Reliable, even in the extreme cold!

Manufacturers of compressors, pumps and valves are often confronted with low temperature applications. It is well known that elastomers change their mechanical characteristics at temperatures near freezing and thus the sealing properties are massively influenced. At temperatures below –20°C  there ist also the danger of so-called "glas hardness" and irreversible brittleness of the elastomer may occur. The consequences of damaged seals are leakages, and thus contribute to the failure of compressors, pumps and valves as well as the associated effects on the production process.

CREAFLEX® LT elastomers show extremely high temperature resistance down to –60°C, even in aggressive media. The performance and service life of valves, pumps and mechanical seals is significantly increased by using CREAFLEX® LT elastomers.

Material properties:

  • Extremely high temperature resistance down to –60°C
  • Very good resistance in aggressive media
  • Long service life
