KWO® MultiTex® Tape

ePTFE gasket tape

KWO MultiTex® Tape is a high-quality gasket material produced from multidirectionally expanded PTFE.

The flexible material adapts well to sealing surfaces, compensates irregularities and seals at very low stresses.

Form in place PTFE gasket tape, especially used on large and irregularly shaped steel flanges or glass lined steel flanges.

 

 

 

  • adapts well to sealing surfaces
  • compensates irregularities
  • superior resistance to creep and cold flow
  • very high sealability especially at very low stresses
  • harmless in contact with food
  • high chemical resistance
  • UV resistant, non-ageing
  • nontoxic, biologically inert
  • non-flammable

 

  • heat exchangers, apparatus constructions
  • reactors, glass lined flanges
  • GRP-pipelines and -tanks
  • pharmaceutical- and food processing equipment
  • BAM - suitable for use with oxygen
  • TA Luft regulation and blow out safety acc. to VDI 2200
  • specific values according to DIN EN 13555
  • FDA 21 CFR 177.1550 compliant
  • EC1935/2004 - suitable for food applications
