Durlon 9000® Gasket Material

durlon-blue

Gasket Resources Inc.’s Durlon® 9000 (blue) and 9000N (neutral) materials are designed for use in process piping and equipment in chemical, pulp & paper, pharmaceutical, oxygen & industrial gases, food & beverage, and other general industrial applications.

These gasket sheets are excellent choices where physical properties such as non-contamination and resistance to highly aggressive chemicals are required.

Durlon® 9000 has been tested, approved and used for chlorine and caustics services. Unlike generic skived PTFE, the various shapes of fillers in Durlon® 9000 are homogeneously blended with pure PTFE resins and do not wick or cause corrosion on flange faces.durlon-white

 

Also, independent testing has shown the fillers in Durlon® 9000 to be more evenly dispersed than filled PTFE with layered construction. Therefore, it has more consistent physical and mechanical properties and does not have voids, separation and chemical compatibility problems found in layered PTFE.

PTFE Products

molded-ptfePolytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) also known as Teflon® is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene. Invented by DuPont, PTFE can be modified and shaped for use as a gasketing material with strong chemical resistance properties.

Advantages of using PTFE include:

  • Not affected to most chemicals.
  • Can be used at temperatures up to 500°F (260°C).
  • The lowest coefficient of friction of any solid material.

Seal & Design offers PFTE Gasket materials from producers such as Inertex® and Garlock® GYLON® as well as PTFE O-Rings.
