Durlon® 9000/9000N Inorganic/PTFE

Various shapes of inorganic fillers have been homogeneously blended with pure PTFE resins to give DURLON® 9000 its physical and mechanical properties. It is suitable for use in steel flanges and will not exhibit the cold flow problems associated with virgin PTFE or the hardness problems of some other filled PTFE products. It cuts easily and separates cleanly from flanges after use

Application

It has been tested and approved for liquid chlorine, caustics, liquid oxygen, and high purity applications in the pharmaceutical industry. listed as an acceptable gasket material for dry chlorine service.

Specifications

  • Min Temperature: -212°C (-350°F)
  • Max Temperature: 271°C (520°F)
  • Max Continuous Temperature: 260°C (500°F)
  • Max Pressure: bar (psi) 103 (1,500)

Durlon® 9002 Inorganic/PTFE

Durlon® 9002 is an adaptation of the original glass-filled formula to better meet extreme cryogenic system demands. Durlon® 9002 has passed both gaseous, [up to 260°C (500°F) and 52 bar (754 psi)] and liquid oxygen tests performed by BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing. Durlon® 9002 has also been tested for LOX Mechanical Impact Sensitivity, passing with zero reactions out of twenty tests (0/20) at a test reaction frequency of 0%.

Application

  • extreme cryogenic system demands
  • liquid oxygen

Specifications

  • Min Temperature: -212°C (-350°F)
  • Max Temperature: 271°C (520°F)
  • Max Continuous Temperature: 260°C (500°F)
  • Max Pressure: bar (psi) 103 (1,500)

Durlon® 9200 Barium Sulfate/PTFE

Barium sulfate fillers are homogeneously blended with pure PTFE resins to give DURLON® 9200 its physical and mechanical properties. Independent testing has shown the fillers in DURLON® 9200 to be more evenly dispersed than filled PTFE with layered construction. The result is more consistent physical and mechanical properties without the voids, separation and chemical compatibility problems found in layered filled PTFE. It is suitable for use in steel flanges, will not exhibit the cold flow problems associated with virgin or generic skived PTFE or the hardness problems of some other filled PTFE products. It has excellent sealability, cuts easily and separates cleanly from flanges after use.

Application

  • DURLON® 9200 is a filled PTFE gasket material designed for use in aggressive chemicals. Including caustics, hydrogen peroxide, sodium hypochlorite, nitric acid, liquors and digester in pulp and paper service. Applications In the chemical, pharmaceutical and plastics industries include butadiene, hydrofluoric acid, vinyl chloride, methyl methacrylates, and styrene. It is also used extensively in railroad tankcar applications and can be used where resistance to highly aggressive chemicals is required. Style 9200 (granite white, branded) conforms to FDA requirements.
  • OXYGEN: DURLON® 9200 has been independently tested and certified by the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing, Berlin (BAM) for gaseous oxygen at pressures up to 40 bar (585 psi) and temperatures up to 200°C (392°F), and for service in liquid oxygen. Gaskets for oxygen service can be supplied from distributor stocks, providing proper cleaning procedures for oxygen service are followed before installation.
  • Note: That as a class, PTFE gasket materials are not recommended in liquid oxygen services where there is thermal cycling due to thermal shock and the difference of the coefficient of expansion between PTFE and steel.

Specifications

  • Min Temperature: -212°C (-350°F)
  • Max Temperature: 271°C (520°F)
  • Max Continuous Temperature: 260°C (500°F)

Durlon® 9400 Carbon/PTFE

DURLON® 9400 is made of pure PTFE resins combined with carbon fillers homogeneously dispersed throughout the compound. DURLON® 9400 does not exhibit the cold flow problems associated with virgin PTFE yet has excellent sealability, flexibility, non-sticking and cutting characteristics. DURLON® 9400 also demonstrates good electrical conducting properties.

Application

DURLON® 9400 gasket material is a high performance filled PTFE designed for use in piping and equipment in chemical, pharmaceutical, food and other general industrial applications where resistance to highly aggressive chemicals (including hydrofluoric acid) is required. Style 9400 conforms to FDA requirements. It can also be used as gasketing for anhydrous hydrogen fluoride (AHF) in railroad tank cars and in plants as a material of construction where barium sulfate filled PTFE may not prove suitable

Specifications

  • Min Temperature: -212°C (-350°F)
  • Max Temperature: 288°C (550°F)
  • Max Continuous Temperature: 260°C (500°F)
  • Max Pressure: bar (psi) 103 (1,500)

Durlon® 9600 Expanded PTFE

DURLON® 9600 is made with only pure PTFE resins. It is suitable for use in steel flanges and as well as flanges where a highly compressible gasket is required. DURLON® 9600 is also suitable for sealing flanges with irregular surfaces. It will not exhibit the cold flow problems associated with virgin PTFE or the hardness problems of some other filled PTFE products. It has excellent sealability, cuts easily and separates cleanly from flanges after use.

Application

DURLON® 9600 is an expanded PTFE gasket material designed for use in process piping and equipment in chemical, pulp and paper, food and beverage and other general industrial applications where resistance to highly aggressive chemicals is required.

DURLON® 9600 is suitable for use in steel flanges and flanges with irregular surfaces. Durlon® 9600 (including branding) conforms to FDA requirements.

Specifications

  • Min Temperature: -212°C (-350°F)
  • Max Temperature: 316°C (600°F)
  • Max Continuous Temperature: 260°C (500°F)
