When a reliable seal is needed in challenging situations – including exposure to high pressures and temperatures, abrasion, imperfect flange surfaces and harmful chemicals – Gore provides reliable sealing solutions. Gore sealing products are durable, long-lasting and highly conformable.
It’s more than just a seal. In manufacturing environments, sealing solutions need to contain aggressive media, protect equipment, and reduce emissions, all while maintaining their integrity despite exposure to chemicals and extreme temperatures. In civil and military aerospace environments, they are trusted to stand up to corrosion and abrasion, protecting the aircraft and everyone on board.
For more than 40 years, Gore has provided sealing solutions for industrial and aerospace applications. Our products include sheet gasketing, cut pipe gaskets, form-in-place tapes, joint sealants and packing.
What sets our sealing solutions apart is their use of expanded PTFE, or ePTFE. Inherently chemically inert, waterproof, thermally stable and mechanically robust, ePTFE keeps our sealing solutions robust, even when exposed to aggressive chemicals, friction, or high or even very low temperatures. In fact, some of our tapes and gasket solutions can withstand temperatures up to 315°C and down to -269°C (600°F down to -452°F), making them ideal for a range of applications and industries.
A prime example of ePTFE in action is GORE® Gasket Tape Series 500, a 100% ePTFE tape used to seal large and/or non-standard steel flanges. GORE Gasket Tape is conformable and has a tight, long-lasting seal — and it only requires one person to install. Its easy handling and industry-leading creep resistance can lead to significant time and financial savings, along with increased productivity.
Another example are GORE™ SKYFLEX™ Aerospace Materials, available in a variety of tapes and gaskets. Commonly used as alternatives to Form-In-Place seals in commercial and military aircraft, SKYFLEX materials combine ePTFE with other proprietary processes to resist fuels and aviation fluids, withstand extreme temperatures, and remain in place under compression — all factors critical to the success of the aircraft in production and operation.
