PTFE Gaskets

 
JA Harrison now supplies PTFE Gaskets in all sizes throughout the UK. PTFE has proved to be a very valuable material for a number of applications including gaskets.
PTFE has a number of useful properties which make it such an important material.
  • PTFE is inert, which means it does not react with other chemicals. It is inert to all oxidation agents and acids.
  • PTFE is hydrophobic. It repels all aqueous solvents so it cannot get wet nor does it dissolve or corrode.
  • PTFE has excellent electrical insulating capabilities
  • PTFE is thermally stable over a wide range of temperatures.
  • PTFE is non-flammable even when exposed to prolonged heat.
  • PTFE is resistant to atmospheric factors, oxidation and UV light.

 

These are the qualities that have made PTFE such a dominant material for more than 70 years. PTFE Gaskets have great advantages because of these properties and can be used in a range of industrial processes. In addition PTFE is also subject to creep. Creeping is the slight deformation of a substance when stressed is applied to it.
The conformability of PTFE enables it to mate with surfaces properly and form a reliable seal. To control its creeping property, PTFE gaskets have been modified through the use of filler materials or by the expansion of the PTFE itself. This helps control the creeping and in addition gives more durability to the gasket by enhancing its physical properties.
Applications
  • Aggressive or toxic fluids
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Industry Food Industry
  • Chemical Industry
