Seals for every use case on your production line

Seal materials and profiles in biopharma process applications are optimized to resist thermal, chemical and radiation sterilization while maintaining long term compression set resistance.  High purity or neutral materials such as PTFE. FFKM (perfluoroelastomer) and VMQ (silicone) are prevalent in these applications. Novel design modifications often focus on limiting seal surface contact with process fluids to minimize any downstream contamination from the seal material itself.
