FEP Encapsulated Gaskets

ROW Incorporated

A Superior Seal for Chemical Applications

TFE-O-SIL® Silicone and Viton™ gaskets for cam lock couplings, encapsulated with FEP, are designed for use with practically all chemicals, even in the toughest corrosive environments. These gaskets combine the best qualities of two materials to form a superior seal: Elastomer as the core for resilience, and FEP on the outside for chemical resistance. Not an envelope gasket, the elastomeric core of every TFE-O-SIL® gasket is fully encased.

  • Maintains reliable sealing across a broad temperature range, suitable for various industrial applications.
  • Exceptional chemical resistance and durability in harsh environments with FEP Encapsulated Gaskets.
Recommendations on application design and material selection are based upon available technical data and are offered as suggestions only. Each user should conduct evaluations to determine the suitability for his particular application. ROW, INC. offers no express or implied warranties concerning the form, fit, or function of a product in any application.

TFE-O-SIL® Features:

Excellent Chemical Resistance - FEP is chemically inert to almost all industrial chemicals and solvents, even at elevated temperatures and pressures

Resiliency - Elastomeric cores provide an assured tight seal

Wide Temperature Range - Continuous service temperatures from
-75°F (-60°C) to +400°F (+205°C) for FEP & silicone,
-15°F (-26°C) to +400°F (+205°C) for FEP & Viton™

Low Coefficient of Friction - Lubricious surface of FEP for easier gasket insertion

Nonstick Surface - Almost all substances release easily so cleanup is easier

Universal Seal - Handles practically any fluid. Eliminates matching the myriad elastomeric formulations with a specific requirement

Sanitary - Eliminates contamination associated with elastomeric gaskets.

White Gaskets - Introducing our latest line of TFE-O-SIL® Silicone core gaskets encapsulated with FEP. With their clean, sanitary appearance, our white gaskets are ideal for pharmaceutical applications. They are available in coupling sizes from 1/2" through 6" for temperature ranges from -75°F (-60°C) to +400°F (+205°C).
