NORSOK M-710 standard for elastomeric materials The NORSOK standards are developed by the Norwegian Petro-leum Industry to ensure adequate safety and cost effectiveness for developments within the petroleum industry. The NORSOK M-710 standard specifies the requirements for elastomeric seal-ing materials to be used in critical applications within the Oil & Gas sector. These requirements state the necessary documenta-tion for material properties in order to achieve full compound certification, and are listed in the M-710 table 2 - Required documentation of elastomeric material properties.
In addition to overall physical properties, the M-710 provides the essential acceptable criteria for both rapid gas decompres-sion (RGD) as well as sour gas ageing (H2S). These particular conditions offer an insight into long time behavior and overall life expectancy for the elastomers in question.
To provide our customers with added value, A/S Gunnar Haa-gensen now offers full NORSOK M-710 Rev. 2 certified HNBR rubber solutions. Material testing has been performed and ap-proved by UK independent research laboratory MERL, Ltd., (Materials Engineering Research Laboratory).
Highly Saturated Nitrile (HNBR)The NORSOK M-710 certified HNBR compound offered by A/S Gunnar Haagensen is a high performance elastomer for use in critical applications. High tensile strength coupled with good heat and chemical resistance, makes this compound an excellent solution for Oil & Gas related sealing solutions. HNBR articles are offered both in a broad range of standard and custom O-rings as well as application-specific moulded parts.
Features and benefits
High tensile properties Low compression set Good low temperature properties Excellent heat resistance Good resistance to aggressive and crude oils Good chemical compatibility Long life in aggressive media

Standard under developmentThe NORSOK M-710 standard is under continued development. As such the current Rev. 2 from October 2001 will be replaced by a Rev. 3 in the near future. New requirements for materi-al properties and test conditions can therefore be introduced. Contact us in case of questions regarding NORSOK M-710 ap-proved gaskets and sealing solutions.
