What is Perlast® ICE?

Perlast ICEExceptional perfluoroelastomers for extreme low temperature sealing

The Perlast® ICE range of perfluoroelastomers has been developed to provide excellent resistance to a broad range of chemicals whilst offering exceptional low temperature performance.

These revolutionary perfluoroelastomers (FFKM) exhibit low permeability and 
as a result are less prone to swelling, which leads to extended in-service life
and reliability in valves, pumps and mechanical seals.

Perlast® ICE materials are perfect for use in oil and gas applications such as exploration and completion equipment operating or stored in sub-zero temperatures.

The Perlast® ICE range consists of two materials; G75LT (75 durometer) and G90LT (90 durometer), both grades are durable, flexible and reliable, and suitable for static and dynamic applications. 

Low temperature testing
In low temperature pressure tests, Perlast® ICE materials were proven to seal down to -80°C (-112°F) at 9000psi.

Perlast® ICE elastomers can be fully moulded into standard and non-standard sized O-rings (up to 2.5m/8ft diameter) and custom shapes.

Key attributes:

  • Operating temperature: -46°C to +250°C (-51°F to +482°F)
  • Excellent chemical resistance to a wide range of chemicals including acids and amines
  • Low compression set for long-term sealing performance
  • Good mechanical properties
  • Excellent ED resistance, tested to NORSOK M710 (G90LT grade)
  • Sour gas resistant, tested to NORSOK M710
