Black Polyurethane Rubber Alternative

Black Polyurethane Rubber Alternative

I'm tasked with finding a vibration damping rubber mount that is compatible with solvents and acetone. What other materials should I look for beside black polyeurethane rubber? Will simple urethane mounts work just as fine?

Thank you.

RE: Black Polyurethane Rubber Alternative

EPDM, Butyl (and halobutyl) compounds will work well with acetone and other ketones. As for the term "solvents", this is far too general to give you a more specific answer.


RE: Black Polyurethane Rubber Alternative

Thank you, I will look into those materials.

I'm not sure exactly which solvents but generally the stuff that is mixed in with photoresist in photolithography. The mounts are used in wafer coating machines before all solvents are baked out of the resists, hence the constant acetone and solvents exposure.
Sorry I can't be more specifics due to troubles contacting our engineers.

RE: Black Polyurethane Rubber Alternative

The colour of the rubber has little influence on the chemical resistance. I would advice against (black) (poly)urethane rubber if you use aceton (+ other solvents).
