Four top quality PTFE-based materials for every application

KLINGERtop-chem offer the advantages of PTFE gaskets without the disadvantages commonly associated with PTFE materials. This allows you to use these materials in applications where traditionally they are unsuitable, saving you maintenance time and improving plant safety.
As an example, a comparison of the load bearing performance of KLINGERtop-chem-2000 with that of rival products is shown in the diagram below. With KLINGERtopchem- 2000, the high relaxation typical of standard PTFE gaskets is not observed. The results demonstrate that at a load of 50 MPa and temperature of 200°C, the relaxation of this material is only 1.6%, ensuring
that bolt forces are maintained even under severe conditions.
The two new grades KLINGER top-chem-2005 and -2006 now offer a solution for PTFE-standard applications.
They differ in respect to their chemical resistance: KLINGERtop-chem-2005 is particularly suited for general chemical and strongly acidic applications. KLINGERtop-chem-2006 is the better choice for caustic medias.
By way of an introduction to the properties of the KLINGERtop-chem range, the matrix on the following page presents the attributes of the individual grades. The table illustrates that for all PTFE applications a suitable material can be selected from the KLINGERtop-chem range.
The detailed performance data on the following pages will help you to choose the correct material for your application, ensuring the safe performance of the gasket. The following short description of the four grades provides a general overview of properties and is the first step towards making this choice.
