Novatex Range

NOVATEX Gasket Sheet (PTFE)

The Novatex family of gasket sheets are produced by a proprietary expansion process which generates a highly fibrillated microstructure. This unique structure maximises performance predictability and stability while minimizing creep and cold flow.

Novatex Gasket Sheet has an unlimited shelf life and will not become brittle, age or otherwise deteriorate in the application. Novatex is unaffected by UV, Ozone and Corona. It can be easily hand or die cut when necessary Novatex can be easily removed from flanges due to the non-sticking nature of PTFE.


  • 100% pure PTFE Non-contaminating, non-toxic 
  • Meets FDA requirement (FDA21 CFR177.1550) 
  • Withstands a range of temperatures from -196°C to +260°C 
  • Easy to cut and install Low compressive load to seal 
  • Seals rough or damaged flanges 
  • Good sealability 
  • Highly compressible 
  • Resistant to creep and cold flow 
  • Unaffected by most chemicals pH range 0-14 
  • Uniform and highly fibrillated microstructure in multi-direction

NOVATEX Joint Sealant

Novatex Joint Sealant looks and feels different from other joint sealant products. It is smooth and flexible with an exceptionally smooth texture and density. Under the surface is a microscopic structure that makes this remarkable material one of the strongest, most versatile sealants available today.

Novatex Joint Sealant has high tensile strength, flexibility and tough properties. It is an ideal economic sealing gasket with a superior performance even in highly corrosive applications. Its resistance to chemical and thermal attack is excellent.


  • 100% expanded PTFE 
  • Temperature range from -196°C to +260°C 
  • Unaffected by common chemicals PH range 0-14 
  • Non-contaminating, non-toxic FDA suitable (FDA21 CRR177.1550) 
  • Environmentally friendly 
  • Will not age or harden in service 
  • Extremely strong; pressure range from full vacuum to 3 000 psi

NOVATEX Gasket Tape

Novatex Gasket Tape looks and feels different from other gasket tape products. It is very versatile, soft and flexible with an exceptionally uniform density. Under the surface is a microscopic structure that makes this remarkable material one of the strongest, most versatile sealants available today. Lasts longer, saves time and cost.


  • Excellent for use on glass lined, plastic and FRP plastic flanges 
  • Can be used on odd shaped flanges 
  • Excellent for repairing worn spiral wound and metal gaskets 
  • Eliminates the need for etched PTFE 
  • Wider widths are useful for volume cutting of gaskets 
  • Easy to use, will not unravel or split and is simple to install

NOVATEX Valve Stem Packing

Novatex Valve Stem Packing is made from 100% expanded PTFE. This highly pliable material will conform to worn stems and packing glands to help eliminate the need for costly downtime and repair. The unique properties of PTFE assure valve operation even after long periods of inactivity. Novatex Valve Stem Packing will not harden or dry out in service and will normally out-live the life of the valve.


  • 100% expanded virgin PTFE 
  • Withstands a wide range of temperatures from -196°C to +260°C 
  • Unaffected by common chemicals, pH range 0-14 
  • Non-contaminating, non-toxic 
  • FDA suitable 
  • Will not age, harden, shrink or dry out in service 
  • Withstands the pressure limits for which the valve was designed 
  • Adds service life to old and worn valves 
  • Valves still operate after long periods of non-use 
  • Helps meet tough FDA requirements for fugitive emissions
