Across pharmaceutical and biomedical industries, mechanical strength, chemical resistance and hygienic sealing capability are all critical factors. Precision Polymer Engineering's medical rubber grades have been specially developed to produce seals able to withstand a wide range of process media, potent active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and aggressive cleaning regimes.
Perlast® perfluoroelastomer medical seals provide the ultimate in thermal and chemical resistance. By using Perlast® seals, many manufacturers of process equipment have been able to extend the operating capability of their original equipment without expensive valve and pump redesigns. Lower overall cost of ownership can be achieved through a combination of increased seal life and reduced process downtime.
PPE material grades are Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and United States Pharmacopeia (USP) Class VI compliant, and provide excellent mechanical performance and solvent resistance. Many grades are also thermally stable at high temperatures, and ideal for use in applications that require prolonged high temperature exposure or experience Clean-in-Place (CIP), Steam-in-Place (SIP) and Stage II sterilisation.

Custom Rubber Seals
PPE designs and manufactures custom molded rubber parts and bespoke engineered components in infinite shapes and profiles to meet any sealing requirements.
With a specialist elastomer for every sealing application, our engineers can identify an elastomer O-ring to perform perfectly in your operating environment.
Energized lip seals provide a versatile sealing system for uni-directional pressure applications in either static or reciprocating dynamic conditions, in rod or piston grooves.
X-Rings / Quad Rings
X-rings offer an alternative sealing solution to O-rings for a wide range of reciprocating or rotary applications, especially under lower pressures and temperatures.
Chemical compatibility, thermo-mechanical evaluation, failure analysis and explosive decompression testing are services available from PPE's laboratories.
PPE offers a comprehensive design and modelling service for seals, custom moulded elastomers and bonded components.
