Extreme Low-Temperature FKM

August 14, 2018

Diacom’s Extreme Low-Temperature FKM is a new FKM material specifically formulated to remain flexible down to -40°F (-40°C). Extreme Low-Temperature FKM was also designed to be a high-duro compound with excellent compression set resistance for use in dynamic and static seals (e.g. diaphragms, o-rings and gaskets).

Value Added Assembly

August 14, 2018

Many of our customers want more than just traditional diaphragms. In response, we have developed expertise in value added assembly work. We assemble diaphragm seals to multiple sub materials such as plastics, metals, PTFE and various other materials. DiaCom has a strong network of approved outsourced suppliers that can produce a variety of components.

UBA-Approved EPDM Elastomer

April 12, 2018

DiaCom Corporation introduces a new EPDM Elastomer developed to meet the various European water regulatory agency requirements for potable water. This newly developed EPDM material has UBA, ACS and WRAS approval. Diacom has the ability to mold with this material in homogenous diaphragms and other seals, fabric reinforced diaphragms both double and single coat and PTFE faced diaphragms.

FFKM - Perfluoroelastomer Diaphragms & Seals

April 4, 2018

DiaCom Corporation is pleased to introduce diaphragms custom manufactured with advanced peroxide-cured perfluoroelastomer (FFKM) into our lineup. These diaphragms and seals are specially formulated for broad chemical resistance in multiple environments requiring flexibility and heat resistance. The compound used has outstanding hot air resistance, improved high temperature compression set resistance, good strength and flexibility, inherent ozone resistance and excellent permeability resistance. Diacom can mold this material with or without fabric reinforcement, and can over-mold it to metal inserts.

PTFE-Faced Diaphragms

April 4, 2018

In efforts to manufacture diaphragms which are able to stand up to the most chemically aggressive of environments, DiaCom Corporation has once again innovated a new line of PTFE-faced diaphragms. DiaCom Corporation uses a variety of fluorinated films including PTFE, TFM, PFA, and FEP. These diaphragms are compatible with harsh environments without limiting their life and responsiveness. For additional strength, fabric reinforcement can be added to the PTFE composite. Bonded inserts of stanless steel, brass, plastic, and cold-rolled steel are often incorporated into these diaphragms as well to reduce process and assembly steps and add value.

Ionic Hybrid Elastomers

December 28, 2016

DiaCom has developed elastomer formulations using Ionic Hybrid Technology in combination with additional compound refinements and enhancements to offer improved flex life. This technology can be utilized in any Diaphragm design and geometry, which include with or without fabric reinforcement, bonded inserts and barrier films. Ionic hybrid cure technology can also be combined with DiaCom’s Fab-Air dispersed fiber.

Elastomeric Diaphragm Seals

February 7, 2016

The DiaCom Proprietary Double-coat process has been developed so the elastomer is not “formed” from calendared sheet stock but is molded from an equal amount of unvulcanized elastomer on each side of the fabric. This eliminates dimensional instability and ensures that the fabric is constantly oriented near the center of the part, which has traditionally been problematic with double coat diaphragms produced from calendared material.

Fab Air Diaphragm

January 14, 2015

Diacom Corporation introduces a new line of specialty diaphragms composed of our Fab-Air Elastomer, which offer the advantages of fabric reinforcement in a homogeneous diaphragm construction.

Chemical Packaging Seals

September 1, 2012

DiaCom has developed an industry-leading packaging liner, composed of fluorinated films with advanced elastomers, that seals air and moisture from sensitive solvents and reagents.

Nano Seals

November 4, 2012

Nano Diaphragms™ have been developed by DiaCom Corporation to meet the ever-increasing demand for effective seals in a wide range of miniaturized applications, from precision instruments and medical devices to aerospace.

Small Engine Carburetor Diaphragms

DiaCom is a leading manufacturer of small engine carburetor diaphragm seals, which are designed specifically for ultra-sensitive and fuel resistant applications.
