Trelleborg introduces standard-compliant sealing material for water applications

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions is introducing a new ethylene propylene diene rubber (EPDM) compound called Turel E7Y30, specifically engineered to meet global potable water regulations.

Turel E7Y30, with a hardness of 70 durometers, avoids the potential issue of high elongation in automated assembly processes and provides reduced friction, which leads to reduced abrasive wear and increased life.

The material has been tested and approved for joining and sealing materials that come into contact with drinking water, meeting global regulation NSF/ANSI 61 Section 6.

It has also been tested and approved for installation in end-point devices intended to dispense water for human ingestion (NSF/ANSI 61 Section 9).

Turel E7Y30 is well-suited for products manufactured using automated assembly methods in end-use potable water applications such as faucets, valves, water heaters, ice makers, pumps, filters, meters, and fittings.

The compound has high chloramine and chlorine resistance and can be supplied in various seal types, such as O-rings, square rings, and gaskets.
