FEP Encapsulated Kamlock™ Gaskets
FEP Encapsulated Kamlock™ Gasket Seals

What are Encapsulated Kamlock™ Gaskets?

Vulcan Seals' line of encapsulated gaskets for the universal sealing of cam and groove hose couplings.

The rectangular cross-section inner core of silicone or Viton® is protected by an encapsulation of FEP, providing extreme chemical and high temperature resistance.

 

Take Advantage

Benefit from Vulcan Seals' significant production advantages:

  • High volume supply capability
  • Stock supply, fast lead times
  • Enhanced gasket quality
  • Assured sealing performance

 

Superior Gasket Quality

Even distribution of sealing force to maximise gasket reliability and performance via:

  • Superior gasket flatness (diagram below)
  • Minimal encapsulation-to-core gap
  • Smooth sealing surface free from warps and kinks

  • FEP encapsulation
  • Silicone or Viton® inner core
  • Extreme chemical resistance
  • Wide temperature range
  • Non-contaminating
  • Large range of sizes

Benefits

  • No need to specify different elastomer materials for different applications
  • Leak-free performance: low compression set and elastomer core energiser avoids cold flow leakage
  • Easy installation and maintenance due to the non-stick surface with low coefficient of friction
  • Sanitary, sterilisable and FDA / EC specification compliant encapsulation
  • Superior seal for bulk liquid transfer couplings in manufacturing, distribution or storage
  • Elimination of coupling leakage from chemical attack or creep issues, unlike traditional solid PTFE gaskets
