Chemical Resistant Seals

If the right material isn’t used for your seal, it results in cracking and premature wear, impacting its effectiveness. This is especially problematic in applications involving harsh fluids, which can degrade seals by breaking down the chemical bonds. Because of this, applications involving chemicals, acids, solvents, buffers, and gas require chemical resistant seals made to withstand harsh operating conditions.

NWRE manufactures chemical resistant rubber moldings based on your design and material needs. Our seals are widely used in oil and gas, chemical processing, automotive, and other industries to prevent leaks and equipment failure in:

  • Valves
  • Pipes
  • Pumps
  • Mixers or agitators

A combination of strict quality control standards and quick turnaround times make us the right choice for all your chemical resistant seal needs. Send us your design or enlist the help of our molding experts to find the best solution for your most demanding sealing applications.

Find the Best Material Option for Your Chemical Resistant Seals

Elastomers have elastic properties that make them highly durable and able to withstand fluid exposure. We work with a range of elastomeric materials and blends, providing good to excellent chemical resistance to meet a wide variety of sealing needs. Some of these materials include:

  • Chloroprene (Neoprene®)
  • EPDM
  • Fluorocarbon
  • Fluorosilicone
  • High strength rubber
  • Nitrile (Buna N)
  • Phenyl silicone
  • SBR
  • Silicone

Chemical resistance and chemical compatibility are critical factors in selecting the right material for your rubber moldings. Our material selection guide compares the advantages and disadvantages of different elastomers to find the best solution for your chemical resistant rubber moldings. Our experts can also assist you with selecting a material based on your seal design and intended application.
