Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene that has numerous applications. It is also known by the common trade name TEFLON™, which is trademarked by Chemours. PTFE can be modified for use as a gasketing material with strong chemical resistance properties.
KeyProperties of Teflon Gasket
Teflon gasket is chemical resistant and can define their existence in the most corrosive of environments.It will never contaminate the most sensitive medium.
Teflon is completely insoluble and has very high inherent of purity and can be manufactured with no contamination It cannot be affected by lubricants, hydraulic fluids and atmospheric conditions.It is completely chemical resistant.
Industrial Applications For Teflon® Gaskets
PTFE gaskets are used in many industrial applications, especially the following:
- Compressor – High temperature and surface-wear resistant sealing gaskets.
- Electric Motor – Sealing gaskets for components that require corrosion-resistance, exposure to high and low temperatures and high surface wear.
- Medical Component – Seals for electronic instrumentation using materials that provide secure seals and long product life. Specialty gaskets, especially miniature sizes, are required for many medical devices.
- Petrochemical – Gaskets for process equipment that are resistant to corrosive fluids, temperature extremes, and surface wear.
Services & Capabilities
Using the latest manufacturing technologies and processes, Jain Mill Stores produces custom PTFE gaskets that meet the requirements demanded by our customers.
- Die cutting – Die cutting produces exact, complex gasket shapes. Our state-of-the-art software provides efficient use of materials for high yields. High cutting speeds allow fast production and delivery of parts. We can manufacture to ± .015” tolerances on die-cut parts.
- Waterjet cutting – Waterjet cutting allows for precise positioning for manufacturing and a high degree of repeatability for efficient production runs. Our CNC-controlled water jet cutting machinery can accurately cut PTFE materials up to 6” thick. Tolerances are based on the size and thickness of the material being cut.
- Guaranteed delivery – We are committed to providing you with your orders when you need them. Our Emergency Delivery Service is an exclusive expedited production service for urgent orders. It provides expedited turnarounds, with some orders produced within 24 hours.
