Gasket→PTFE Gasket
Filled PTFE Sheet Gasket - Flexitallic Sigma
Sigma has unique biaxial fibrillated structure and excellent dimensional stability, and maximum reduction in creep and stress relaxation of PTFE by combining these fillers. The PTFE material has excellent chemical resistance (pH 0 ~ 14) and good cleanliness can be widely used for alkali and corrosive fluids, very suitable for food, medicine, electronics (except hydrofluoric acid), and pressure range from vacuum to 8.5MPa. SIGMA sheet gasket is softer and lower stress requirement than pure PTFE, it can be used in glass lined, plastic, ceramic flange; and good sealing performance to slender or damaged flange surface, or low loading conditions.
