PTFE Seals – We Are Experts in Non-Stick Sealing Solutions
M Barnwell Services are the UK’s leading stockist, distributor, and manufacturer of PTFE Seals. With over 50 years of experience and industry-leading technical support, our customers can be confident that they will receive the correct product for their application.
PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) sealing products are recommended for use in many industrial applications. These include:
- Food Processing (FDA Seals), also compliant with European Regulations EC1935/2004 & EC2023/2006)
- Hydraulic and Pneumatic Systems
- Engineering and Manufacturing Process
- Chemical Processing
In comparison to standard sealing solutions, PTFE seals can present further distinctive features. The most important of these features is low friction at high pressures, however, when designing long-lasting and dependable sealing systems other important factors to take under consideration are high abrasion resistance, extreme chemical compatibility, and low stick-slip.
Popular PTFE seal products include:
- PTFE O Rings
- PTFE Cord
- PTFE Shaft Seals / Garlock PS Seal® Seals
- PTFE Hydraulic and Pneumatic Seals
- PTFE Sheet and Tubing
- PTFE Back-Up Rings
- PTFE Washers
- PTFE Gaskets
- PTFE Gland Packing / Valve Stem Packing / Compression Packing
- PTFE Joint Sealant Tape
- Garlock EPIX™ Seal
PTFE’s sealing efficiency is usually poorer than that of a standard elastomer solution. For an efficient system operation, it’s crucial to carefully consider the general specification.
Benefits of PTFE Seals:
- Simple installation
- Low stick-slip
- High media compatibility
- Low friction at high pressures and speeds
- High abrasion resistance
