Garlock has developed an anti-stick agent that facilitates the removal of gaskets from flanged joints. Flange Free is a high-temperature, inorganic coating that the company is applying to its entire line of compressed-sheet gasketing, including extreme-grade gasketing for critical-service applications. Gaskets treated with this coating reduce the time and effort required to remove them after extended service. The coating is fused to the surface of the gasket material and does not contain chemicals that can cause the gaskets to crack or otherwise degrade. To help in proper gasket selection, the product branding has been redesigned for clarity and applied with a water-based ink that will not transfer to the flange.
