Expanded PTFE Gasket Tape

Gasket tape is flat, thin, form-in-place sealing material used to provide an effective seal against liquids or gases. Often used on flanges with irregular surfaces, gasket tape conforms well to surface irregularities and is relatively easy to apply and install.

Teadit Style 24BB Expanded PTFE Gasket Tape

Canada Rubber Group (CRG) supplies Teadit style24BB expanded PTFE gasket tape for joint sealing applications. Style 24BB gasket tape is produced by expanding 100 percent virgin PTFE into a highly fibrillated structure which is softer and more flexible than regular PTFE, and thus conforms easily to irregular and rough surfaces. In addition, the expanded material is easier to compress and exhibits excellent resistance to creep and cold flow.

The excellent malleability of style 24BB tape allows it to readily compensate for small damage and uneven areas on flange faces. The tape possesses exceptional thermal and chemical stability that makes it an excellent and risk-free choice for many applications. While 24BB tape can be used as a standalone product, the tape can also be used as a laminate or wrap to improve the sealing performance of a gasket (i.e., metallic or semi-metallic) currently installed on a joint.

CRG is able to supply Teadit 24BB expanded PTFE gasket tape in roll form as a continuous tape with a self-adhesive backing strip to facilitate easy installation. Alternatively, CRG can use 24BB tape to fabricate gaskets that meet your specific application requirements. Users will find style 24BB tape easy to handle, similar to sheet material in look and feel.

Style 24BB Expanded PTFE Gasket Tape: Applications

Style 24BB tape is particularly suited for sealing glass lined and plastic flanges. Because it is made from 100 percent virgin PTFE, the tape can be used to seal all aggressive chemicals over the entire 0 to 14 pH range, except for molten alkali metals and elemental fluorine. It will not contaminate or discolor flow media and it is suitable for FDA service. Style 24BB tape has no smell or taste. It is neither contaminating nor toxic and it fulfills the FDA 21 CFR 177.1550 Perfluorocarbon Regulations.
