The INERTEX family of gasketing and sealing products are produced by proprietary processes protected by both u.s. and world. All INERTEX products share the following typical properties:

• 100% expanded virgin PTFE • Pressure range, full vacuum to 3,000psi • Low coefficient of friction (.02 like wet ice)
• Temperature range, -450°F to +600°F • Extremely soft, excellent conformability • FDA suitable (FDA 21 CRF 177.1550)
• pH range from 0 to 14 • Little creep or cold flow • No aging or hardening in service

INERTEX® INERMET Insertable Gaskets
are made with a corrugated metal insert. The typical sheet thickness is 1/16" (1mm also available,) and the typical metal used is 24 gauge 316L stainless steel. Through the enhanced resilience of the gasket by incorporating the corrugated metal insert, the design (see below) is aimed at improving sealing performance for applications involving thermal cycling effects and at low compressive loads. It also provides high blow-out resistance.

Product Benefits:
Enhanced sealing performances at lower compressive stresses
Enhanced sealing performance and mechanical stability for applications involving thermal cycling
Improved blow-out resistance
Improved rigidity for difficult installation conditions
Standard ANSI/ASME sizes available. Custom sizes and styles also available for applications such as heat exchangers
