Fluid Seals supplies Kalrez chemical resistant elastomers

Supplier News

Kalrez chemical resistant elastomers available from Fluid Seals offer high chemical resistant properties to more than 1800 industrial chemicals.

Constructed from perfluoroelastomer parts, these elastomers have virtually universal chemical resistance, also withstanding attack from many solvents and plasmas.

O rings and sealing components produced from other rubbers are susceptible to chemically induced swelling, causing them to expand out of retaining grooves, resulting in seal failures.

Kalrez elastomers resist extreme volume swell when exposed to a wide range of chemicals and solvents, including:

  • concentrated nitric acid
  • sodium hydroxide
  • ethylene diamine; and
  • steam.
This provides processors with a larger operating window for additional chemical usage and higher temperature excursions.
