Gasketing is offered in wide range of non-asbestos materials including GYLON® restructured PTFE gaskets, an industry standard for resistance to aggressive chemicals, and its extreme grade gasketing with Flange Free™ anti-stick coating. A patented heat welding process enables the production of one-piece gaskets instead of separate segments that had to be spliced together. Our products include engineered low-load styles available in either sheet form or as discreet gaskets as well as materials to effectively seal metallic piping.
High Pressure Sheet (HPS)
Compressed fiber sheet gasket material, a stalwart of the Garlock product line, has been improved and expanded over the years. The materials have been reformulated and upgraded, and the HPS manufacturing process now uses an environmentally friendly non-VOC solvent. In addition, Garlock’s environmental controls now include a solvent recovery system that captures emissions and recycles them into the production process. Solvent recovery is used in the production of both high pressure sheet and GYLON. HPS gasketing sheet is now made in Palmyra, New York, and Mexico. It is cut in Palmyra, Mexico, Houston, Great Britain, Germany, Dubai, Australia, Singapore, Shanghai and Brazil.
a static seal for ultra-high temperature applications such as marine exhaust systems and fuel cells was also launched in 2011. Representing both a new product and production process, it took over three years to develop.
