W. L. Gore & Associates is a technology-driven company focused on discovery and product innovation. Founded in 1958 and headquartered in Newark, Del., Gore posts annual sales of more than $3 billion and employs more than 10,000 associates with manufacturing facilities in the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, Japan and China, and sales offices around the world. For more than 40 years, our Sealant Technologies group has cultivated a solid knowledge of factors that influence the sealing of piping systems, vessels, pumps and valves. Our singular focus has resulted in the development of innovative and top-performing gaskets, seals and other fluid-handling products. Because of its unique combination of properties, our expanded PTFE virtually eliminates the drawbacks of conventional PTFE sealing and fluid handling products. Our gasket configurations provide solutions for flanges that are fragile, warped or misaligned. We also enable users to standardize one gasket material across a wide range of process piping systems. Our packings are the highest-performing, most universal products on the market today. Our comprehensive technical services program is designed to help customers determine the best solutions for their toughest sealing applications. Among other things, we provide on-site technical support, customer references and case studies.
