The challenges of the chemical industry require a high differentiation of materials and the choice depends on the specific sector of use. Suitable material can only be assessed on a case-by-case basis. However, some general aspects can be identified.

In chemical process technology there is an essential rule: exceptional resistance is required. From liquid dosing systems to the reactor, from the valve to the tank, the seals must always have extraordinary resistance to chemicals, temperatures or extreme pressures.

The sealing solution must guarantee maximum duration over time. Seals based on FFKM or FEP represent the ideal solution to guarantee resistance to chemical agents as they guarantee stability to the seal.

High performance compounds

FFKM-based elastomer has a high chemical resistance and therefore represents the ideal solution in the chemical industry.
