Garlock® GYLON EPIX™
The next generation in PTFE gasketing...
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.
Offered in one universal thickness, 3/32" (2.4mm), eliminating the need to stock a variety of material thicknesses with different stress requirements. This translates to reduced inventory.
Improved Load Retention
GYLON EPIX™ features a hexagonal surface profile that provides the torque retention and blowout resistance of a thin gasket and the conformability of a thicker gasket.
Made from the same PTFE material as standard GYLON® products, it eliminated the need for most plants to qualify the new GYLON EPIX™ products.
For Aggressive Media
GYLON EPIX™ Style 3500 EPX is a high performance, silica filled PTFE sheet material designed for use with strong acids, solvents, hydrocarbons, and other aggressive media. Style 3500 EPX withstands a wide range of chemicals for extended service in a wide variety of applications.
For Moderate Media
GYLON EPIX™ Style 3504 EPX is a high performance, aluminosilicate microsphere filled PTFE sheet material designed for use in moderate concentrations of acids, and caustics, as well as hydrocarbons, refrigerants, and more.
For Caustic Media
GYLON EPIX™ Style 3510 EPX is a high performance, barium sulfate filled PTFE gasketing material. Style 3510 EPX is designed for use where initiating and maintaining an extremely tight seal is critical; these applications include: strong caustics and moderate acids, chlorine, gases, water, steam, hydrocarbons and cryogenics.
