|Publication Date:||1 August 2011|
This specification covers virgin, unfilled
These moldings have been used typically for parts such as, bushings and insulators, requiring chemical inertness and good mechanical and electrical properties up to 500 °F (260 °C), but usage is not limited to such applications. For applications such as bearings, seals, and back-up rings that do not require dielectric properties it is recommended to use AMS3678/1 Grade A.
