Why it pays to have a custom moulded rubber supplier on hand

01 February 2021

Elastomers are wonderful materials: flexible, durable and incredibly versatile. Except they are just as fallible to mechanical failure as any other industrial material over time. Common environmental factors – including heat, oxygen and light – contribute to the eventual deterioration of rubber parts. When such parts fail, the likelihood is a halt in production, indeterminate downtime and […]

What are the different types of polymers and their properties?

23 November 2020

When choosing a polymer material for your requirements, our expert polymerists at TRP Polymer Solutions weigh up a number of factors. These include the polymer’s hardness, tensile strength, elongation at break, compression set, specific colours and – crucially – the specific application environment your polymer material is likely to be exposed to on a day-to-day […]

Chemical resistant ‘O’ rings for pharmaceutical applications

26 October 2020

The pharmaceuticals industry is one of those rare industries whose products are often required to meet the highest standards of production as a matter of life and death. Which means that any seals employed in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals must comply with multiple mission-critical factors, including stringent hygiene standards and aggressive CIP/SIP cleaning regimens. TRP […]

PTFE rubber gaskets for chemical resistance

28 September 2020

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a synthetic fluoropolymer derived from tetrafluoroethylene. This versatile material boasts an extremely high melting point, high flexural strength, a low coefficient of friction and is hydrophobic. PTFE rubber is also chemically inert, which makes it the ideal choice of material for chemical resistant gaskets used in chlorine electrolysis.
