Rubber: Fluorocarbon (FKM) High Temperature/Fluid Resistant Low Compression Set/ 85 to 95 Hardness For Seals In Fuel Systems and Specific Engine Oil Systems
|Publication Date:||1 May 2013|
This specification covers a fluorocarbon (FKM) rubber in the form of O-rings, O-ring cord, compression seals, and molded-in-place gaskets for aeronautical and aerospace applications.
These products have been used typically as sealing rings, compression seals, O-ring cord, and molded-in-place gaskets in contact with air and a wide variety of fuels, lubricants, and specific hydraulic fluids but usage is not limited to such applications. Each application should be considered individually. This class of fluoroelastomers is not recommended for use in high temperature stabilized, "HTS", engine oils. Each "HTS" oil should be evaluated separately. This fluorocarbon rubber has a typical service temperature range of -20 to +400 °F (-29 to +204 °C) in air.
