
Process and equipment reliability
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.

FDA DIN 11850 and ISO 1127 PTFE Gasket
GYLON BIO-ASEPT® seals offer high stability and a specific elasticity. The seals are pre-formed and stress controlled to provide a solid seal when assembled in piping systems. Chemical degradation or brittleness will not occur under normal or even elevated process and sterilization conditions. GYLON BIO-ASEPT® gaskets conform to DIN 11853 (hygienic connections) and DIN 11864 (aseptic connections) and far exceed the performance characteristics of conventional elastomeric seals.
M1/M2 Collar DIN 11851 PTFE Gasket - For Dairy Screw Couplings
Its combination of sealing stress and simultaneous recovery makes GYLON BIO-ECO® the ideal solution for couplings in accordance with DIN 11851 and SMS 1149. All of the disadvantages associated with current elastomeric seals regarding temperature, chemical resistance, and re-usability are eliminated by the modified PTFE material. GYLON BIO-ECO® seals are available in all common sizes and dimensions, either without an inner collar (M1) or with an inner collar (M2).
Highly Resistant Hygienic Gasket for TRI-CLAMP Couplings
GYLON BIO-PRO® seals provide a safe and durable solution for protecting the integrity of food and pharmaceutical processing media. Its modified and restructured PTFE material is pre-formed and stress controlled for all standard TRI-CLAMP connections. It is dimensionally stable and resists intrusion.
Universal Sanitary Gasket
Manufactured from our proprietary GYLON® style 3522 modified PTFE, GYLON® BIO-PRO PLUS™ delivers best in class performance across all critical factors such as compliance, chemical compatibility, sealability, creep and cold flow. Fulfilling ASME-BPE standards for dimensional consistency, this next generation sanitary gasket ensures ease of installation and long term operational integrity in the most challenging and critical applications. GYLON® BIO-PRO PLUS™ is pre-formed and stress controlled with high manufacturing precision, helping to eliminate critical and costly contamination issues often associated with gasket recession or intrusion within hygienic couplings. With a smooth surface finish, the GYLON® BIO-PRO PLUS™ is ideal for product contact applications and is a top performer relative to both CIP and SIP cycle life, regardless of cleaning media or sterilization procedure. Our GYLON® 3522 material of construction is 100% pure PTFE, and provides full compliance with all industry standards.
