Basic Characteristics of PTFE Gasket
- PTFE gaskets are one of the best gaskets known; they can be insulated to 500 volts per mil to suit the needs of the machinery. In Electrical Industries these are frequently used in wire and cable wrap, and to separate conductive surfaces in capacitors.
- In Chemical Industries PTFE is the best choice for gasketspump interiors, vessel linings,spacers, seals, dip tubes and drilling components.
- In Petro- Chemical Industries these Gaskets are usedfor process machinery and Equipment that are resistant to Mordant fluids, temperature extremes, and surface wear.
- Virgin PTFE
Virgin PTFE gaskets are produced directly from refined material
- Filled PTFE
Filled PTFE gaskets are made from Virgin PTFE material with adding some other elements to improve its Blockade properties
- Expanded PTFE
Expanded PTFE gaskets are produced through Virgin PTFE being expanded in a manner that creates uniform tension strength across the material.
