PYROGARD C&D is a blend of polyamine and polyamide-epichlorohydrin copolymers. It is commonly used in the production of rubber and plastic seals, as well as a variety of other rubber and plastic products.
When exposed to PYROGARD C&D, rubber seals can suffer from a number of issues. This is due to the chemical’s ability to break down the rubber’s chemical bonds, leading to reduced elasticity and strength. Additionally, the chemical can corrode the rubber, leading to cracks and other defects that can cause the rubber seal to fail. Furthermore, the chemical can cause the rubber to become brittle, which can lead to further issues with the seal. Additionally, the chemical can cause the rubber to swell, resulting in increased resistance and a potential failure of the seal.
Viton ® o-rings from Marco Rubber offer excellent compatibility with a range of chemicals, oils and resist high temperatures up to 400F. Viton ® is also known as FKM made of fluoroelastomer one of the most versatile and widely used sealing materials.
