When a reliable seal is needed in challenging situations – including exposure to high pressures and temperatures, abrasion, imperfect flange surfaces and harmful chemicals – Gore provides reliable sealing solutions. Gore sealing products are durable, long-lasting and highly conformable.
Gaskets for Industrial Applications
GORE® Gaskets provide fast, easy installation and tight, reliable sealing for glass-lined steel, plastic and steel flanges in the most demanding industrial applications worldwide. Made of 100% ePTFE, this chemically-inert tape, cord and sheet gasketing resists attack by everything except molten alkali metals and elemental fluorine. Exceptional temperature resistance (-450° F to 600° F) makes Gore Gaskets suitable for applications ranging from cryogenic to high-temperature processes.
GORE® Sealant Technologies. For the Toughest Industrial Applications.
GORE Sealant Technologies provide reliable fluid sealing for the most demanding applications in the chemical processing, pulp & paper, mining & minerals, semiconductor manufacturing, utilities, power generation and marine industries.
Following characteristics are common for all GORE® Sealant materials.
|Material||100% expanded PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene)|
|Chemical Resistance||Chemical resistance to all media pH 0-14, except molten alkali metals and elemental fluorine.|
|Operating Range||The maximum applicable pressure and temperature depend mainly on the equipment and installation. Typical use: -60°C to 230°C; industrial full vacuum(1) to 40 bar Maximum use: -269°C to 315°C; full vacuum to 210 bar For applications outside the typical use range, Gore recommends an application specific engineering design calculation and extra care during installation. Also, consider retorquing after a thermal cycle when the equipment has returned to an ambient temperature condition. Please contact Gore if further guidance is required.|
|Shelf Life||ePTFE is not subject to aging and can be stored indefinitely.|
Detailed installation instructions, recommendations on size selections and gasket calculation factors are contained in Gore literature.
