Low-load gasket

October 3, 2012
Compliant with FDA, NSF61 and USP Class VI requirements, the Garlock low-load gasket seals lightweight metallic, plastic and fiberglass flanges that cannot provide the proper loads to compress conventional fiber or PTFE gaskets. Its 100% PTFE material with glass microspheres provides cold-flow and creep resistance. Molded, raised, concentric ribs create a tight seal on flat- and raised-face flanges. The gasket’s 1-piece construction prevents leaching, delamination and foldover.
