Excellent Sealing Properties With FKM, EPDM, and More
The core of an encapsulated O-ring is made from elastomers with superior sealing capabilities. Common core materials are silicone, fluoroelastomers (FKM), and EPDM—the choice of material depends on temperature, chemical compatibility, application requirements, and other factors. The encapsulated layer is made from FEP or PFA fluoropolymers.
Encapsulation provides exceptional resistance to a wide range of aggressive chemicals, which protects the core O-ring material and extends the life of the seal in corrosive environments. Encapsulated O-rings can contribute to increased process efficiency, reduced contamination risks, and improved product quality: They will benefit your semiconductor manufacturing applications.
