Trust takes time to earn but can be lost in seconds. That’s why people stick with brands that have served them well. Why risk something new when you already know what works? For this reason, many gasket buyers specify Garlock gasket material. Either they’ve had good experience with it or they know someone who has.
Garlock has been around for over a century, so they’re doing something right. While their business is sealing, Garlock focuses on the benefits gaskets deliver: keeping people safe and helping businesses be more profitable.
One hundred years ago we used natural materials like rubber and leather but industrial processes have changed since then. Today, increased temperatures and pressures demand gasket material that’s stronger and more resilient.
Garlock invests heavily in R&D to develop innovative materials that meet these challenges. Their research and testing facilities are state-of-the-art and they have a strong environmental commitment. Together, this ensures Garlock gasket material stays at the forefront of sealing technology.
An overview of Garlock gasket material
Whether you’re dealing with extreme temperatures, high pressures, vacuum or aggressive chemicals, there’s a Garlock material to suit. Scan their product catalog, (or speak with a Hennig specialist,) and you’ll discover PTFE in many grades, graphite, compressed fiber, and natural and synthetic rubber gaskets and gasket material.
Brand names you may be familiar with include GYLON® restructured PTFE, GRAPH-LOCK® flexible graphite sheet, BLUE-GARD® compressed rubber and THERMa-PUR Extreme Temperature material.
Known for excellent chemical resistance, GYLON® is used in many industries including pharmaceuticals and food processing. GRAPH-LOCK® is a high-temperature material with good creep-resistance. BLUE-GARD® also offers a wide temperature range and is available with a range of rubbers. THERMa-PUR, however, beats them all as it will operate at temperatures as high as 1,832°F (1,000°C).
