Vermilion® Three

High performance elastomer for rapid gas decompression (RGD) resistance in higher temperature applications.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
  • Oil & Gas
  • Valves

The first elastomer Shell TAT approved to Shell MESC SPE 85/301, Vermilion Three is a next generation enhanced performance development of James Walker’s industry leading FR 25/90 material.

Vermilion Three is a fluoroelastomer (FKM) material offering excellent temperature performance, resistance to H2S and rapid gas decompression (RGD) plus the typical FKM tolerance of aromatics and hot water.
