Silicone (PVMQ) Rubber Extreme-Low-Temperature Resistant 55 - 65
|Publication Date:||1 November 2011|
This specification covers a silicone (PVMQ) rubber in the form of sheet, strip, tubing , extrusions, and molded shapes.
These products have been used typically for parts required to operate or seal from -85 to +230 °C (-121 to +446 °F), compounded especially for operation at extreme low temperatures, but usage is not limited to such applications.
Silicone rubber is resistant to deterioration by weathering and by high-aniline-point petroleum-base oils and remains flexible over the temperature range noted.
These products are not normally suitable for use in contact with low-aniline-point petroleum-base fluids, including fuels, due to excessive swelling.
