Why choose Gylon

Well, Garlock GYLON® gasketing is a family of flat PTFE gasketing materials. GYLON® high-performance PTFE gasketing is manufactured using a proprietary process that imparts unique physical properties, which are not obtainable through conventional manufacturing methods: Designed for severe chemical service, color-coded for easy identification, superior sealability, which helps reduce process and media loss as well as fugitive emissions, reduced creep and cold flow characteristics, and patented thermal bonding process to fabricate virtually any size gasket. The innovative GYLON® gasketing process reorients the PTFE and fillers in such a way to increase the material’s tensile properties and decrease the creep relaxation problems that usually plague PTFE products. In addition, the mixing process creates a homogenous material with consistent, superior physical properties that, unlike inexpensive skived PTFE sheet materials, do not fluctuate from one side of the sheet to another. Well that's the technical stuff...., and as of 2 April 2014 Corseal now stock these sheets and are available on a next day delivery service, the sheeting can be sold on its own for engineering convenience or can be purchased in gaskets form also for same day dispatch in any flange configuration that is required, need to call for details. 01787 282444. they can also be purchased at www.corseal.co.uk or following page direct to... http://www.corseal.co.uk/collections/ptfe-products/products/gylon-3504
