Precision Polymer Engineering manufactures high performance, elastomer O-rings and other related products with its EPDM elastomer material, EnDura E90SR. The material can withstand high temperatures and pressures, particularly in wet (steam) environments, with excellent resistance to rapid gas decompression.

Precision Polymer Engineering (PPE), a provider of high-performance O-rings, T-seals, technical moldings and sealing solutions, has developed EnDura E90SR, a new EPDM elastomer material that provides high temperature steam resistance.

EnDura E90SR is available as O-rings, T Seals and custom-molded geometries and is used in equipment such as pumps, valves, turbines, geothermal tools and drilling equipment.

Unlike traditional EPDM materials, EnDura E90SR can withstand high temperatures (up to 550˚F) and high pressures, with resistance to rapid gas decompression. These properties make the new material suitable for use in anaerobic high-temperature environments, such as those encountered in geothermal applications and enhanced oil recovery applications.

E90SR is the latest addition to PPE’s EnDura range of high performance elastomers specifically developed for high pressure environments. The EnDura range now includes all major polymer chemistries including fluoroelastomers (FKM), hydrogenated nitrile (HNBR), Tetrafluoroethylene/propylene dipolymers (FEPM) and perfluoroelastomer (FFKM).

EnDura E90SR is now available in all O-ring sizes and seal geometries.
