The next level in PTFE gasketing
GYLON® EPIX is a newly developed family of PTFE gaskets. It is manufactured using a patented, profiled surface based on our proven Brick-Red, Off-White, and Blue GYLON® to create highly conformable materials for optimum sealing performance. The innovative GYLON® EPIX provides 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. GYLON® EPIX delivers the sealing and load retention properties of 1/16” and the conformability of 1/8”. The hexagonal profile provides improved compressibility and recovery. The profiled surface reduces the contact area during initial compression to concentrate the compressive force and to generate high-density-zones within the material, for improved sealability.
Designed for increased compressibility, GYLON® EPIX improves performance in misaligned flanges. The consolidation of two thicknesses to one reduces the need to inventory multiple thicknesses. Doing so, GYLON® EPIX also reduces time and effort to upheld and re-work plant standards and piping class calculations. Garlock is dedicated to providing real sealing solutions that meet real world sealing needs. With an improved design, color-coded materials and a single thickness, GYLON® EPIX makes sealing easier.
