Umbrella Valves

Market:

Water, Food & Beverage

Material:

Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR)

Application:

Check valves are used in a wide range of plumbing applications including water softeners, faucets and toilets. These LSR check valves improve design function and cost efficiency over similar parts using traditional millable gum processes.

Benefit:

Long term seal life where temperature variation and resistance to aging are important OEM design considerations. LSR provides a lower cost option with a cleaner manufacturing process.
