Style 3500 - Fawn
PTFE with silica filler

ASTM F104: F451999A9B1E99K6M6

Garlock GYLON ® is truly a superior and unique material. The exclusive properties of GYLON ® are combined to deliver its superior performance to comply with today’s clean air requirements through sealability and torque retention.  Asbestos-free GYLON ® gasket materials routinely out-perform all conventional PTFE products by drastically minimizing gasket creep and cold flow problems.

 
Application
GARLOCK® 3500 is premium grade compressed sheet gasket material that is excellent in strong acids except hydrofluoric, solvents, hydrocarbons, water, steam, chlorine, and cryogenics, conforms to FDA regulations. For oxygen service, specify "Style 3502 for oxygen service.").

Tighter Seal
Improved performance over conventional PTFE. Reduced product loss and emissions.

Reduced creep relaxation
Unique manufacturing process minimizes cold flow problems typical of skived and expanded PTFE sheets

Chemical resistance
Withstands a wide range of chemical for extended service life in a wide variety of applications.

Cost savings
Cuts operational cost through reduced Fluid Loss, Energy Comsuption, Maintenance Costs, Inventory Costs and Waste.

Largest Sheet Sizes*
Offers some of the largest sheet sizes in the industry. Improved material utilization reduces waste.

Branding and color coding
Easy identification of superior GYLON products. Reduces misapplication and use of unauthorized, inferior substitutes.

Warning: Durlon gasket materials should never be recommended when both the temperature and the pressure are at the maximums listed. Properties and applications shown are typical. No application should be undertaken by anyone without independent study and evaluation for suitability. Never use more than one gasket in one flange joint, and never reuse a gasket. Improper use or gasket selection could cause property damage and/or serious personal injury. The data reported is a compilation of field testing, field service reports and/or in-house testing. While the utmost care has gone into publishing the information contained herein, we assume no responsibility for errors.
