Garlock Gylon® 3500 Gasketing Material

Fawn PTFE with silica filler
Gylon 3500 Sheet Gasket Material

Application

Garlock Gylon® 3500 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-performs all conventional PTFE products by drastically minimizing gasket creep and cold flow problems.

Composition

Garlock Gylon® 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.

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.
