The CRG is a user-friendly tool to help seal specifiers choose the best elastomer for their application. DuPont said users can choose from more than 1,800 chemicals, and ratings are assigned to 20 elastomer families. The CRG provides additional information on DuPont Kalrez perfluoroelastomer parts and DuPont Viton fluoroelastomers.
The guide includes: an introduction to elastomers; the General Chemical Resistance Guide from the Los Angeles Rubber Group Inc.; and elastomer products from DuPont.
The CRG is provided free of charge from DuPont Performance Polymers on the DuPont website. Users click on “Access Chemical Resistance Guide” at www.crg.dupont.com for registration and immediate online access.
