The Color-Coding Solution: Durlon® Identa-Seal® Program

Posted by Alex Chappell on May 11, 2016

Engineers and procurement managers are inundated with choices of black elastomers and fluoroelastomer materials for gaskets and critical sealing applications. In normal lighting, the similarities between seals can cause confusion, accidental product mix-ups, and, ultimately, dangerous and costly gasket failure.  

To combat material mix-ups and catastrophic failures, Gasket Resources Inc. (GRI®) is proud to introduce Durlon® Identa-Seal®, the first line of color-coded sealing materials made from 100% Genuine Viton® fluoroelastomers. With Identa-Seal®, you’ll never have to worry about guessing between gaskets and sealing materials again.iStock_000040025962_Large.jpg
