FFKM and Metal seals have been the leader in high temperature sealing environments, resulting in higher part costs in order to ensure reliability. Parker's new VA179-75 FKM material provides a cost effective solution without the need to sacrifice resilience.
Moisture is a detrimental factor when it comes to manufacturing or processing electronics, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, or sensitive chemicals. Where gaskets and other sealing solutions work to ensure an enclosure is waterproof, that does not guarantee the container is also moisture-proof.
We are a growing team with a variety of specialties and skills working together to create solutions.
