Top-Chem-2000 is a heavy-duty modified PTFE material manufactured with the addition of silicon carbide to improve the mechanical properties of the PTFE base material. Top-Chem-2000 has greatly increased compressive strength and resistance to creep and maintains the excellent chemical resistance. The use of PTFE allows use in food, pharmaceutical and chemically aggressive applications.
Top-Chem-2000 is fire-safe according to API 6FA and ISO 10497 and has TA-Luft (Clean Air) approval.
Top-Chem-2003 is a modified PTFE designed for use in low gasket load applications. Glass microspheres aid the compressibility and general mechanical strength without detrimentally affecting the material’s chemical resistance, and has been developed to be used with glass-lined flanges and other circumstances where compressive load is limited.
Top-Chem-2003 can be used for food, pharmaceutical, and chemically aggresive applications.
Top-Chem-2003 has TA-Luft (Clean Air) approval.
Top-Chem-2005 is a modified PTFE optimised for use in acidic applications. The addition of glass improves the mechanical properties of PTFE and increases the operational range of PTFE based materials. Top-Chem-2005 is designed for use in acidic environments and cannot be used with strong alkalis.
Top-Chem-2005 has TA-Luft (Clean Air) approval.
Top-Chem-2006 is a modified PTFE optimised for use in alkaline applications. The addition of barium sulphate improves the mechanical properties of PTFE and increases the operational range of PTFE based materials. Top-Chem-2006 is designed for use in alkaline environments and cannot be used with strong acids.
Top-Chem-2006 has TA-Luft (Clean Air) approval.
Soft-Chem is a pure, expanded PTFE material designed for use in low bolt load applications. The multidirectional structure of the PTFE matrix improves the compressive strength and improves resistance to creep. Soft-Chem is based on pure PTFE and is suitable for use in food and pharmaceutical duties and can be used in glass-lined, plastic flanges and steel flanges.
