Style 24B joint sealant is produced by expanding 100%
virgin PTFE into a highly fibrillated structure which exhibits
characteristics significantly different than conventional
PTFE. The expanded PTFE is much more flexible than
regular PTFE and thus conforms easily to irregular and
rough surfaces. In addition, the expanded material is
easier to compress and exhibits excellent resistance to
creep and cold flow. This style of joint sealant is supplied
as a continuous tape with a self-adhesive backing strip
to facilitate easy installation.
Application / Service
Style 24B joint sealant is soft and marshmallow-like,
allowing it to readily conform to and seal flanges with irregular
and damaged surfaces. Because it is composed
of 100% PTFE, it can handle virtually all chemicals in
the 0-14 pH range and will not contaminate flow media.
It has no smell or taste. It is neither contaminating nor
toxic and it fulfills the FDA 21 CFR 177.1550 Perfluorocarbon
The versatility of this style is finding new applications
everyday in the process industries and the OEM market.
