Garlock BLUE GARD
Garlock products are high temperature rated materials that excel in the harshest of conditions such as intense heat and high pressure. These high performance gasket materials have been laboratory tested for fire safety and maintain an effective seal during pressure and temperature fluctuations. Their excellent torque retention lowers leakage rates and reduces maintenance time.
Garlock GYLON gasketing materials are a family of severe service PTFE gasketing materials manufactured using a proprietary process that imparts unique physical properties that are not obtainable through conventional methods. Designed for chemical service, GYLON gaskets are color-coded for easy identification and provide superior sealability to reduce process and media loss and fugitive emissions. They also reduce creep and cold flow characteristics.
Garlock GYLON EPIX
Garlock GYLON EPIX gasketing materials is a newly developed family of PTFE gaskets. It’s manufactured using a patented profiled surface based on proven Fawn, Off-White and Blue GYLON to create highly conformable materials for optimum sealing performance. Designed for increased compressability, GYLON EPIX improves performance in misaligned flanges. The consolidation of two thicknesses to one reduces the need to inventory multiple thicknesses.
GRAPH-LOCK is composed of pure, exfoliated flake material. It excels in extreme conditions and withstands high temperatures, high pressures, and aggressive chemicals. It also provides excellent resistance and is proven to be fire-safe. GRAPH-LOCK gasketing provides a reliable seal as it seals easily under moderate bolt load, offers superior torque retention, retains dimensional stability in high temperatures and seals tightly, even during pressure fluctuations. Flexible graphite is manufactured in such a manner that no organic or inorganic binders and fillers are introduced — the end product is essentially pure graphite with outstanding physical properties. The insertion of wire mesh, stainless steel foil, and tanged metal inserts increase strength and ease of handling.
