Elastomeric & Polymeric Seals Division

This Division of the ESA represents manufacturers of all types of static and dynamic seals in elastomeric and plastic materials, and aims by combining knowledge and expertise to offer improved sealing performance to a wide range of industries through education, training, publications and joint research.




'Just how accurate is Arhenius Life Prediction for elastomeric seals?'

A major research project to give definitive data on how well users can rely on industry accepted techniques for life prediction of elastomeric seals in oilfield environments.

Latest development is a new project to see if alternative elastomer properties give more accurate prediction

Preventing Seal Failure

By consulting the ESA 'Succesful sealing with elastomers - An interactive guide to diagnose and prevent seal failure' the cause can be identified and a repeat prevented.


ESA membership is open to companies involved with fluid sealing and has many benefits.
