GYLON EPIX™ Style 3504 Gaskets- PTFE with Aluminosilicate Microspheres

PTFE Gasketing with Aluminosilicate Microspheres for Moderate Media

GYLON EPIX™ Style 3504 is a high performance, aluminosilicate microsphere filled PTFE sheet material designed for use in moderate concentrations of acids, and caustics, as well as hydrocarbons, refrigerants, and more.

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.

 

Features and Benefits

  • One thickness does the job of two
  • Seal performance and load retention equal of 1/16”
  • Compressibility and forgiveness/conformability of 1/8”
  • Patented hex profile creates superb sealing and ability to conform to imperfect flange surfaces
  • Same material as traditional GYLON®
