Soft-Tef sheet gasketing is made of 100% expanded PTFE. The special proprietary expansion process generates a highly fibrillated microstructure, making the sheet soft and pliable. The material is very tough and can withhold high compressive loads without affecting its sealing capability. Soft-Tef has excellent resistance to creep relaxation and cold flow and is exceptional in sealing damaged and uneven flanges.
Expanded PTFE is so versatile because of its capabilities to handle nearly all liquid and gases. It is usually used throughout the Pharmaceutical, Chemical Manufacturing, Food & Beverage, Distilling, Marine, Pulp and Paper processing, Power Generation and Petrochemical industries.
Expanded PTFE is incomparable in sealing fragile flanges, FRP, Plastic, Porcelain and glass lined piping or vessels due to its low compressive load to seal.
Available 1500mm x 1500mm sheets in 1.5mm and 3.0mm thickness, standard flange gaskets or custom sizes for all applications.
