Garlock is a global manufacturer of high-performance sealing solutions with an emphasis on safety, longevity, and productivity. We work closely with our end-user customers, distribution partners, OEMs (original equipment manufacturers), industry associations, and government entities to understand their unique sealing challenges and respond with innovative solutions that keep people safe and the environment protected.
With a history dating back over 130 years, Garlock today maintains a global presence of manufacturing and distribution facilities that allow us to meet our customers’ needs with unprecedented responsiveness and ingenuity.
Garlock Compression Packing will contribute to maintain a safe process, meet stringent fugitive emission limits and save resources, with proven reliability.
Our packing products will generate the greatest return on initial investment in terms of leakage control, service life, dependability, and cost-effectiveness. We also provide expertise with highly knowledgeable application engineering support.
Garlock compression packing is rigorously tested to ensure effective sealing in valves, pumps, agitators, and other rotary equipment. The development of the compression packing line reflects the evolution and innovation in the materials used in its production. Garlock develops and manufactures it's own technical yarn braided into packing, along with high performance proprietary coatings, that are essential in this age of sealing performance requirements.
Garlock's product line includes industry recognized Low Emission valve stem packing, leading-edge and award winning pump packing sets like dry-running DSA, and water saving HYDRA-JUST®. We pioneered the development of emission control valve stem packing in the early 1980s. Our innovation efforts have yielded a portfolio of low emission packing products to suit customer needs and meet EPA’s latest requirements.
Garlock Expansion Joints offer superior performance, reliability, and service life, resulting in improved plant safety and increased mechanical integrity of equipment. As specifically engineered products that are inserted in a rigid piping system, Garlock Rubber Expansion Joints will:
All of our expansion joints carry safety ratings that exceed product specifications in areas such as pressure and movement. Non-metallic expansion joints and flexible couplings are ideally suited for a wide variety of industries.
Developed over years as an industry leader, the Garlock gasket sheet material portfolio includes a wide array of options to ensure a sealing solution for even the most demanding applications. Whether it’s less than ideal flanges, pressure and temperature extremes, or aggressive media, Garlock has an answer for your greatest challenges.
GYLON®, known industry wide as the material of choice for severe chemical services, is offered as a traditional flat sheet as well as with the new EPIX® profiled surface option, which is ideal for misaligned, worn, or pitted flanges.
Garlock’s Compressed Fiber Gasket Sheet Material uses a time-tested proprietary manufacturing process, and covers everything from general service to extreme applications.
Garlock’s Premium Rubber family of products are manufactured using high-quality homogeneous rubber compounds, unlike commercial or utility rubber products, which are made with low-quality blends, prone to media incompatibility and gasket failure.
Metal gaskets are designed to withstand extreme temperatures, pressures and chemical exposure. Available in standard and custom configurations, these rugged metal gaskets are made of a wide range of materials to accommodate all types of process applications.

Garlock Non-Metallic Gaskets utilize the wide breadth of our award-winning gasket sheet material portfolio and are engineered to seal a wide array of service conditions including aggressive chemicals and extreme temperatures, making Garlock gaskets the gold standard for over 130 years.
Our Standard Pipe Flange Gaskets are engineered to meet the demands of aggressive medias and extreme temperatures. Whether your need is fire safe, cryogenic, food contact approved, or worn flanges that won't hold a seal, there is a Garlock gasket for your application.
Garlock's STRESS SAVER® Pipe Flange Gaskets are ideal for lightweight piping and non-metallic flange applications where low bolt load and chemical resistance are issues.
Look to our In-Line Strainer Gaskets for an effective and inexpensive way to protect valuable downstream equipment such as metering devices from dangerous debris in the pipeline.
Lubrikup® Prolene Boiler Manhole and Handhole Gaskets are constructed of proprietary rubber compounds to ensure optimal performance and a long-lasting seal.
In 1928, Garlock Palmyra developed its CHEVRON® packing, the first automatic hydraulic packing using standard duck and rubber tubing, which it continues to manufacture. Garlock CHEVRON® packing is the original automatic hydraulic and pneumatic design for sealing rods, pistons, and plungers. This hydraulic packing was subsequently expanded from its original use in steam engines to applications in the off-road equipment, power generation, and automotive industries. Since then the global growth of CHEVRON® hydraulic packing has continued in the oil and gas and nuclear industries.
The distinctive and exclusive hinge-like action of each CHEVRON® ring permits immediate reaction even to minor pressure changes. Each individual lip of a CHEVRON® packing set independently reacts to pressure, and automatically effects a seal. The multiple lip configuration automatically distributes pressure and an effective seal along the shaft. The proprietary design of Garlock CHEVRON® packing also permits an automatic reaction to pressure shock and overloads. Once Garlock CHEVRON® packing has been selected and installed, it will seal effectively and automatically. CHEVRON® is now available in Deep V-ring design.
