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 DuPont. PTFE can be modified for use as a gasketing material with strong chemical resistance properties.

PTFE Gasketing Material - Inertex
The INERTEX® family of gasket sheets are produced by a proprietary expansion process which generates a highly fibrillated microstructure with nearly equal tensile strength in every direction. This unique structure maximizes performance predictability and stability while minimizing creep and cold flow.
PTFE Gasketing Material - Garlock Gylon
Garlock GYLON® gasketing is a family of flat PTFE gasketing materials. GYLON® high-performance PTFE gasketing is manufactured using a proprietary process that imparts unique physical properties, which are not obtainable through conventional manufacturing methods: Designed for severe chemical service, color-coded for easy identification, superior sealability, which helps reduce process and media loss as well as fugitive emissions, reduced creep and cold flow characteristics, and patented thermal bonding process to fabricate virtually any size gasket.
PTFE Gasketing Material - Thermoseal
Thermoseal's line of PTFE gasketing materials include the tc, Top Chem, Soft Chem, and SEALX lines.
PTFE Gasketing Material - Durlon 9000
Durlon® 9000 and 9000N are designed for applications where resistance to highly aggressive chemicals is required. Available in unpigmented white as style 9000N. Both styles 9000 and 9000N, (including branding) conform to FDA requirements.
