Gore Introduces Universal Pipe Gasket that Seals All Types of Chemical Process Piping
Elkton, Md.,December 18, 2003 - W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. announces the introduction of a breakthrough development in gasketing products for chemical process piping. New GORE(TM) Universal Pipe Gaskets enable users to standardize their gasket applications across steel, glass-lined steel, and FRP systems wherever a non-metallic gasket can be used. The result: lower overall sealing costs, simplified maintenance procedures, and easier inventory management.
Unaffected by even the most aggressive chemicals, GORE(TM) Universal Pipe Gaskets provide exceptional performance in three important areas: seal reliability, conforming to irregular surfaces, and protecting flanges. They are engineered to deliver superior bolt load retention, and achieve exceptional creep resistance for reliable sealing of steel piping flanges. Moreover, they deliver the lowest stress-to-seal in even the most fragile plastic and glass-lined flanges.
GORE Universal Pipe Gaskets deliver exceptional sealing reliability across pipe classes. Gaskets operate at temperatures up to 600°F (315°C) and pressures up to 3,000 psi, thereby allowing their use across virtually all chemical process piping systems. Installation procedures are simple, too.
W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. is a creative technology company employing more than 6,000 associates in 48 plants, in 16 countries throughout the world. For over 30 years, Gore's Sealant Technologies Group has developed innovative PTFE gaskets, seals and other fluid-sealing products for both standard and unique sealing and pumping applications.
