Extending the range of applications and environments in which a fluoroelastomer can be used, this material offers ultra-low temperature capabilities, RGD and chemical resistance.
Exceptional methanol resistance extending the application envelope of fluoroelastomer materials whilst also offering excellent RGD performance and useful low temperature capability.
RGD at high
Extending the RGD performance of this class of elastomer at higher temperatures, this material also offers resistance to aromatics and ‘sour’ media. Vermilion Three is Shell TAT approved to MESC 85/301.
Setting new standards for general sealing duties, this material offers exceptional RGD performance and enhanced resistance to ‘sour’ conditions and hot water over previous generations.
An enhanced HNBR offering improved levels of RGD performance, H2S and amine resistance with exceptional low temperature flexibility that will extend the envelope of performance for HNBR materials.
This Aflas® based compound has been formulated to offer enhanced RGD resistance combined with excellent performance in ‘sour’, methanol, amines and steam/hot water conditions.
Superior mechanical properties combined with the oil and fuel resistance of a nitrile material and outstanding RGD resistance for a broad range of oilfield applications.
