GYLON EPIX™ Gaskets
GYLON EPIX™ Gaskets – The next generation of PTFE Gaskets
At M Barnwell Services we stock GYLON EPIX™, a newly developed range of PTFE gaskets ideal for Chemical Processing. Manufactured through patented, profiled surfaces based on proven Fawn, Off-White, and Blue GYLON®, GYLON EPIX™ possesses highly conformable materials providing peak sealing performance.
GYLON EPIX™ provides optimum functional performance by combining the traditional attributes of GYLON® with an innovative surface design, providing a broader range of applications than traditional PTFE gaskets. Additionally, GYLON EPIX™ delivers the tight sealing and load retention properties of 1/16” (1.6mm) and the conformability of 1/8” (3.2mm). The hexagonal profile provides improved compressibility and recovery. The profiled surface reduces the contact area during initial compression, concentrating the compressive force of the flange for improved sealability.
Designed for increased compressibility, GYLON EPIX™ improves performance in misaligned flanges. The consolidation of two thicknesses to one decreases the requirement to inventory multiple thicknesses. With an improved design, color-coded materials, and single thickness, GYLON EPIX™ makes sealing easier.
