ZI-208 EPDM Gasket

EPDM for MU Overcollars (ZI-208)
(V. 2018-11-22)


Use
Mostly MU Overcollars. The gasket is glued to the 315 mm Ø MU Overcollars and above. Glue: Terokal 2444 (polychloroprene basis, operating temperature from -30°C to +90°C)

Material
Closed-cell, flexible rubber gasket.
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer Rubber HY/EPDM. (DIN ISO 1629). 

Color: black
Without silicon, halogen or Polytetrafluorethylene.

Adhesive (when applicable): 
Acrylic dispersion. Liner: Protective film made of siliconized (*) paper.

(*) Self-adhesive products are usually fitted with a siliconized protective foil applied over the bounding surface. To install the product this foil must be removed: it is therefore not part of the product. The gasket material itself is silicon-free. It is possible however, that silicon traces are detected, as they can be transmitted to other parts during handling operations. An absolute silicon-free guarantee can, for that reason, not be given.

Operating Temperatures
from ≈ -40°C to ≈ +70°C (temporarily up to ≈ +80°C)

Behavior in Fire
Building Material Class: B3, easily inflammable
Fire Resistance: not applicable
Smoke Emission: not specified

Food Industry
Unsuitable.

Outdoor Exposure
Very good ozone, aging and weather resistances.
Weathering and UV resistance (DIN 53 386): Should not be directly exposed over long periods of time to the weathering agents.
Ozone Resistance (DIN 53 509): Tear-building 0.

Resistances
Mineral oils and fats: not resistant
Organic oils and fats: medium resistance
Softeners (commercial quality): resistant
Solvents: not resistant
Acids: resistant
Acetone: medium resistance
Ammonia: not specified
Chlorine or chlorine gas: medium resistance
Ethyl acetate: not specified
Ethyl alcohol: not specified
Ethylene glycol: not specified
Methanol: not specified
Propylene Glycol: not specified

The a.m. resistances are valid for the gasket only. The adhesive is made of acrylate dispersion and offers therefore a limited resistance to chemicals.

Please bear in mind that elastomers have generally a limited lifetime (i.e. through aging). For that reasons we recommend regular inspection and replacement intervals.

Chemicals and oils are available in very different qualities. Their properties vary depending on their concentration, operating temperatures, possible mix with other chemicals and the eventual presence of impurities. This is why gasket manufacturers only provide general information about the resistance of their products to various chemicals. In view of the above it is advisable that the client runs some tests in order to assess if the gaskets are suitable for the intended application. We regret not being able to provide more precise information.
