Garlock has introduced a new Style 9938 rubber sheet material for use in chemical, oil and gas, and other applications that require a 100% fluoroelastomer material.
Due to its resistance to acids, aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, fuels and ozone, 100% fluoroelastomer material is often specified in many general service industrial applications. Heater treaters, one of the key applications for this product, subject gaskets and sealing materials to a range of aggressive chemicals.
“Style 9938 is designed to be a cost-effective, utility-grade solution for applications that require a 100% fluoroelastomer sealing product,” Garlock’s Sr. Product Manager Bruce Stratton said. “While this product will meet many industrial requirements, our applications engineers are available to consult with our customers to determine the appropriate material for their specific needs.”
Garlock offers Style 9938 in full-roll sheets, or cut into discrete gaskets to customer specifications. The rest of the product line, including Style 9520 and Style 9518, satisfies even more stringent requirements in terms of harshness and resistance to chemical attack.
Style 9938 can be specified:
- Where resistance to acids, aliphatic & aromatic hydrocarbons, fuels, and ozone is required.
- When cost is an issue but a 100% fluoroelastomer rubber sheet is required.
- Where high temperature seal-ability and compression set requirements are moderate.
