Pump Diaphragms

We offer a range of Composite multi-layer solutions for valves and diaphragms tailored to the needs of specific industries.

Overview
We offer a range of Composite multi-layer solutions for valves and diaphragms tailored to the needs of specific industries. Dimensionally stable, thermally weldable, and with high tensile and tear strength they provide long-lasting, consistent performance. Excellent flex life and reduced permeability enhance lifetime, reduce contamination, and protect equipment. 
Versiv™ Ultraflex Multimaterial Composite has the highest flex life compared to regular PTFE (up to 200% higher) and its high flex resistance means it has a long mean time between failure.
The non-stick washable surface saves time, material costs, and energy through low friction and easy-release properties. Additionally, thermal stability from -200˚C to 260˚C / -328˚F to 500˚F, electrostatic safety, and almost universal chemical resistance ensure high levels of safety.
Benefits of VERSIV™ FILMS IN PUMP DIAPHRAGMS
Chemical Resistance: 
PTFE composites highly resistant to chemicals, acids, and solvents. This makes them ideal for use in pumps that handle aggressive chemicals or corrosive materials. PTFE films can withstand a wide range of chemicals and are also resistant to hydrolysis, which makes them suitable for use in humid environments.
Flexibility and Durability:
Our composites are very flexible and can be formed into diaphragms that are thin and durable. They are also resistant to tearing and abrasion, which helps prolong their lifespan.
Low Friction: 
Our materials have a very low coefficient of friction, which means they do not stick to other materials easily. This makes them ideal for use in pumps that handle viscous or sticky fluids.
High-Temperature Resistance: 
Versiv™ products can withstand high temperatures without degrading, which makes them suitable for use in pumps that handle hot fluids.
Reduced Maintenance: 
Because our composites are durable and resistant to chemical attack, they require less maintenance than other materials, reducing downtime and saving on maintenance costs.Because our composites are durable and resistant to chemical attack, they require less maintenance than other materials, reducing downtime and saving on maintenance costs.
Pump diaphragm applications
Pump diaphragms are used in a wide range of applications, such as chemical processing, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage processing, mining, and wastewater treatment, where reliable and efficient pumping of liquids is required.
Versiv composite multi-layer solutions are used in pump diaphragm applications as the flexible barrier that separates the liquid or gas being pumped from the rest of the pump components.

Rigorous testing standards
Versiv develops custom application testing based on each of our partner’s product uses in order to create the best possible solution. Some tests that are included but are not limited to environmental, durability, and reliability testing to give you peace of mind making sure that products work in the hardest environments. Our testing begins during the co-development process to develop relevant tests and gather data that allows us to create market-ready solutions quickly.
Some of our tests:
  • FTMS 191A-5041

  • FTMS 191A-5030

  • FTMS 191A-5102

  • FTMS 191A-5136

  • ASTM D149-81
