Panacea® Advanced
Replacement Membrane Cell Gasket Systems

Molded Replacement Gaskets for Popular Chlor-Alkali Electrolyzers are advanced by Prince’s technology of using Panacea® proprietary compounds of rubber gasketing materials that increase the life of the material. Prince’s advanced methods of increasing the security of the fluoroplastic shields are done by extending the length of the shield and by sealing more of the sealing face.

Panacea® Elastomers
Prince has developed high performance elastomeric compounds that exhibit exceptional properties in the areas of chemical resistance, temperature range and compression set while being formulated without the use of materials such as certain metal salts that can be injurious to Chlor-Alkali membranes.

Prince also can provide these high performance membrane cell gaskets with a fluoroplastic protection to extend the life of the elastomer/gasket. This is often specified on the anode side gasket which experiences more difficult chemical conditions.

Prince Advancements

  • Each Replacement Frame Gasket Type has their own individual compounds used and the advancements associated with them.
  • Prince can secure the fluoroplastic shield to the elastomer with a fluoroplastic thread which secures the shield, preventing excessive assembly labor and process problems (MGC type).
  • Prince fluoroplastic armors more compartments of the anode and cathode gaskets to provide longer life in these areas (FM21/1500 Type).
  • Prince uses a continuous fluoroplastic armoring method, which prevents the voids that are sometimes found in products that utilize other methods of armoring which would shorten gasket life (all armored types).
  • Prince has incorporated the use of an EPDM “Skin” over the fluoroplastic film that contacts the titanium anode frames which helps to prevent crevice corrosion on the titanium frame in the case of a certain anode gasket (Bitac and ML32 types).
