PTFE Joint Sealant Tape
Expanded PTFE Joint Sealant is a soft, compressible gasket material made of 100% pure, expanded PTFE. It is a form-in-place gasket that conforms to almost any sealing surface. Upon compression, it forms a thin, hard ribbon that fills in surface irregularities and creates an extremely tight seal. It is capable of withstanding a wider range of pressures, temperatures, and chemical environments than any other soft gasket.
Our Joint Sealant can be used in just about any accessible bolted joint that features a flat or serrated sealing surface. It is also easy to install and remove, making it a highly versatile and cost-effective solution for many demanding sealing applications.
Expanded Teflon Sheet
Our Expanded Teflon gasket sheet is manufactured by expanding 100% virgin PTFE using a proprietary process that produces a uniform and highly fibrillated microstructure with equal tensile strength in all directions. The resulting product exhibits characteristics significantly different than conventional PTFE sheet. This style is much softer and more flexible than regular PTFE sheet and thus conforms easily to irregular and rough surfaces. In addition, the material is easier to compress and minimizes creep and cold flow.
Expanded Teflon is an all purpose gasket sheet that can replace all other types of PTFE sheet. It will seal all aggressive chemicals over the entire 0-14 pH range except for molten alkali metals and elemental fluorine. Made from 100% virgin PTFE, it not only resists chemical attack, but it will not contaminate or discolor end products.
