Step 1Chemical Compatibility

Enter the minimum and maximum operating temperature required of the elastomer seal or rubber component.

Step 2

Select from a list of over 1000 chemicals those which are involved in your sealing application to compare the rubber chemical resistance and compatibility of various sealing materials.
 

Chemical Comptibility step 2Step 3

A list of results displays the elastomer compatibility of 16 types of rubber and 3 types of thermoplastic polymers (compatibility results based on ambient temperature). 
The table scores each material against each of the chemicals and indicates whether the sealing materials meet the operating temperature requirements.
Simply select the materials which are most suitable to proceed to a list of material grades.


Step 4chemical compatibility step 4

A comprehensive list of suggested PPE material grades is displayed which match your elastomer compatibility requirements. Relevant approvals and certifications are given for each material. 

The list can be sorted by physical properties such as colour, hardness, compression set, etc, or filtered by industry.  You have the option to print the list, export to Excel or copy to clipboard to paste into your own document. 

Datasheets can be downloaded with just one click or a request for quotation emailed direct to our sales team.
