A Solid PTFE Type I Gasket is guaranteed to fail in SIP conditions. They will creep, cold flow and leak at delta T.The Envelope Gasket construction provides inconsistent results between the two materials. It will also creep, cold flow and leak over time.The PTFE grafted elastomer in a Tuf-Flex sanitary gasket will maintain I.D. without re-torquing or leaking.
