Kalrez Elastomer Compatibility Chart

Compatibility Chart for the Elastomer Kalrez
* Copyright for photograph
Kalrez perfluoroelastomer o-rings and seals last longer and seal more effectively than o-rings and seals made from other elastomers. This is due to the exceptional chemical resistance and thermal stability of Kalrez.

Chemical Resistance: Kalrez o-rings and seals can withstand attack by more than 1,800 chemicals. These chemicals include many acids and amines that destroy other elastomers. Other elastomers will swell excessively and then fail.

Thermal Stability: Even after long-term exposure to temperatures up to 327C, Kalrez keeps its elasticity and recovers better than other elastomers that are designed to withstand high temperatures.
