We at PGE ( Pilot Gaskets and Engineers ) are pioneers for providing sealing solutions to our customers when it comes to AsbestosFree alternatives.

Asbestos is a mineral wool used for its insulation purposes. But, through time, we have known that this very material is extremely carcinogenic and had been responsible for deaths of numerous workers throughout history.

The microscopic asbestos fibres tend to clog onto the bronchioles inside our lungs and cause cancer, also known as Asbestosis.

PGE India has successfully been able to offer 100% AsbestosFREE Solutions to its customers ensuring better working environment for the workers as well as nearby dwellers.

Pilot Style 2120

PILOT STYLE 2120 is a diagonally braided from a newly developed ePTFE yarn, filled with highly refined mineral filler particles, and treated with FDA-conform mineral oil. STYLE 2120 is very malleable and supple packing with low coefficient of friction, hardly any shaft wear. The filler particles inside the yarn enhance the heat transfer properties as well as lubricant absorption and retention over a longer period. Excellent chemical resistance. Easy to install, needs little gland adjustments.

Certification: FDA, ISO 15848.

Properties: Temperature: 280°C, Pressure: 30 bar, pH: 0-14


The chemical inertness of ePTFE makes this packing suitable for use with nearly all fluids, including the most corrosive acids and alkalis, while the FDA conformity allows for use with foodstuffs, pharmaceutical products and potable water.

Pilot Style 2730I

PILOT STYLE 2730I is made up of highl purity expanded graphite material and knitted. It contains special high temperature impregnation and a corrosion inhibitor. These constituents results in high strength and stability especially in high temperature and pressure applications like in valves etc.

Properties: Temperature: -250 to 650°C, Pressure: 500 bar, pH: 0-14

Certifications: TA-LUFT, ISO 15848, API 622, API 589 (Fire Safe)
