Medium_gylon_3504-crop160


Description
Gylon® 3504 is a highly compressible grade of Gylon®, comprising PTFE with a filler of glass microspheres. It is blue in colour.

Garlock Sealing Technologies' unique Gylon® manufacturing process retains all the positive characteristics of PTFE, but minimises or eliminates the creep and flow problems associated with conventional PTFE products.



Typical applications 
This highly-compressible modified-PTFE material is designed for applications where efficient flange sealing is required at low bolt loads. It is recommended for use with glass-lined, enamelled or plastic flanges in the chemical, pharmaceutical, food orocessing, and electronics sectors.
