Introducing a Technologically Advanced New Gasket

TUF-FLEX, the revolutionary new gasket from Rubber Fab Technologies Group, is the world's only unitized gasket, setting new standards for purity, performance and flexibility. Designed to meet critical requirements in pharmaceutical, biotechnology, ultra-pure water, WFI (waier-for-iujection) and difficult food and beverage processing, TUF-FLEX outperforms other gaskets while eliminating costly process interruptions.

Achieve higher performance under SIP/CIP Conditions
  • Uniting the flexibility of an elastomer with the chemical resistance of PTFE
  • Seats perfectly

  • Maintains seal @ 30 in./lbs.
  • IDF (International Dairy Fitting) gaskets available
  • Temperature Range: -20ºF to 400ºF
TUF-FLEX prevents process interruptions
  • Perfect cleanability
  • No retorquing necessary
  • Up to 100 SIP cycles guaranteed
Performance Based on a Revolutionary Composition
A TUF-FLEX gasket's contact surface is a layer of PTFE grafted to an EPDM rubber inner core. This totally bonded construction provides an exceptionally pure and incredibly flexible gasket.

Performance With Exceptional Purity
Because its elastomer core is protected by a unitized layer of PTFE, TUF-FLEX gaskets will not release elastomer extractables or particulates totally eliminating spalling. The result is an exceptionally maintained sanitary tubing I.D. with no I.D. invasive ness or system contamination.

Performance Superior to Elastomers An elastomer gasket under SIP temperatures or chemical contact can revert. The soft, gummy consistency will invade into die sanitary I.D., shear and cause product contamination. At the same lime, the reverting elastomer will stick to the ferrule's face increasing clean-up costs and down time. Because all elastomers are metamorphic, over lime, They continually undergo deterioration resulting in the release of extractables and TOCs. By grafting the elastomer with a layer of PTFE, TUF-FLEX will behave like an elastomer but will prevent the product con tamination, service interruptions and clean-up costs associated with elastomer gaskets.
