The good mechanical properties of these elastomers - including tensile strength, elongation characteristics and wear resistance - prove invaluable for O-rings used in drive transmissions.
Excellent resistance to oxygen and weathering. Good resistance to hydrocarbon fuels and mineral oils. Resistance to acids and alkalis is low, and some grades are affected by water and humidity.
Typical operating temperatures
-15°C to +85°C continuous, or +100°C intermittent.
Fluid sealing duties
Stress relaxation above +50°C often precludes these elastomers from O-ring sealing applications.
Supplied in hardnesses of 55-95 IRHD. Grades are also available in hardnesses of 60-74 Shore D.
