Materials Specific to Healthcare & Medical
Our gaskets can be made from various rubber elastomers such as VMQ, EPDM, FKM, NBR, HNBR, as well as our proprietary FFKM, Isolast®. They can also be made of our proprietary Turcon® PTFE based and Zurcon® UHMWPE materials.
Gaskets are used in a variety of medical, pharmaceutical and biotechnology applications, generally as a static seal where an O-Ring does not provide an adequate seal. In these cases, improved performance can be achieved by molding a custom-shaped gasket that more precisely fits into the mating groove. The cross section of the gasket can also be customized to optimize seal performance. These seals are used on a variety of equipment, often used to protect the equipment from the environment.
