Safe solutions from Fluid Seals

Fluid Seals supplies O-rings and other seal components that are certified to be FDA compliant in Kalrez®, Viton®, EPDM, Nitrile and Silicone compounds.

What does "FDA compliant" mean?

FDA compliance” means that the rubber polymer is made from compound ingredients that are listed by the FDA and used in proportions within the FDA guidelines (specifically in accordance with the Code of Federal Regulations called CFR Title 21 Chapter 1, Subchapter B, Section 177.2600).

How do I meet USP Class VI standards?

With its combination of thermal and chemical performance and its rubber like sealing ability Kalrez® parts offer the food and pharmaceutical industries a new level of sealing against process contamination and seal failure.

An encapsulated o-ring has two components – a fluoropolymer outer jacket typically Teflon® FEP or Teflon® PFA and a rubber core to impart memory to the seal.
