|ACM||Acrylic Rubber (ACM) shows excellent resistance to ozone, weathering and hot air, although it shows only a medium physical strength, low elasticity and a relatively limited low temperature capability. The operating temperatures range from -20°C and +150°C / -4°F and +302°F (for a short period of time up to +175°C / +347°F). Special types can be used down to -35°C / -31°F. ACM-materials are mainly used in automotive applications which require special resistance to lubricants containing many additives (including sulfur) at high temperatures|
|AU||Zurcon® polyurethane materials have a very good low temperature flexibility, high extrusion resistance and an extremely good abrasion resistance. They have a good hydrolysis resistance, low compression set, high tensile and tear strength and a good resistance to synthetic ester fluids and mineral oils. Zurcon® materials show a very low gas permeability, excellent dynamic sealing properties, no embrittlement in contact with O2 or O3 and are resistant to weathering and aging. The temperature range is between -50°C and +110°C / -58°F and +230°F.|
|CR||In general, the Chloroprene(CR) materials show relatively good resistance to ozone, weathering, chemicals and aging. Also, they show good non-flammability, good mechanical properties and cold flexibility. The operating temperatures range between -40°C and +100°C / -40°F and +446°F (for a short period of time up to +120°C / +248°F). Special types can be used down to -55°C / -67°F. CR materials are found in sealing applications such as refrigerants, for outdoor applications and in the glue industry.|
|EPDM||Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) shows good heat, ozone and aging resistance. In addition, they also exhibit high levels of elasticity, good low temperature behavior as well as good insulating properties. The operating temperatures of applications for EPDM range between -45°C and +150°C/ -49°F and +302°F (for a short period of time up to +175°C/ +347°F). With sulphur cured types the range is reduced to -45°C and +120°C/ -49°F and +248°F (for short period of time up to +150°C/ +302°F). EPDM can often be found in applications with brake fluids (based on glycol) and hot water.|
|FKM||Depending on structure and fluorine content, Fluoroelastomer (FKM) materials can differ with regards to their chemical resistance and cold-flexibility. FKM is known especially for its non-flammability, low gas permeability and excellent resistance to ozone, weathering and aging. The operating temperatures of the FKM range between -20°C and +200°C/ -4°F and +392°F (for a short period of time up to +230°C / +446°F). Suitably formulated FKM can be used down to -35°C / -31°F. FKM is also often used with mineral based oils and greases at high temperatures.|
|FFKM (Isolast®)||Perfluoroelastomers show broad chemical resistance similar to PTFE as well as good heat resistance. They show low swelling with almost all media. Depending on the material the operating temperatures range between -25°C and +240°C (77°F bis 464°F). Special types can be used up to +325°C (617°F). Applications for FFKM can be mostly found in the chemical and process industries and in all applications with either aggressive environments or high temperatures.|
|FVMQ||Fluorosilicone (FVMQ) has a good heat resistance, very good low temperature flexibility, good electrical properties and excellent resistance to weather, ozone and UV rays. FVMQ shows a significantly better chemical resistance than standard Silicone especially in hydrocarbons, aromatic mineral oils, fuel and low molecular aromatic hydrocarbons e.g. Benzene and Toluene.

|HNBR||Hydrogenated Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (HNBR) is made via selective hydrogenation of the Nitrile Rubber (NBR) butadiene groups. The properties of the HNBR rubber depends on the Acrylonitrile (ACN) content whichcontent, which ranges between 18% and 50% as well as on the degree of saturation. HNBR shows good mechanical properties. The operating temperature of HNBR ranges between -30°C and +140°C / -22°F and +284°F (for a short period of time up to +160°C) in contact with mineral oils and greases. Special types can be used down to -40°C / -40°F.|
|IIR||Butyl Rubber shows a very low gas and moisture permeability. In addition IIR also exhibit a good resistance to a great number of organic and inorganic chemicals, ozone, weathering and aging. The electrical insulating properties of IIR are excellent. The temperature range is between -40°C (-40°F) and +110°C (+230°F), for a short period of time +120°C (+248°F).|
|NBR||The properties of the Nitrile Rubber (NBR) depend mainly on the Acrylonitrile (ACN) content whichcontent, which ranges between 18% and 50%. In generalgeneral, they show good mechanical properties. The operating temperatures range between -30°C and +100°C / -22°F and +212°F (for a short period of time up to +120°C / +248°F). Suitable Suitably formulated NBR can be used down to -60°C / -76°F. NBR is mostly used with mineral based oils and greases.|
|VMQ||Silicon Rubber (VMQ) has a very good heat resistance, very good low temperature flexibility, good electrical properties and excellent resistance to weather, ozone and UV rays.
