EVOLUTION® Isolation Gasket – The Future of Flange Isolation. Available Now!

EVOLUTION® is a patent pending product that is the first of its kind to be a fully encapsulated isolating gasket. The thinner, 1/8” (3mm) design minimizes the difficulties often encountered while attempting to install thicker isolating gaskets. The total encapsulation allows the gasket to be hydro-tested and kept in the pipeline with virtually no loss in isolation properties.

This innovative gasket is coated using a GPT proprietary material designed specifically for the oil and gas industry that is extremely abrasion and impact resistant. The coating is also chemically resistant to attack from H₂S, steam, CO, CO₂, and other chemicals found in oil and gas pipelines.

EVOLUTION® has passed API 6FB fire testing in multiple sizes and pressure classes and has a considerable increase in operating temperature over GRE products. Furthermore, EVOLUTION® does not have the permeation issues or chemical attack that plagues GRE gaskets.

Under harsh conditions, gaskets made from GRE may be vulnerable to chemical attack, blowout, thermal attack, hydrolysis and emissions —all of which can have serious consequences. EVOLUTION® is different. Its revolutionary materials and design provides industry-leading resistance to leakage and flange corrosion, as well as unprecedented levels of fire safety.

Unlike GRE gaskets, which are prone to delamination, EVOLUTION® has no laminations and as a result can better withstand high-pressure environments.

Rated to 500°F (260°C)*, EVOLUTION® can also operate under high temperatures. Tested comprehensively for safety, the product has API 6FB, 3rd Edition Fire Test recognition.

GYLON EPIX

Solving a Copper Mine’s Flange Challenges

Finally, the Perfect Solution for Imperfect Flanges.

The Next Generation in PTFE Gasketing

The all-new patented GYLON EPIXTM looks like no other gasket because it’s not like any other gasket. Its patented hexagonal surface profile combines best-in-class torque retention with exceptional conformability, allowing you to use a single thickness for nearly any application—even worn or pitted flanges.

Faced with frequent leaks in its many miles of pipe, a copper mining customer was expending considerable time and manpower chasing leaks and retightening their flouroelastomer (FKM) rubber gaskets. Until they discovered the new GYLON EPIX gasketing.

From copper mining to chemical processing, GYLON EPIX gasketing delivers exceptional conformability and torque retention.
