Gore® Joint Sealant DF
Versatile and easy-to-install, 100% ePTFE sealing cord is a cost-effective solution for large steel flanges in general-use applications.
Universal solution for large steel flanges in general-use applications.
Joint Sealant, the first form-in-place gasket, was invented by Gore more than 40 years ago. It is a time-tested sealing solution for steel flanges with large diameters, rectangular or irregular shapes, and rough or pitted surfaces. When compressed, this soft, conformable cord forms a thin yet strong seal. It can also seal applications where available bolt loads are low.
Versatile GORE® Joint Sealant is standard sealing material for many MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) teams because it seals reliably – and because it’s easy and cost-effective to install. For most applications, just peel off the adhesive backing, apply to the surface, and overlap the ends.
Form-in-place gasket solution, as GORE® Joint Sealant, may be used for preparation of a gasket of any shape and unlimited size. Fabrication of division bars is particularly easy and effective. The joint does not represent a weak point of the gasket, as confirmed by independent body (TÜV) in TA-Luft Certificate.
GORE® Joint Sealant is predominantly used on large diameter (typically >400 mm) steel flanges of storage tanks, columns and other equipment operating in moderate conditions.
