Elastomer Sealing Performance in Hydrogen Fuel Cells Innovation Study

RDAbbott teamed up with Cancarb and ARLANXEO to explore elastomer sealing performance advancements using Thermax® N990 and X_Butyl® Bromobutyl designed for hydrogen fuel system technologies.

In this study, we employed hydrogen permeation testing at elevated 90°C to better mimic the current operating conditions for Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) fuel cells.

We evaluated these permeation-resistant polymer systems with synergistic tortured path mechanisms in a fuel cell operational environment.
