Elas­tomer resis­tance list

The resis­tance of elas­tomers to cer­tain media depends on var­i­ous fac­tors such as tem­per­a­ture, pres­sure, dura­tion of con­tact, flow rate or even mechan­i­cal stress.

To assist design­ers, pur­chasers and devel­op­ers in select­ing a suit­able rub­ber grade for their spe­cif­ic appli­ca­tion, we have com­piled the chem­i­cal resis­tance of var­i­ous elas­tomers in our resis­tance list below. The table has been com­piled on the basis of doc­u­ments and expe­ri­ence gained in the chem­i­cal and rub­ber pro­cess­ing indus­tries as well as pub­li­ca­tions by well-known raw mate­r­i­al man­u­fac­tur­ers, but makes no claim to com­plete­ness.

When select­ing a suit­able rub­ber qual­i­ty, the man­u­fac­tur­ing process to be used also plays a deci­sive role. You will find fur­ther expla­na­tions in our JÄGER Wiki.

In order to test the suit­abil­i­ty of a rub­ber com­pound, it is advis­able to test the vul­can­izate under actu­al or sim­u­lat­ed oper­at­ing con­di­tions. We offer our clients the pos­si­bil­i­ty to send us a chem­i­cal sam­ple includ­ing infor­ma­tion on their respec­tive appli­ca­tion con­di­tions. In our test lab­o­ra­to­ries we then check the resis­tance of your sam­ple in var­i­ous tests.

Sim­ply enter a mate­r­i­al or search term. Then select the appro­pri­ate term to obtain fur­ther infor­ma­tion about the respec­tive resis­tance.

You can update the search term again at any time by re-enter­ing it.
