Solving a Copper Mine’s Flange ChallengesFinally, the Perfect Solution for Imperfect Flanges.
The Next Generation in PTFE Gasketing
The all-new patented GYLON EPIX™ looks like no other gasket because it’s not like any other gasket. Its patented hexagonal surface profile combines best-in-class torque retention with exceptional conformity, allowing you to use a single thickness for nearly any application—even worn or pitted flanges.Faced with frequent leaks in its many miles of pipe, a copper mining customer was expending considerable time and manpower chasing leaks and retightening their flouroelastomer (FKM) rubber gaskets. Until they discovered the new GYLON EPIX™ gasket. From copper mining to chemical processing, GYLON EPIX™ delivers exceptional flange conformity and torque retention.
