Leader Clipperlon 2120

Description

Modified PTFE gasket material containing biaxial orientated chains to obtain a tight seal for demanding applications. Clipperlon 2120 is a very dense material with low compressibility, high recovery and low creep properties. Off-white in color and produced with Modified PTFE and barium sulfate filler. Clipperlon 2120 particularly suitable for use with hydrofluoric acid and chlorine applications and a wide variety of different media across the whole pH-range. Due to the high density this material is highly recommended for applications with monomers to avoid the ‘popcorning’ effect. This effect will be result when the monomer enters the micro-voids of the PTFE

Product Data Sheet

Application

Particularly suitable for use with hydrofluoric acid and a wide variety of different media across the whole pH-range. Applications can be found in chemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage and general industry. Due to the high density this material is highly recommended for applications with monomers to avoid the ‘popcorning’ effect. This effect will be result when the monomer enters the micro-voids of the PTFE.

Chemical Compatiblity

Patricularly suitable for use with hydrofluoric acid, but not pure hydrogen fluoride. Best for use with string alkalis, solvents, fuels, water, steam and chlorine. Other applications include solvents, fuels, water, oil, chlorine and caustics. A chemical resistance listis available upon request.

Delivery Options

Flange gaskets and sheets are available in thickness of 1/32",1/16", 1/8", 0,5mm, 1mm, 1,5mm, 2mm and 3mm. Other thicknesses available on request..
