Isolast J9876, a recent perfluoroelastomer, provides the most comprehensive media resistance at elevated temperatures of any perfluoroelastomer on the market, according to its developer. Seals in this material, from Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, extend their life in aggressive, high-temperature environments at an optimized cost-to-performance ratio. Equipment suppliers and process managers benefit from the advantages of a single material: reduced stocking, simplified procurement and prevention of early failure due to fitment of a seal in the incorrect compound.
“This new material represents the next generation of Isolast, our proprietary perfluoroelastomer,” says Muzaffer Sheikh, Isolast Product Manager. “Isolast provides a balance between outstanding thermal performance and compatibility to most all media. Its flexibility means equipment manufacturers and processors can select it for all their demanding sealing needs.”
Isolast J9876 has a continuous operating temperature range from +19 to +527F (-7 to 275C) with occasional peaks to 599F (315C). The material’s media resistance at high temperatures means excellent long-term physical property retention. The compound comes in any size O-ring, gasket, molded part, or rubber-to-metal bonded components, including door and gate seals.
