Material performance and seal design are both critical to effective sealing. Equipment manufacturers and end users expect a sealing system to operate leak free and to maintain long service life. Reliability is crucial to effective low maintenance cost operations. Isolast perfluoroelastomers from Busak+Shamban meet these demands in extremely hostile environments, at temperatures in excess of 572F. They offer good chemical and thermal resistance without sacrificing performance. Typically, the material is used in process applications such as chemical, semiconductor, pharmaceutical and hydrocarbon industries and is offered in a full range of products, including O-rings, gaskets and custom parts.
