Materials Used in Seals

Materials Used in Seals

Reliable seals need to be made up of top-quality materials. At Fuzion Trading we only use the best of the best, here is a list of some materials we use and what they are made up of. 


Butyl rubber is a synthetic rubber that is largely known for being extremely waterproof and flexible. Butyl is the perfect rubber to use in cases where air and water tightness is required. Butyl is typically used in O-rings


Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer is a very hard-wearing affordable synthetic rubber. EPDM rubber is tremendously flexible and is 100% weather and UV resistant. Its tolerance to low temperatures makes it perfect for using in freezer rooms.


This silicone rubber is perfect for use in very high and very low temperatures and also has some chemical resistance. Flurosilicone is used for O-rings for jet fuel, different temperature scenarios, chlorinated solvents and certain petroleum oils to name a few.

Perfluoroelastomer (G-Plast)

Perfluoroelastomer contains a very high amount of fluorine and can work in the most extreme temperatures and are resistant to many harsh chemicals. If you need an O-ring that will be in contact with hydrocarbons O-rings containing Perfluoroelastomer are definitely the right choice.

Natural Rubber

Natural rubber as the name suggest is rubber made from natural ingredients, natural rubber is made from the latex sap of certain trees. Natural rubber is also known as India rubber, Amazonian rubber and latex. The best benefit about using natural rubber is that it is biodegradable.


Neoprene also falls under the family of synthetic rubbers, its appearance and texture being slightly different than your typical rubber.  Neoprene is very flexible and can withstand adverse temperatures. Neoprene handles contact with oils very well which puts it at the top of the list of O-rings.
