Expanded Pure PTFE Strip Gasket with Adhesive Backing
As it is known, gaskets are used at many points as a sealing element in our facilities. However, at some points, gasket cutting and assembly are more difficult than thought. According to the shape of the surface to be sealed, a lot of time is lost during cutting and material losses are experienced. In addition, even new gaskets can not get enough efficiency on damaged surfaces.
JM Clipperlon 600 Sealant with adhesive backing, the details of which can be found in the brochure on the right of the page, is used in areas where it is difficult to cut (manhole covers, tank covers, heat exchangers, pump stage connections, points with thin invoice surface, etc. . ), and can be used easily on damaged flange surfaces, all food applications because it is 100% PTFE, in connections with a larger diameter than the plate dimensions. Also, thanks to its high crushability, JM Clipperlon 600 provides a much better sealing than standard gaskets.
Teflon PTFE gaskets are made of a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene, which consists entirely of carbon and fluorine. It is naturally hydrophobic (repels water and substances containing water) and has one of the lowest coefficients of friction against any solid. PTFE has excellent dielectric properties and provides excellent thermal insulation in the operating temperature range of -200°C to 260°C. PTFE is the most chemically resistant plastic known and is unaffected by most corrosive liquids, vapors and gases. Teflon gasket products provide exceptional chemical resistance for tasks where hygiene and contamination are not required.
What is Teflon Gasket?
Due to the molecular structure of Teflon, i.e. PTFE material, they do not react with any chemical substance. One of the most important features of Teflon gasket, which has very low impact resistance and mechanical values, is that it does not stick to the material. In addition to its zero moisture absorption, it has a wide range of uses thanks to its wide operating temperature range, very low friction coefficient, and superior electrical insulation properties. Teflon is basically one of the most stable materials. The physical and molecular properties of Teflon do not change up to 260 degrees. Teflon gaskets can be manufactured from hex plates in accordance with DIN EN 1514-1 and ASME B16.21 standards or by cutting them in special sizes and forms upon request.
What Does Teflon Gasket Do?
PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) is completely unique. It is an inert material. Therefore, it has excellent resistance to most mineral and organic chemicals such as acids, bases and solvents. It can be used at temperatures up to approximately 260ºC. PTFE is often used in the presence of aggressive chemicals because it is inert. It can be used to fit certain hole sizes as a bore liner to protect pipe seals from chemical attack.
How Does Teflon Gasket Work?
There are many components that play an important role in running industrial operations. PTFE Gaskets are one of the commonly used components in industries. PTFE or Polytetrafluoroethylene, commonly known as TEFLON, is used as a sealing material by PTFE gasket manufacturers due to its physical and chemical properties. Modified PTFE gasket sheets are also used as sealants for special purposes. PTFE can be defined as a synthetic fluoropolymer that provides low friction and provides high corrosion resistance. Other important properties of PTFE include high melting temperature, high flexibility and high surface wear. All these features make PTFE gasket sheets suitable for a variety of applications. While standard gaskets are available for common applications, these non-metallic gaskets can be designed with other materials to improve gasket performance for specific requirements. Also, another important benefit of using gaskets made of PTFE is long product life, even after continuous use. This product’s benefit is that it minimizes maintenance costs for product owners.
What are the Benefits of Teflon Gasket?
Teflon is a versatile gasket material. It is a fluoroelastomer, a synthetic compound available in many forms. For industrial use, PTFE’s low friction suits plain bearings, gears, slide plates and other applications with the sliding action of parts, outperforming both acetal and nylon in these functions. PTFE produces longer-lasting, higher-performance parts that reduce machine friction, wear and energy consumption, lower maintenance costs, and increase the lifetime of both parts and machines. Because of its high-temperature rating and not extremely reactive, PTFE is also often used in containers, expansion joints, linings in hose assemblies, industrial pipelines and other applications involving corrosive and reactive chemicals.
Where is Teflon Gasket Used?
Teflon gasket has an extremely wide usage area due to its excellent chemical resistance. Since it is prone to creep and fatigue, it can be used as a gasket or as a protection for some other gaskets. Teflon gasket has the feature of being a self-adhesive, flexible, soft and very strong static sealing material. It is resistant to all chemicals used in industry and weather conditions. Thanks to its special structure, it can be easily clamped between flange surfaces. It is also effective in providing a precise seal by forming a wide and thin strip under pressure. It is possible to use Teflon gaskets safely in all connections. Some application areas of Teflon gasket include pump and compressor flanges, glass and ceramic connections, large diameter flanges, concrete covers, manhole covers, glass-reinforced plastic equipment and pipe connections, damaged and rough surfaces, smoke channels and connections requiring low compression force. PTFE seals are used for the transportation of chemicals and petrochemicals as they are resistant to corrosive liquids and extreme temperatures. Except for some alkali metals and fluorine compounds, PTFE resists most chemicals at various pressures and temperatures. In addition, PTFE performs well in applications where the sealant comes into contact with hydraulic fluids. PTFE is a material used in the pharmaceutical and medical equipment industries. They can be implanted, and you can find them as miniature-size PTFE sealants in components such as catheters, etc. PTFE can withstand surface wear and tear that is likely to occur in the processes involved in pharmaceutical manufacturing in pharmaceutical companies. The chemical and temperature resistance of PTFE enables the industry to obtain safe sealants for their specific purposes. Secure seals made using PTFE gasket sheet also prevent contamination of drugs and other mishaps during production. PTFE works as an excellent component for electrical components such as transformers, electric motor and various power tools. The stability of PTFE sealants at high temperatures and chemical environments provides high performance in these applications. Corrosion resistance and surface wear are reasons for using PTFE as a sealing material in electrical applications.
What are the Teflon Gasket Features?
Teflon has different types such as pure Teflon, carbon Teflon, bronze Teflon and glass fiber Teflon. Pure Teflon (PTFE): It has a wide temperature range of -200C/+260C. It is a flexible and soft material that stands out with its excellent chemical resistance, very low coefficient of friction, non-stickiness, superior electrical insulation properties, non-flammability, high resistance to moisture and various ambient conditions. With the advantage of its molecular structure, it does not react with any chemicals except alkaline metals at high pressure and temperature. Carbon Teflon: Its thermal expansion is less than pure Teflon. In addition to its higher abrasion resistance, its deformation under load is also low. Carbon Teflon, which is durable in corrosive environments and has high thermal conductivity, has high abrasion resistance in dry and oily environments. There are two types of Teflon containing 25% and 35% carbon. Bronze Teflon: Bronze alloy Teflon has better thermal conductivity and higher wear resistance. However, its thermal expansion and deformation under load are less. In addition to its high resistance to abrasion and cold flow, it can be processed mechanically more easily. While its chemical resistance is less than carbon and glass fiber Teflon, its thermal conductivity is high. There are two types containing 15% and 25% Glass Fiber. Glass Fiber Teflon: Compared to pure Teflon, it has higher abrasion resistance and less thermal expansion. It has less deformation under load, higher resistance to abrasion and cold flow, higher resistance to acids and oxidation, and higher electrical insulation properties.
