Zurcon Z53 and Z54
REACH Compliant Polyurethane Materials
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions launches its polyurethane materials, Zurcon Z53 and Zurcon Z54, which conform to the latest EU REACH environmental standards coming into force from November 2017. In addition, they meet customers’ requirements for higher operating temperatures.
Zurcon Z53 and Zurcon Z54 have been developed over a long research and development cycle to meet the demanding requirements of the European Commission regarding substances prohibited unless an exemption applies or an authorization is granted. The new materials will supersede theestablished Zurcon Z51 and Zurcon Z52 as the materials of choice for slipper seals and scrapers used in demanding fluid power linear and rotary applications, including the tough conditions faced in mobile, construction and mining applications.
The materials boast all the usual characteristics of Trelleborg’s Zurcon range of polyurethane materials, such as toughness and rigidity, as well as wear and scratch resistance and demonstrate the same performance characteristics of the materials they replace. In addition, the maximum operating temperature of Zurcon Z53 and Z54 has been raised by +20 °C in water and water-based fluids; from +40 °C to +60 °C.
