ePTFE Gasket Sheet

FLONSEAL™

About expanded PTFE Gasket Sheet

FLONSEAL™ ePTFE Sheet is a form of PTFE which is expanded and stretched in many different directions during the manufacturing process. This ‘multi-directional’, higher strength material demonstrates a reduced tendency to creep under load at elevated temperatures when compared with other PTFE gasket materials.

Polyflon’s ePTFE Sheet shows good mechanical recovery over long term compression and temperature fluctuation resulting in very low leakage rates and, due to the very soft texture of the material, conforms perfectly to pitted, uneven flange faces.
