XSH-Pur is a hydrolysis resistant hard grade thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer (TPU). This material is the further development and modernising of material SH-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, providing easy sli

High hardness of a material promotes its excellent stability to extrusion

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


XSH-Pur is used as alternative to material PTFE in the combined sealing systems, consisting of two elements - a sliding ring (PTFE) and elastic O-Ring (NBR). The sliding ring out of XSH-Pur, unlike PTFE, can be installed easily and quickly without application of special instruments and techniques. Besides, material XSH-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.

XSH-Pur with increased hardness has excellent extrusion stability and can be used as a material for seals of different profiles, for example, in strongly worn out water plunger pumps and at very high pressure.

Mainly used

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