Transmission Components in Fluoroelastomers

Replacing both injection molded PA and conventional rubber, a new multi-patented fluoropolymer offers the chemical resistance of FKM with the rapid processing of thermoplastics.  It also provides excellent compression set over the range of application temperatures, good permeation and fluid resistance vs. traditional fluorinated TPVs and TPEs, while solving a warranty issue and preventing seal failure, which can lead to electrical shorts.  The unique 2-phase morphology of the material allows the ratio to be manipulated to produce either TPV or TPE formulations.  Zero-waste single-cavity direct injection leads to no scrap.
