Valve seats are a fitting for valves and are used in the plumbing, agriculture, petroleum, and chemical industries, among others. Valve seats often act as a seal for valves, preventing leaks with a tight fit. While they can be made from metal and brass, plastics bring particular advantages that improve performance not available with other materials.
Resistant to corrosion and rust, plastic valve seats are ideal for applications where water or moisture is involved. Plastics also allow for greater design flexibility and are more affordable than alternative materials over the life span of the valve seat. With less leaks and downtime, plastic valve seats have a longer life than those made with metal, reducing interruptions in production and increasing efficiency.
