O-rings made of Aflas are generally utilized in chemical and high temperature applications.
Aflas O-Rings Description
Aflas® material is an elastomeric based fluororubber, a copolymer of tetrafluoroethylene and propylene. This elastomer offers excellent chemical resistance qualities, with serviceability in the temperatures up to 550 degrees F depending on environment. Services where Aflas might be applicable include inorganic acids, alkalis, high temperature steam, polar solvents, organic bases, hydrocarbon oils, amines and amine corrosion inhibitor systems, and hydrogen sulfide bearing fluids.
Excellent heat resistance with continuous service temperature capability of 450°F, chemical resistance including resistance to strong acids and bases, high electrical resistivity, excellent oil resistance. Aflas® is a copolymer of TFE and Propolene, an elastomeric based fluororubber.
O-Rings Temperature Range:
-25 F to +450 F+
AFLAS O-Rings are Not Recommended for :
AFLAS O-Rings are highly resistant to a wide range of chemicals but are not recommended to be used with Ketones (MEK), Auto/Aircraft Brake Fluids, Acetone, Skydrol, Ethyl Acetate, Low Molecular Esters and Ethers.
