Elastomer is just another word used to describe rubbers, they are materials that are made of polymers that are joined by chemical bonds, acquiring a final slightly crosslinked structure. The main characteristic of elastomer materials is the high elongation and flexibility or elasticity of these materials, against its breaking or cracking. Our elastomer materials include HNBR, Viton®, FFKM, and more.
Our Sulfone and Sulfide Series consists of PPS (polyphenylene sulfide) and PES (polyethersulfone) polymers. PPS and PES offer outstanding flexural strength and good high temperature resistance. PPS is often used in industrial applications where long-term dimensional stability at elevated temperatures is required.
Our Polyurethane series consists of standard non-resistant hydrolysis, hydrolysis resistant and self- lubricating urethanes. Our Polyurethane line can withstand extreme conditions while maintaining the flexibility needed to seal in some of the most demanding industrial applications. Key characteristics include; High strength, higher pressures, excellent abrasion resistance, and superior tear strength.
Our Polyimides Series consists of polyimide (PI), polyetherimide (PEI) and polyamideimide (PAI). These imide based materials are aromatic heterocyclic polymers and include some of our supplier’s highest temperature resistant materials. Outstanding wear resistance, long term thermal stability, and high strength and creep resistance at elevated temperatures are characteristic of this series. Their properties can be enhanced by adding various fillers and reinforcements.
Our Polyketones series consists of ketone based polymers including PEEK (polyetheretherketone), PEK (polyetherketone) and PEKK (polyetherketoneketone). This group of industry leading materials offer high strength, superb chemical resistance and dimensional stability. Because they are linear aromatic semi-crystalline polymers, they retain a high degree of mechanical properties close to their melting temperature (343°C for PEEK, 374°C for PEK).
Our Fluoropolymers consist of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and modified polytetrafluoroethylene (TFM) based materials. PTFE and TFM products operate successfully within a wide temperature range, have an extremely low coefficient of friction, possess good non-stick and release properties, and offer exceptional chemical inertness to salts, corrosives, and solvents, and good compliance.
