The GORE® Gasket Tape Series 500 is the preferred sealant product option for steel piping and equipment. It features a design that encapsulates the latest advances in worry-free sealing performance, with an improved creep resistance that allows you to “set it and forget it”. It is the perfect sealing choice for large steel-flanged applications where operational reliability is paramount.
Its highly compressible form creates a very tight, long-lasting seal that fits any shape and is resistant to virtually any chemical process. The Series 500 Tape’s ability to create a quick seal easily allows it to stand out amongst traditional large gaskets. It provides you with the opportunity to create a truly custom seal during installation, instead of having to invest time into ordering pre-cut gaskets that take up storage space and don’t provide the reliability and quality you need to get the job done quickly and correctly.
Series 500 Gasket Tape is brought to you by a leader in ePTFE Technology. Our reputation is built on providing the knowledge, integrity, and results that you expect from a manufacturer that has decades of experience working with processing plants throughout the world.
Technical Data Material
100% expanded PTFE (ePTFE), with multi-directional strength
Temperatures Range of Materials
-268°C + 315°C (-450°F +600°F)
Chemical resistance to all media pH 0-14, except molten alkali metals and elemental fluorine
The specific application governs the operating range of the installed gasket due to the strong influence of many factors, such as operating temperature, flange size, gasket stress, and installation practices. Please consult Gore for application engineering support when operating pressures exceed 40 Bar (580 psi).
The ePTFE gasket is not subject to aging and can be stored indefinitely. To minimize adhesive degradation, store the product in ambient conditions.
