SH-Pur is a hydrolysis resistant thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer (TPU). This material is the further development and modernising of material H-Pur, it still perfectly works in hot water (natural and sea) based, flame retardant hydraulic fluids (HFA, HFB), biologically degradable fluids (bio-oils), mineral oils., etc. SH-Pur is modified by introduction of special combinations of grease lubricants, therefore the seals made out of this material, can ensure much easier sliding with extremely low coefficient of friction and insignificant heat.

SH-Pur is highly resistant to ozone, weather impact and temperatures. As well as H-Pur, this material is very recommended for usage in tropical regions. Swelling in mineral oils is low. SH-Pur has the same high resistance to radiation exposure and gas permeability as H-Pur. 


Good resistance Average resistance Low resistance
Hydraulic fluids based on mineral oil Fire-resistant fluids of type HFC (water glycol mixture) Aromatic hydrocarbons
Biologically degradable hydraulic fluids Some additives for power can have destructive effect (e.g. fungicides) Chlorinated hydrocarbons (dichloromethane, trichloromethane)
Fire-resistant pressure fluids HFA and HFB Ethanol Ketones and glycols
Mineral oils and grease (certain additives can have destructive effects) Non-ethanol fuels (except premium blend petrol and unleaded fuels) Break fluids, based on glycol
Silicone oils and grease Hot steam exceeding +100°С
Aliphatic hydrocarbons (e.g. propane, butane) Concentrated acids and basis
Hot water and sea water up to +90°С
Diluted acids and basis


SH-Pur is used as alternative to material «Domestic» (NBR+fabric) in the combined sealing «shevron» systems, consisting of several elements. Besides, material SH-Pur - with the lowered coefficient of friction, ensures easier movement and total absence of effect «stick-sleep» that is important for smooth operation of the gear, without microstoppings and jumps.

SH-Pur can be used as a material for seals of different profiles, for example, in water plunger pumps as a «shevron systems» and in reducers-machines, as a rotor seal of shaft for high speeds of rotation.

Mainly used

  • Wipers
  • Piston seals
  • Rod seals
  • O-Rings
  • Rotor seals
