PolyMod | Zatkoff



PolyMod® elastomers are ideal for custom or standard seal configurations:
  • In existing equipment, no sealing gland modifications are required to replace conventional seals with PolyMod® elastomeric seals and significantly reduce friction.
  • In new designs, simply determine the proper geometry for the application, and then select the PolyMod® elastomeric material for the specific operating conditions. Follow standard engineering practice for determining seal gland dimensions and materials surface finish.
PolyMod® elastomers can also enhance performance in other applications where friction reduction is a priority. PolyMod® elastomers can be customized to fit specifications for a variety of applications. In addition to PolyMod® elastomers, all Nitriles, EPDM, Butyl, Fluorocarbon, Ethylene Acrylic, TFE/P, and Neoprene elastomers can be modified.

Made of PolyMod®... Made to last.

PolyMod® is not a process that chemically treats the surface. PolyMod® has lower friction than surface modified materials. It is not a coating that will chip off or wear away.

Compare Friction and Wear

In custom or standard applications where friction and wear are problems, PolyMod® elastomeric materials
can significantly enhance performance, efficiency and longevity. PolyMod® elastomeric materials are ideal for pneumatic and hydraulic operations where reduced friction is important. The wide variety of PolyMod® elastomeric materials gives system designers options for maximizing performance.

Improved Performance

PolyMod® high performance elastomers have enhanced properties which make them tougher, and allows them to run cooler than conventional elastomers. Therefore, they do not suffer the accelerated deterioration of conventional elastomers.
