South African based company

Manufacturers of PTFE Products in South Africa, and supplying the Local market and the entire African Continent.

PTFE Extruded Rod

PTFE Extruded Rod is now manufactured here at CIP

PTFE Rod is known as having the lowest co-efficient of friction of any solid material and is extremely effective operating at extremely high and low temperatures.

What is PTFE?

PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) fluorocarbon resins represent one of the most versatile products lines ever to emerge from Du Pont laboratories. From Exotic space-age applications to molded parts and wire and cable insulation to its consumer use as a coating for cookware, PTFE has fulfilled a wide variety of roles in its 40-year history.

  • What is PTFE



Stainless Insert Reinforced Gasket

C.I.P.’s IRT gaskets combines virgin P.T.F.E. with the stability of 304 stainless steel to provide you with a gasket that is:

  • Extremely Corrosion Resistant

Due to its P.T.F.E. covering, the IRT gasket is virtually immune to chemical attack.

  • Non-Asbestos

Ideal for use where asbestos may be prohibited by health or safety considerations.

  • Leak Free

P.T.F.E. is moulded around and through the perforated stainless steel. This restricts cold flow and provides a positive seal that stays put over extreme temperature ranges and high pressures.

  • Reusable

The unique, rugged construction of the IRT gasket allows it to be reused over and over again. Unlike conventional gasket materials, it does not corrode during use and is not destroyed when the flange is taken apart, reducing inventory and sealing costs.

  • Non-Porous

Because it is individually moulded, each IRT gasket provides you with a denser layer of P.T.F.E. gaskets from 1/2 - 12 inches provide a 50% thicker layer of P.T.F.E. when compared to envelope gaskets, sizes from 14 -24 inches provide a 150% thicker layer.

  • Safety

The stainless steel insert prevents blowouts that can occur when non-metallic gaskets are used.

  • Moulded To Size

Ends costly P.T.F.E. scrap. Saves you time and money by eliminating the need to individually cut gaskets.

  • Easy To Seat

IRT gasket provides leak free seals with low bolt torques. Specially machined flange faces are not required.

  • Cuts Maintenance Time

With IRT gasket, repeated retorquing is not required to maintain a seal. Due to cold flow other P.T.F.E. gaskets must be retorqued several times to prevent leakage.

  • Prevents Dangerous Blowouts

IRT gasket will stay in place, even at elevated tempertures and pressures, due to its stainless steel insert.

  • Reduces Costly Inventories

By stocking the IRT gasket for all your corrosive applications, you can eliminate the need to keep a wide variety of gaskets in different materials on hand.
