Retainers (Backup Rings), Hydraulic and Pneumatic, Polytetrafluoroethylene Resin, Solid, Un-Cut, For Use in AS4716 Glands
|Publication Date:||1 April 2015|
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) covers solid, uncut
Because of the construction of groove dimensions, backup rings specific to rod applications are designated "R" - Rod (Female), backup rings specific to piston applications are designated "P" - Piston (Male). Piston and rod types of virgin pigmented PTFE are also identified by color code which also distinguishes parts to this standard from those made from virgin PTFE to other standards.
Field of Application
Backup rings specified herein have been designed for a temperature range of -65 to 275 °F (-54 to 135 °C) and a nominal operating pressure of 3000 psi (20 694 kPa) for code 09 material (AMS3678/9). Alternate materials to AMS3678 are offered for more arduous operating conditions.
This specification includes material tests but does not include hydraulic or pneumatic performance tests.
