James Walker® Gaskets & Jointings > PTFE gaskets



  PTFE gaskets
Fluolion® General Description
Fluolion® is the James Walker trade name for its ranges of special PTFE grades. Virgin Fluolion and a number of filled materials are processed in house by the company.
 
PRIME FEATURES
• Outstanding chemical resistance
• Non-corrosive, non-wetting, non-contaminating and odourless.
• Tolerates temperatures between –200°C and +260°C.
• Excellent electrical and thermal insulator in virgin form.
 
For general gasket duties, PTFE’s impressive list of properties is often marred by creep characteristics that cause loss of sealing stress with time. James Walker minimises these negative properties by using fillers, biaxial orientation and other devices that enable the manifold advantages of Fluolion gaskets to outweigh the possible disadvantages.
