THE ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES OF RUBBER
|The Rubber:||Introduced to the market in 1956.|
|Resistance and properties:|
VMQ Silicone rubber modified with fluorine offers good resistance to high and low temperatures, resistance to liquids, such as mineral oils and fuels, and in addition outstanding ozone resistance and resistance to oxidation and to the weather. It also does not readily adhere to anything. The resistance to low temperatures to -50 to -60 deg Celsius is better than that of FKM. The tensile strength and tear strength are lower at room temperature than those of other fluoroelastomers. Its specific gravity is also lower than that of FKM, at around 1.4.
Performs poorly with respect to gas impermeability.
Particularly in the aviation industry.
