Three of the leading trade associations representing the adhesives and sealants industry have collaborated to harmonise the industry’s classification manual. The 2012 ASC – CATIA – FEICA Adhesives and Sealants Classification Manual provides a common set of market definitions and product categories that can be used to represent the adhesive and sealant industry worldwide.
A new online Material Selection Guide is available from valve manufacturer DeZurik, based in Sartell, MN, USA. The web application makes it quick and easy to determine which metals or elastomers are suggested as suitable for valves in applications involving specific corrosive media, pressures, and temperatures.
In addition to the Chemical Resistance Guide (CRG) from Dupont Performance Elastomers, the Kalrez Application Guide has also been updated to help process and maintenance engineers select perfluoroelastomer seals by rating the resistance of Kalrez products in various combinations of temperature and chemical media.
