    Gylon® Styles

    Meeting FDA, ABS and USDA specifications, this Fawn Gylon with Silica can be used with Strong acids (except hydrofluoric), steam, solvents, hydrocarbons, chlorine and cryogenics.

    Manufactured in Europe, this grade is suitable for use with Strong acids (except hydrofluoric), steam, solvents, hydrocarbons, chlorine and cryogenics. It meets BAM, FDA, KTW, and TA-Luft specifications.

    Arguably the best known material in the Gylon range, this PTFE with Aluminosilicate microspheres meets FDA specifications and is suitable for use with acids, some caustics, refrigerants and cryogenics.

    This PTFE with barium sulphate is resistant to strong caustics, moderate acids, chlorine, gases, water, steam, cryogenics, hydrocarbons and aluminium fluoride.

    This FDA compliant, PTFE gasketing material is designed to compress and conform to irregular or damaged surface. This makes it suitable for flanges that generate lower stresses, such as lined flanges and equipment.

    This is a micro-cellular PTFE, but with a rigid PTFE core for improved handling. It is suitable for glass-lined, or damaged flanges, as it will conform under much lower pressures. It meets the following specifications: ABS, FDA 21 CFR 177.1550.
    Garlock Envelon™ is a high performance, aluminosilicate microsphere filled PTFE gasketing material which is designed to compress and conform to irregular surfaces, giving it a tight seal on glass-lined and wavy flanges.

    We also offer Garlocks’ patented Gylon® thermal bonding process which allows us to manufacture and supply very large gaskets without dovetailed joints, for excellent chemical resistance and sealing performance. Available on 3501, 3504 and 3510.

    Special Order Range

    The following products complement the main Gylon® range and are available to special order subject to minimum order quantities.

    Gylon® Bio-Line® range of gaskets for the pharmaceutical and food processing industries
    Gylon Bio-Pro® gaskets are part of the Bio-Line® range of seals particularly designed for the food and pharmaceutical industries where down-time is not an option. They provide a durable and safe solution for protecting the integrity of food and pharmaceutical processing media. Their modified and restructured PTFE material is pre-formed and stress controlled for all standard TRI-CLAMP connections.
    Gylon® 3505 gaskets are made from a high performance, aluminosilicate microsphere filled PTFE gasketing material that is designed for use in oxygen service. Gylon® 3505 is also NSF 61-approved for use in potable water service, and an excellent choice for water lines where electrical isolation properties are necessary. Meets NSF 61, FDA, and USP Class VI specifications.
    Style HP 3560 is a silica filled, high performance, PTFE gasketing material that has a perforated 316L stainless steel insert for improved pressure resistance (It can withstand up to 2,500 PSI).
    Suitable for use with.
    Solvents, Hydrocarbons, Water, Steam, Chlorine, Cryogenics

    Style HP 3561 is a barium sulfate filled, high performance, PTFE gasketing material that has a perforated 316L stainless steel insert for improved pressure resistance (can withstand up to 2,500 PSI).
    Commonly used with the following.
    Caustics, Chlorine, Gases, Water, Steam, Hydrocarbons, Cryogenics, Aluminum fluoride.

    Introducing the Gylon Epix® Range of Materials - PTFE Gaskets' Next Generation

    is a recently developed family of PTFE gaskets. It is produced using a patented, profiled surface based on our proven Fawn, Off-White, and Blue GYLON® to create highly conformable materials for optimum sealing performance.

    GYLON EPIX® will provide superior functional performance by combining the traditional attributes of GYLON® with an innovative surface design. It offers a wider range of applications than traditional PTFE gaskets, that are used in worn and pitted flanges. Additionally, GYLON EPIX® provides 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, and the profiled surface reduces the contact area during initial compression, to concentrate the compressive force of the flange, for improved sealing.

    Designed for increased compressibility, GYLON EPIX® improves performance in misaligned flanges. The consolidation of two thicknesses to one reduces the need to stock multiple thicknesses. Therefore, with an improved design, color-coded materials, and single thickness, GYLON EPIX® makes sealing easier.

    We are happy to advise on any application, but final responsibility lies with the customer.

    Gylon® is a registered name of Garlock, an Enpro (NYSE: NPO) Company.
