Filled PTFE (Teflon®) gaskets are made from PTFE which integrates additives and fillers in order to

improve the performance of the gasket. This improves the gaskets ability to wear and enhances its

unique combination of chemical, physical and electrical properties. Filled Teflon® is the most common

type of PTFE gasket for industrial use as it exhibits improved mechanical strength compared to Virgin

PTFE. Glass, carbon and fiber particles are typical fillers that are used to enhance the mechanical

strength of the gasket depending on the application.
