Tip: Low Temperature Seals

Designing low temperature seals requires careful consideration of the elastomer to be used. Silicones are often a good choice for low temperature seals. If you are using a fluid that attacks silicone, one of the fluorosilicones might work even better. They are resistant to many fluids. However, there are other "tricks" our engineers can help you with. For example, sometimes increasing the squeeze will help performance at a low temperature.
