|Oil and Gas |
PPE's range of elastomer grades are specifically tailored to provide high sealing efficiency for systems operating in the most inhospitable environments in the world including explosive decompression, sour gas, extreme temperatures and aggressive chemicals. The specialist range of EnDura® grades allows engineers to specify materials have been tested to international standards such as NORSOK, TOTAL and NACE.
Semiconductor production environments represent some of the most aggressive environments encountered by elastomer seals. Ultra-pure materials, extreme temperatures and a mixture of fluorinated gases and aggressive media push the boundaries of elastomer technology. PPE has developed a comprehensive range of specialist compounds, such as Perlast® and Kimura® grades, which are moulded in a cleanrooms, for use in critical semiconductor environments.
|Food and Dairy |
PPE's food and dairy material grades provide high performance food-contact sealing solutions with excellent mechanical capabilities and chemical resistance. Several material grades are compliant with the requirements of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and 3-A Sanitary Standards (3-A). In addition, PPE has pioneered the development of Detectaseal®, a range of innovative metal detectable elastomers which reduce the risk of food contamination.
|Pharmaceutical and Biomedical |
PPE offers a full range of Federal Drug Administration (FDA) and United States Pharmacopeia (USP Class VI) compliant sealing solutions for pharmaceutical and bio-analytical industries, where both thermal and chemical properties are crucial, and hygienic sealing capability is critical. PPE's materials range has been specially developed to provide seals which withstand a wide range of process media, potent API's, aggressive CIP/SIP cleaning regimes and stage II sterilization used to clean pipework and vessels.
|Marine and Power Engines |
As a leading supplier of high temperatures seals for diesel and gas engines, for both marine propulsion and electricity generation (gen sets), PPE offers a complete range of engineered solutions for 2 and 4 stroke engines, from small to large capacity. PPE elastomer materials have been developed for long-term resistance to coolants, lubricating oils, corrosion inhibitors and fuels and are available as O-rings, D-rings, U-section seals, lip seals, custom profiles and composite parts.
|Aerospace and Defence |
PPE manufactures O-rings and techncial rubber components to meet the needs of the entire aerospace supply chain and Naval surface ships and submarines. PPE is a Nadcap accredited, AS9100 Rev.C certified designer and manufacturer of high performance sealing solutions and offers a complete range of materials accepted by the UK Ministry of Defence.
|Flat Panel Display (FPD) and Solar Panel |
The PPE range of elastomer materials is widely used by OEMs and manufacturers of FPD displays and thin film solar panels to meet the demanding CVD process conditions and high reliability requirements of this market. With an emphasis on plasma resistance and reliability, PPE sealing components are available as O-ring, slit valve door seals, large O-rings/chamber seals, load-lock seals and KF/NW/ISO fittings.
