Re: Nathan 1918A Injector pre-production sample

You have done what others have only dreamed about. So much for doing things the old way when you get perfect results doing it the new way. Keep up the good work and high quality we have come to expect from your wonderful products. Richard

Viton. But it should be high quality from a major mfg such as Parker or DuPont or else it might not last long. Better yet is AFLAS and Seals Eastern makes the real deal in-house properly. 80 durometer good but 90 durometer better if suitable in your application.
