How to select the right Rubber material ?

It’s important to select the right rubber material for the applicaiton and the environment. Most rubber materials will have the flexibility to be used in different  applications.

Please consider below factor

What medium will contact when using, oil, chemicals…?

What is application temperature?

Dynamic seal or static seal?

Surface seal or shaft seal?

Remark: If still not sure, suitable material could be suggested according to WORKING CONDITION, for example: working temp. and working medium ( oil, seawater, solvent and so on)

Yoson can help you to identify the best, most cost effective material for your application.
