Poron Page Update

PoronSeal & Design has recently updated our Poron page to include PDF data sheets for the most common Poron materials available today.

Poron is a microcellular urethane foam with extremely low compression set. These high density, flexible cellular products are manufactured by continuously casting and curing mechanically frothed urethane intermediates to the desired thickness. By controlling chemistry and density, the properties of Poron materials can be widely varied.

PORON®XRD™ is a breakthrough technology that has been tested to absorb up to 90 percent of energy when impacted at high strain rates. The extreme impact protection is ideal for use in sporting goods and other outdoor industry products.

Chemraz 504 for Low Pressure Valves

Safety Valve

Seal & Design was recently contacted by an OEM valve manufacturer that was experiencing leakage in their low pressure rated valves.  They needed a soft material that had a very broad chemical resistance.  The customer tested Chemraz 504, and it successfully passed their bubble test.

Chemraz 504 has a 65 durometer hardness which makes it ideal for low pressure applications.  The valve manufacturer now specifies Chemra 504 for all seat applications, and Chemraz 505 for their static seals.
