Steel Reinforced Gaskets Are Designed for Tough Chemical Applications
Texolon steel reinforced flange gaskets are designed for use in applications where a gasket's corrosion resistance and structural strength are paramount. Texolon pipe flange gaskets are molded PTFE with a 304 stainless steel perforated reinforcement core. Developed for sealing difficult chemical applications this product is ideal for use when corrosive liquids, high pressures or distinct pressure variations are present. The molded PTFE with metal stabilizes the seal face greatly enhancing the cold flow resistance and the effect of creep within the flange. The corrosion and flame resistant nature of void free virgin PTFE coupled with the stainless steel provide plants with improved operational safety by reducing the need for repeated retorquing to maintain a leak free seal.
