“This new material represents the next generation of Isolast®, our proprietary perfluoroelastomer,” says Muzaffer Sheikh, Isolast® Product Manager. “It is engineered to provide a balance between outstanding thermal performance and compatibility to virtually all media. Its flexibility means that equipment manufacturers and processers can select it for all their demanding sealing needs.”
Optimized cost to performance ratio
Isolast® J9876 has a continuous operating temperature range from -7°C to + 275°C/ +19°F to +527°F with occasional peaks up to +315°C/ +599°F. Specifically developed to cover applications in mixed chemical streams including acids, bases, amines, steam, ethylene and propylene oxides, the material’s unrivalled media resistance at high temperatures means it has excellent long-term physical property retention. The compound is available in all O-Ring sizes, as gaskets, molded parts 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.
