Elastomer Seal Selection

Polymer chemistry is the backbone of our business. By carefully matching the customer's needs with our polymer technology, the optimum sealing solution for both performance and economy can be chosen.

Elastomer Seal Polymer SelectionSelecting An Elastomer Seal By first understanding the basic chemical alternatives and properties, the selection process is simplified.

Types of Polymers There are three types of polymers - Thermoplastics, Thermosets and Elastomers.

Nitrile(Buna-n) O-rings Nitrile(buna n) is a copolymer of butadiene and acrylonitrile, a compound that is commonly used in o-rings.

FEP/PFA Encapsulated O-rings FEP and PFA are actually not elastomers, they are a plastic. Our FEP/PFA encapsulated o-rings consist of a seamless FEP/PFA jacket over an polymer core made from Viton® or silicone.

Neoprene O-rings The name neoprene refers to a whole a group of synthetic rubbers that are produced by the polymerization of chloroprene.
