For your toughest, most corrosive services, Vespel® CR-6100 offers excellent performance as a
labyrinth seal.

Vespel® CR-6100 Application:

For extremely corrosive media, Vespel® CR-6100 can be used to manufacture centrifugal compressor labyrinth seals. Vespel® CR-6100 is used for stationary labyrinth type seals—tooth on stator designs. It is not used as an abradable seal (tooth on rotor design).

What to do When Applying Vespel CR-6100 to Centrifugal Compressor Labyrinth Seals:

  • Replace existing labyrinth materials with Vespel® CR-6100
  • Consult with Boulden and the maintenance shop doing the overhaul to establish design details.

  • Potential to reduce clearance compared to aluminum labyrinth seals leading to higher compressor efficiency
  • Near universal chemical resistance
  • Thermally stable to 500°F (260°C)
