VICTREX CT™ 200 POLYMER

For dynamic cryogenic sealing applications
Text
The production of natural gas continues to grow globally, representing 22% of the global energy consumption in 2017. Polymers and elastomers are essential components of the Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) supply chain, from liquification to gasification.
Text
The storage and transportation of LNG provides a range of low-temperature engineering challenges to the industry. According to EN / ISO 1690312, many common materials fail in a brittle manner when they are exposed to these very low temperatures.
Text
VICTREX CT 200 polymer offers processors and end-users a tailor-made solution to address the challenges of dynamic low-temperature environments. Victrex sealing material solutions are designed and tested for performance in cryogenic environments offering more consistent and reliable sealing across a broad temperature range compared to fluoropolymers.

IMPROVED SEALING
FROM -196 TO 150°C

versus PCTFE

Higher tensile strength coupled with lower modulus confirms more ductility across a wider range of temperatures

Text

MORE CONSISTENT
SEALING

versus PCTFE

Higher thermal conductivity permits a faster reaction to temperature changes allowing the seat seal to keep interference with the steel counter-surface

Text

LESS EXPANSION AND
CONTRACTION

versus PCTFE

Lower and constant coefficient of thermal expansion ensures more dimensional stability and minimizes the shrinkage at low temperatures
