  • What is the Best Low Temperature O-ring?

    In the previous part of this series we examined which was the best O-ring material for use in high temperature applications (over 150°C). Today, we will explore what is the best low temperature O-ring according to several working demands. For the most part, many compounds already support a sub degree service temperature ranging from -5 to -25°C, for this reason we will only examine low temperature applications under -25°C.

    For working conditions below -25°C, you may wish to consider the following materials; NBR LT, HNBR LT, VMQ, FVMQ, Kalrez® 0040, Polymax P045B7LT, FEP Encapsulated O-rings and Astra seals.

Introduced by the Asahi Glass Ltd under the name AFLAS®, just 5 years after the invention of FKM, in 1975. The unique polymer structure of Aflas® offers properties with a continuous working temperature of 200°C and a maximum peak exposure temperature of 205°C, with outstanding chemical resistance.  Continue reading
