Durlon® 9600 is an expanded PTFE gasket material designed for use in process piping and equipment in chemical, pulp and paper, food and beverage and other general industrial applications where resistance to highly aggressive chemicals is required.
Durlon® 9600 is suitable for use in steel flanges and flanges with irregular surfaces. Durlon® 9600 (including branding) conforms to FDA requirements.
Durlon® 9600 is made with only pure PTFE resins. It is suitable for use in steel flanges and as well as flanges where a highly compressible gasket is required. Durlon® 9600 is also suitable for sealing flanges with irregular surfaces. It will not exhibit the cold flow problems associated with virgin PTFE or the hardness problems of some other filled PTFE products. It has excellent sealability, cuts easily and separates cleanly from flanges after use.
