STRESS SAVER® XP, a product of Garlock Sealing Technologies, performs well in steam service and is the best solution when chemical resistance and low bolt loads are problematic.  It outperforms both PTFE envelope gaskets and standard fluoroelastomers.


  • Tighter seal – its raised, molded-in sealing rings seal with 75% less surface area for exceptional performance in non-metallic flanges; has lower seating stress
  • Chemical resistance – due to it being a high-performance fluoroelastomer
  • Excellent heat resistance
  • Envelope fold-over is eliminated during installation
  • Won’t fail due to filler attack
