GYLON EPIX™ Style 3501-E PTFE Gaskets (EU ONLY)

Universal gasket for applications in Chemical and Petrochemical Markets

GYLON EPIX™ Style 3501-E is a high performance, silica filled PTFE sheet material designed for use with strong acids, solvents, hydrocarbons, and other aggressive media. GYLON EPIXTM Style 3501-E withstands a wide range of chemicals for extended service in a wide variety of applications.

GYLON EPIX™ will provide superior functional performance by combining the traditional attributes of GYLON® with an innovative surface design. It offers a broader range of applications than traditional PTFE gaskets that are used in worn and pitted flanges. In addition, 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 to concentrate the compressive force of the flange for improved sealability.
