This polymer which is commonly reffered to as Nitrile or Buna-N is a co-polymer of Butadiene and Acryonitrile . They are differentiated based on the percentage of bound Acryonitrile (ACN) content in the polymer.
The low ACN polymers have good low temperature flexibility, compression set resistance and good elastic properties, but moderate resistance to oils and fuels. As the ACN content increases, resistance to mineral oils, fuels and greases increases, but properties such as low temperature flexibility, compression set resistance and elasticity deteriorate. Medium ACN polymers exhibit good balance of all the above properties. Normal service temperatures of these polymers range from -25 Degrees Celsius to 120 Degrees Celsius.
This polymer is based on 2-chloro – 1,3 butadiene and is commonly referred to as Neoprene. The chief characteristics of the polymer an flame retardancy, excellent ageing properties in ozone and weather environments along with resistance to abrasion and flex fatigue.
Polymers Range: Polychloroprene rubber (CR). This polymer is based on 2-chloro – 1,3 butadiene and is commonly referred to as Neoprene. The chief characteristics of the polymer an flame retardancy, excellent ageing properties in ozone and weather environments along with resistance to abrasion and flex fatigue. Polychloroprene exhibits good resistance to mineral oils with high aniline point, greases, refrigerants and water.
This polymer is a terpolymer of ethylene, propylene and some Diene as the termonomer. Moulded parts and seals from EPDM have good resistance to :
-Ozone, ageing and weathering
-Water and steam
-Dilute acid, alkalies, ketones, alcohols and polar organic media
-Phosphate ester based hydraulic fluids.
These are high molecular weight poly organo siloxanes. VMQ has both Vinyl and Methyl substituent groups on the polymer chain, while PVMQ has an additional Phenyl substituent group on the polymer chain.
These polymers have excellent cold flexibility as well as high thermal resistance. They have excellent di-electric properties and very good resistance to attack by oxygen, ozone and sunlight. They however have moderate resistance to mineral oils . The most admirable property of this polymer is it’s very wide service temperature range i.e -65 Degrees Celsius to 250 Degrees Celsius.
These versatile range of polymers are used for a vast range of sealing applications due to its resistance to a broad spectrum of chemical and oil media and a wide range of temperatures. The co-polymer types of FKM are co-polymers of Hexa fluoropropylene (HFP) and Vinylidine difluoride (VF2) (Fluorine content = 65-66%) While the terpolymers have Tetra fluoroethylene (TFE) as the Termonomer (Fluorine content = 67-71%). Some terpolymers have an additional cure site monomer which are used for very special applications.
Perfluoroelastomer (FFKM), this unique material which endures the harshest known environments can now be supplied by us in the form of moulded O-Rings as per Customer specification.
FFKM has unbeatable resistance to concentrated acids, alkalis, steam, organic alcohols, ketones & esters. It has an attractive wide service temperature range from -25 ℃ to 300℃.
FFKM is also immune to sudden changes in service environments and lasts much longer than conventional elastomers including FPM
The elimination of double bonds from the polymer chain of NBR, either partially or completely by hydrogenation gives Hydrogenated Nitrile rubber.
These polymers have much improved heat resistance than NBR (heat resistance depends on the degree of hydrogenation).
HNBR has outstanding resistance to heat, ozone, weathering, mineral oils, crude oils with amines, fuels, greases, aliphatic hydrocarbons and industrial chemicals HNBR has very good mechanical properties and excellent wear resistance. Normal service temperatures of these polymers are -30 d.c to 150 d.c.
This is a co polymer of Butadiene and Styrene. This general purpose polymer has good resistance to dilute organic and in organic acids water,alcohols and brake fluids.
Normal service temperatures of this polymer is -40 d.c to 110 d.c.
This thermoplastic material is also referred to Poly acetal. This material due to it’s good stiffness, hardness and strength has the ability to take very high loads. In certain applications it can replace metal parts like brass and aluminium. It also exhibits better dimensional stability than other thermoplastics in moist condition due to it’s very low water absorption.
Normal service temperatures of this material is -40 d.c to 140 d.c.
This family of thermoplastics is widely used for anti-extrusion purposes and other sealing applications. Nylon is resistant to various petroleum and phosphate ester based hydraulic fluids.
