PTFE is principally used as a gasket material because of it’s capability to remain unaffected by the majority of chemicals used in industry. It is also classified, in most cases, as a food grade material, making it acceptable to both medical and food production industries. There are three basic types of PTFE gasket materials. Virgin PTFE , filled PTFE and expanded PTFE.
- Outstanding chemical resistance.
