PTFE based gasket materials are able to withstand significantly more aggressive chemical environments than standard non-asbestos gasket materials. However, it should also be noted that the temperature, pressure and mechanical performance of a PTFE gasket is inferior to standard non-asbestos gasket materials. PTFE is principally used as a gasket material because of its capability to remain unaffected by the majority of chemicals used in industry. It is also classified, in most cases, as a food grade material, making it attractive to both medical and food production industries.
