Radiation-resistant elastomer seals

GROUPE LATTY, a French designer and manufacturer of industrial seals for harsh industrial environments, has released a range of 80 Shore EPDM elastomer seals. The PMUC-certified, radiation-resistant seals are developed for nuclear applications and are qualified for accident conditions with a radiation resistance of up to 1700 kilogray (kGy).

The LATTY E48Z11LY1700 elastomer seals are intended to be used in semi-dynamic or static applications such as nuclear power plants, pumps, industrial valves, compressors, motors, actuators, bolted assemblies, pressurised devices and materials exposed to radiation.

They are available in various sizes and versions: O-rings, gaskets, moulded and machined seals, sheet gaskets, v-rings and other forms are available on request.

The seals are characterised by high resistance to weathering, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphate ester-type hydraulic fluids, polar solvents (water, alcohols, glycols, ketones), steam and detergents. Designed specifically for the nuclear industry, they are also suitable for medical field (imaging), instrumentation (radiation protection), or personal protection equipment.
