Gore Sealants attended the ACHEMA 2012 - Frankfurt/Main (Germany) June 18-22

At the ACHEMA Trade Show, W. L. Gore & Associates was shortlisted for the Innovation Award in the Valves/Seals/Pipes/Fittings product category.

The nomination was based on the introduction of the new GORE® Series 500 Gasket Tape for large steel flanges that had been launched on March 1, 2012.

Building on its patented expanded PTFE (ePTFE) technology, Gore’s new tape enables industrial plants to save time, money and trouble compared to conventional large gaskets.

Inspired by the motto “Advanced Sealing Solutions You Can Rely On” Gore Sealants showcased their latest solutions at the ACHEMA in Hall 9.0 at Booth B14.

The highlight of this tradeshow was the new GORE® Series 500 Gasket Tape , but Gore Sealants also showed their overall expertise in sealant technologies for high demanding processes. Visitors could see the product in a real application - a mini heat exchanger - and also watch videos on how the new GORE® Series 500 Gasket Tape had been installed on the flanges.

They could also get an overview on Gore’s “Commitment to Innovation” and expertise in expanded PTFE. Visitors got the chance to "feel the difference" between ePTFE and conventional PTFE and learn more about the benefits of ePTFE technology for better gasket performance.

Last, but not least, Holger Schroers, Field Sales associate at W.L Gore & Associates GmbH, presented a paper at the ACHEMA Congress: "Challenges for plant operators selecting gaskets in the context of environmental protection, safety and costs."

The team is looking forward to attending the next ACHEMA in 2015.
