Silicone (VMQ) Rubber Lubricating Oil and Compression Set Resistant, Electrical Grade 55 - 65
|Publication Date:||1 May 2014|
This specification covers a silicone (VMQ) rubber in the form of sheet, strip, tubing, extrusions, and molded shapes.
Application: Primarily for parts required to operate or seal from -55° to +230°C (-67° to +446°F), compounded especially for aircraft piston engine oil resistance, low compression set, and controlled dielectric strength. Silicone elastomer is resistant to deterioration by weathering and by high-aniline-point petroleum-base oils and remains flexible over the temperature range noted. This elastomer is not normally suitable for use in contact with gasoline or aromatic fuels and low-aniline-point petroleum-base fluids due to excessive swelling of the elastomer.
Safety - Hazardous Materials:
While the materials, methods, applications, and processes described or referenced in this specification may involve the use of hazardous materials, this specification does not address the hazards which may be involved in such use. It is the sole responsibility of the user to ensure familiarity with the safe and proper use of any hazardous materials and to take necessary precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of all personnel involved.
