For many applications, low volume swell of elastomers is critical to proper operation of equipment. Excessive swell may cause permanent seal failure due to equipment hang \up, extrusion, etc. The following data is the result of lab testing to determine the volume swell of Kalrez® Spectrum™ 6375 when exposed to various fluids. Other physical property testing is needed to further define product performance; however, volume swell is an excell ent predictor of performance. The following chemicals represent some of themost aggressive applications in the industry. These test results are an indication of the performance of compound 6375; however, all applications are unique, and it is strongly recommended that immersion testing be performed in the actual process fluids.

Technical Details & Test Data+
Kalrez® Spectrum™ 6375 has excellent heat resistance to go along with its outstanding chemical resistance. Its proprietary curing technology allows this product to have a maximum service temperature of 275°C (525°F). One method of predicting heat resistance is compression set. This is defined as: the amount by which a standard test piece (typically an O-ring or pellet) fails to return to its original thickness after being subjected to a standard compressive load or deflection for a fixed period of time. This chart following shows some elastomer comparisons with regard to compression set resistance.
