The Ultimate Extreme Temperature and Pressure Sealing Solution
The Astra Seal® is a unique extreme temperature and pressure sealing solution developed by NES, specifically developed to excel in cryogenic applications.
Developed by an Aerospace Engineer to tackle the harsh environments associated with liquid oxygen and the challenges of sealing other cold media, such as liquid nitrogen and hydrogen, Astra Seal® perfectly copes with the extreme low temperatures that cause most O-rings to become brittle and fail.
Rigorous testing in harsh environments has demonstrated that the Astra Seal® consistently outperforms FFKM for compression set performance.
