Tealon 1580 Full Face Gasket
Full Face gaskets are a flat sealing element, consisting of an inner and outer diameter, and a specified number of bolt holes, the center of which are evenly spaced around a bolt circle. Full face gaskets are designed to fill the entire space between flat-faced flanges, with bolt holes that match the size and arrangement of the bolt holes in the intended flanges. ASME B16.21 and ASME B16.47 govern the dimensions of full face gaskets for standard and large diameter pipe flanges. Teadit Tealon TF 1580 is a restructured PTFE material filled with barium sulfate and is suitable for strong caustic fluids. It meets FDA conformance for service within food and pharmaceutical applications. 1580 can be used in a wide range of applications due to its vast resistance to most chemical products. It is compatible with strong acids along with strong caustics, making it the most diverse material within the Tealon family. With the off-white color of 1580, this material is also suitable for processes where contamination is not tolerated.
