Mercer Gasket, understands that material choices will differ greatly depending on your application—that’s why we manufacture high-quality gaskets using a wide range of elastomer materials to meet specific process conditions.

Gaskets made with elastomers are afforded enhanced resiliency against inclement environments and various substances, and the elasticity needed to withstand the most intense compression and torsion.

To illustrate some of the most common elastomers utilized in our products, we have created an Elastomers Materials Guide. Downloadable from our website, this guide will provide comprehensive information on the elastomer materials used in many of our gaskets, including:

  • Butyl
  • Hypalon
  • Buna-N
  • Neoprene
  • EFR
  • Silicone
  • Fluorosilicone
  • Fluoro Elastomers
  • Natural Rubber
  • SBR
  • Urethane

For each of these elastomers, you will acquire knowledge of their:

  • Industry Classifications
  • Chemical Definitions
  • Adhesive Properties to Metals
  • Temperature Usage Ranges
  • Tear, Abrasion, and Solvent Resistances
  • Durometer Ranges
  • Elongation Percentage
  • And More

Elastomers are quite versatile, but everyone—manufacturers and consumers alike—has different needs. This guide will enable you to make the most informed decision regarding your gaskets.

In addition to our Elastomers Materials Guide, we also offer comprehensive guides to a number of our other product materials, including a full materials list for both elastomers and metals, as well as a general materials guide for the most common materials used in our products.
