Perlast perfluoroelastomers for lifescience applications
The molecular structure of Perlast® perfluoroelastomers is very similar to PTFE, which makes them the ultimate sealing material to overcome specific sealing challenges found in the food, dairy, pharmaceutical, biomedical and lifescience industries.
Perlast® G74S is a white perfluoroelastomer (FFKM) that offers universal chemical resistance combined with high temperature capability up to +260°C (500°F). This material is also compliant with the following industry standards:-
- USP Class VI (chapters 87 & 88)
- 3A 18-03 Sanitary Standard (class I)
- EC1935/2004 and EC2023/2006
Perlast® G74S is resistant to steam, amines and solvents, making it ideal for withstanding SIP and CIP cleaning regimes. The unique cross-linking system employed in Perlast® grades ensures compatibility with virtually all chemicals. This enables users to rationalize onto a single material grade across all applications.
