Trelleborg Sealing Solutions launches Isolast® J9876, a new perfluoroelastomer that gives the most comprehensive media resistance at elevated temperatures of any perfluoroelastomer on the market. Seals in this material give extended life in aggressive high-temperature environments and an optimized cost to performance ratio, meaning the compound can be specified over a wide range of applications. Equipment suppliers and process managers can benefit from the advantages of using a single material: reduced stocking, simplified procurement and prevention of early failure due to fitment of a seal in the incorrect compound.
Isolast® J9876 has a continuous operating temperature range from +19°F to +527°F/ -7°C to + 275°C with occasional peaks up to +599°F / +315°C. The material’s unrivalled media resistance at high temperatures means excellent long-term physical property retention. The compound is available in any size O-Ring, gasket, molded part or rubber-to-metal bonded components, including door and gate seals. It is suitable for mechanical seals, chemical processing systems, pumps, valves, power generation equipment, refineries and semiconductor applications not directly exposed to plasma sources.
The new material is part of the Isolast® range of proprietary perfluoroelastomers from Trelleborg Sealing Solutions. In addition to this universal material the range includes a number of compounds specifically engineered for the requirements of the chemical processing, semiconductor fabrication and oil & gas industries.
