Chemical resistance

Contrary to most other elastomers, Vulkollan® has a very good resistance to different chemicals, particularly to mineral oils, gasoline and benzol.


Vulkollan® parts stay dimensionally stable even after prolonged contact with oils and gasoline. Only after longer immersion in benzol some swelling can be observed.


Even after frequent contact with one of these chemicals, the mechanical values of Vulkollan® stay at a high level. As such Vulkollan® has found multiple applications in hydraulic applications, even in the avionic sector as Vulkollan® is one of the only elastomers that is resistant to Skydrol™.
