Robust material selection

The Nuclear industry relies heavily on elastomers for sealing applications.

Elastomers are often used in the Nuclear Power industry for sealing components, such as for: airlock doors, glove boxes, shielding doors and windows, intermediate and low level waste containment flasks and power generation turbines. 

Possible applications include new-build power stations, containment drum seals and transfer port seals.

Specifying elastomer seals for Nuclear Energy applications requires robust material selection: physical robustness, chemical compatibility and resistance, and temperature performance in the operational environment.

NEXA compounds characteristics:

  • High temperature resistance (320°C)
  • High water steam resistance (300°C)
