Sigma® 511 is a high performance, biaxially orientated PTFE based material containing a silica filler. The material provides standard compressibility, is WRAS approved for potable water applications and complies with EC regulation on materials intended to come into contact with food stuffs. Sigma® 511 is particularly suited for sealing applications involving strong acids, such as sulphuric in all concentrations, and to general chemicals, but is not suitable for use with hydrofluoric, molten alkali metals, fluorine gas or hydrogen fluoride.
At PAR Group, we have the machining capabilities to covert Sigma® 511 into any standard table size flange gasket, bespoke gasket or picture frame gasket. If you require further information on how to measure your gasket, please view our online guide on 'How to Measure a Gasket'.
