Flanges Like No Other

Durcor® flanges

Flanges are used in many industries as a quick and economical joint for easy access, cleaning or modification for their equipment or lines. PVC, Carbon Steel, Cast Iron and Stainless Steel are commonly used materials in modern pipe infrastructure. However, the demand for better material has been increasing since the 1930s to fulfil the call for flanges with high level of corrosion resistance and functionality.

In order to address specific concerns especially for applications such as;

  • Chlor-Alkali
  • Bleaches
  • Solvents
  • Acid
  • Caustic

Wah Joo Seng is pleased to present our latest revolutionary flange that performs like no other – Durcor® flanges. These made in U.S.A flanges are proven to be the strongest, lightest and most chemically resistant. This flange combines the benefits of PVC, PTFE and steel. It gives you maximum protection while helping you to save more in the long run.

Lightweight

Durcor® is as light as plastic
You don’t have to break a sweat while carrying Durcor® products.

A special composite compound is at the core of Durcor® flanges, making them featherlight that aids in easy transportation and installation. Durcor® flange weighs similarly to PVC flange and just a fourth of the weight of stainless steel or carbon steel flanges.

Chemical Resistant

Durcor®’s backbone material, vinyl ester resin, can withstand aggressive chemicals and hostile atmospheres such as acid sprays, bleach, salt water and chlorides. Durcor®’s chemical resistance outperforms stainless and ductile iron flanges in both corrosive and non-corrosive environment.

Strength

Durcor® has tensile and compressive strength that is comparable to steel; followed by an outstanding impact resistance, Durcor® flange is claimed to be virtually indestructible. Its reinforcing fibers are long and interlocked which allows a systematic load distribution throughout the entire matrix when it is pressurized. Durcor® flange is 8 times stronger than PVC flange and just a slightly less than stainless steel or carbon steel. Furthermore, Durcor® flanges are ANSI B16.5 classified and available in Class 150lbs or Class 300lbs ratings.
