O-rings, rubber seals and custom moulded rubber components for:

hydraulic brake systems seals and diaphragms

plumbing applications

Application Advantages

petroleum fuel and oil resistance

resists flex cracking

good ozone resistance

good heat resistance

Application Disadvantages

poor compression set performance relative to NBR

lesser water resistance and low temperature performance than some other elastomers
