The customer is a plastics manufacturer that produces polyvinyl alcohol powder. Their feedstock is vinyl acetate monomer and methanol. They also have acetic acid applications.
The customer used a gasket on their stainless-steel flat face and raised face flanges that caused compatibility issues. The resulting flange failures caused unplanned downtime and increased maintenance costs. As a result, the customer needed to find a new gasket solution.
The customer selected GYLON® Style 3545 as their new gasket solution. GYLON® Style 3545 has unmatched universal chemical compatibility, eliminating their previous failure issues. Additionally, the customer decided to standardize GYLON® Style 3545 across their facility, which helped them consolidate their gasket inventory. Ultimately, this update resulted in cost savings for the customer.
