EAP International Ltd are proud to be an authorised fabricator and distributor of Garlock Sealing Technology gasket materials.

GYLON® is a time-tested proven product that is known throughout industry as the material of choice for severe chemical services.  In addition, GYLON® gasket size availability is virtually limitless, as the product can be thermally bonded using a patented process. Garlock’s compressed fibre gasketing materials are manufactured using a proven technique referred to as the High-Pressure Sheet (HPS) process. One thing that makes the Garlock product different from other HPS products is the they made using a proprietary non-VOC solvent which is environmentally friendly.
