Series 1230 Fluorosilicone Rubber Extrusions
Fluorosilicone strip, tubing, cord, “P” seals, “U” channel and special molded and extruded shapes are available to MIL-R-25988 and other specifications. This material has a superior fuel and oil resistance combined with silicone’s typical high temperature capabilities. Applications include gaskets or seals demanding service in contact with jet fuel, solvents, gasoline, or crude oil. This elastomer is serviceable over a temperature range of -60ºC to 177ºC (-76ºF to 350ºF). In dry heat, the serviceable temperature range is extended up to 232ºC (450ºF). Physical properties are comparable to those of general-purpose compounds. Dimensional designators will be the same as “solid” silicone extrusions.
TYPICAL INDUSTRIES UTILIZING FLUOROSILICONE RUBBER:
- Aircraft, military, and commercial aviation.
- Petrochemical and oil refining industries.
