PTFE seals in the chemical process industry
Seals, flat gaskets or O-rings are required in almost all areas of technology. The medium to be sealed and the ambient and / or operating conditions determine the type, shape and material of the seal. In general, PTFE is widely used as both a static and a dynamic sealing material due to its universal chemical resistance, its high thermal stability from -200°C to +260°C and its elasticity.
Although there are many standards, in particular for flat gaskets in static gaskets, new designs - mainly for dynamic applications - constantly require new shapes and adaptations to existing or new operating conditions. This can only be achieved with many years of experience in sealing technology.
