The chemical industry is one of the most important economic sectors, and in general, can be divided into the following areas:

  • Basic chemicals
  • Fine chemicals
  • Specialty chemicals
  • Inorganic chemicals: Acids, Alkalis, Salt
  • Organic chemicals: Pharmaceutical, Biochemical, Bioengineering

Each of these areas have different requirements, therefore, specially developed sealing solutions are required. The seals are essential for reliability, as they ensure hazardous, aggressive and corrosive media is controlled securely, regardless of the process or operating conditions.

Whether you are dealing with agrochemicals, basic chemicals, specialty chemicals, consumer products, or pharmaceuticals, Durlon® has the products, materials, and expertise you need in your industrial applications. When dealing with fine and specialty chemicals, gaskets that can withstand high temperature and chemical resistance are required. In addition to the use of aggressive and sometimes toxic media, temperatures from +300°C down to a cryogenic range are not uncommon. The material of the finished seal must be able to stand up to these varied conditions.

By combining innovative products with unparalleled service, Durlon® recognizes the potential hazards and critical need for personal safety in chemical processing industries, while also considering the importance of regulatory compliance, reduced downtime, ease of maintenance, integrity, and emission reduction. We invest a great deal in research and development to consistently improve the performance of our sealing products. In addition to outstanding chemical resistance to various aggressive media, our gasket materials must resist high and low-temperature extremes and possess robust mechanical strength.

Many of our gaskets are certified for API 6FB and API 607, 6th edition Fire Tests, BAM, FDA Compliant, ABS-PDA Certified, USP Class VI Certified RoHS Reach Declaration, and TA-Luft (VDI 2440).
