Sealing Products Manufacturer/Distributor Markets Form-in-Place, Chemically Resistant PTFE Joint Sealant

A form-in-place sealant, designed expressly for sealing expansion joints, has been added to AGIS, LLC’s line of sealing products for harsh service environments. The gasket, manufactured of 100% virgin, expanded PTFE, is a soft, compressible gasket material that conforms to almost any sealing surface-- even rough, scratched, and damaged surfaces.

Ambler, PA, June 19, 2012 --( A compressible form-in-place PTFE joint sealant, which conforms to almost any sealing surface, is available from AGIS, LLC, a suburban Philadelphia manufacturer/distributors of sealing products.

The product, manufactured of 100% pure expanded PTFE, is described as a soft compressible gasket material that conforms to any surface, including rough, pitted, scratched and damaged surfaces. Among the possible applications are any accessible bolted joint that feature a flat or serrated sealing surface, such as round, oval, rectangular, complex and irregular flanges; raised face and flat face flanges; metal, plastic and glass-filled flanges; pump and compressor housing flanges; boiler and pressure vessel manholes and handholes, heat exchangers, miscellaneous lids, access plates and ducts, among other sealing applications.

Upon compression the sealant forms a thin, hard ribbon that fills in surface irregularities and creates an extremely tight seal. According to AGIS, the product is “capable of withstanding a wider range of pressures, temperatures and chemical environments than any other soft gasket.”

AGIS’s PTFE expanded joint sealant performs under variable service conditions: temperatures from -450° to 600°F and pressures from F.V. to 3000 psi.

Other features include: • FDA compliant • Easy installation & removal • Chemical resistant • Same chemical inertness of pure virgin PTFE; no fillers or binders • Adhesive strip and peel-off backing for easy installation on both horizontal and vertical surfaces • Unlimited shelf life: no age deterioration • Resists creep and cold flow

Available on spools in sizes ranging from 1/8" to 1" width and 15' to 150' lengths. Custom sizes and shapes are available upon request.

AGIS is both a manufacturer and a distributor of mechanical packing, gaskets, tapes, ropes, cloth and other high temperature specialty products for marine and industrial applications.
