TRP Polymer Solutions employs a range of oil resistant materials for the manufacture of high-performance sealing solutions destined for heavy-duty industries. Offering superior resistance to oils, sour gas, chemicals and rapid gas decompression (RGD), our oil resistant rubber materials are simply the best.
At TRP Polymer Solutions we understand that off-the-shelf gaskets often fall short in many industrial applications. As such, our technical experts are adept at working closely with customers to develop custom gasket solutions that are made specifically for the job. In this article, TRP Polymer Solutions talks you through the evolution of gaskets that has brought us to the bespoke solutions now available today.
In chemical sealing applications it is imperative that ‘O’ rings retain their integrity. Chemical resistant ‘O’ rings are the only seals that guarantee a high-performance sealing solution that can withstand the demands of chemical media. In this article, TRP Polymer Solutions introduces you to the most reliable chemical resistant ‘O’ ring materials.
The US-based Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is tasked with protecting public health by imposing stringent standards on the manufacture of food and cosmetics. Accordingly, any rubber materials that come into contact with these consumables must adhere to FDA regulations. In this article, TRP Polymer Solutions illustrates some of the most popular FDA grade rubber materials.
Standard ‘O’ ring materials can struggle to perform optimally in ultra-low temperature applications. Once temperatures are reduced to below the working limits of the material they resist the deformation that usually occurs under pressure and is so vital to maintain seal integrity. This is where specialised ultra-low temperature ‘O’ rings offer the perfect solution.
Although they are both used for sealing, gaskets and ‘O’ rings are actually quite distinct in appearance and application. To avoid unnecessary cost and extended downtime, it is essential to specify the right type of seal for the job. Here, TRP Polymer Solutions explains the difference between gaskets vs ‘O’ rings.
When choosing between different types of ‘O’ ring materials, a common conundrum is whether to opt for rubber ‘O’ rings or silicone ‘O’ rings. In this blog, TRP Polymer Solutions assesses the pros and cons of rubber vs silicone ‘O’ rings to assist with your decision-making process.
In this article, TRP Polymer Solutions explores the chemical properties that lead to FFKM’s temperature range capabilities.
In this article, TRP Polymer Solutions pitches both materials against each other in an FKM vs PTFE comparison to see which is the ultimate fluorinated material.
Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a remarkable polymeric material. Not only is it highly chemical resistant, durable, flexible, and electrically and thermally resistive, it is also an extremely cost-effective option for high-performance seals and 'O' rings. Here, TRP Polymer Solutions talks you through PTFE’s uses and properties.
