An O-ring is a solid-rubber seal shaped like a doughnut or torus. When compressed between mating surfaces, O-ring blocks the passage of liquids or gases. O-rings are available in a wide range of standard and non-standard sizes that are suitable for nearly all sealing applications.
We, at AS&P focus on long-term relationships based on trust, honesty, and communication. Whether you need specialized O-Ring seals or off-the-shelf standard O-Ring seals, we have them all at great prices.
FPM O-Rings Description
FPM or fluorocarbon rubber is an elastomer based on fluoro-rubber which can be used for U-cups, lip seals, packings, wipers, and special seals. It has a lot of outstanding properties like high resistance to heat, ozone, many chemicals and it is all-weather-proof. FPM is compatible with mineral oils and greases containing sulphur, HFD pressure fluids (nearly all phosphate esters and chlorinated hydrocarbons), crude oil and sour gas. FPM is not resistant to anhydrous ammonia, amines, ketones, esters, hot water, and low molecular weight organic acids.
FPM combines high-temperature resistance with excellent chemical resistance and is excellent for use with alcohol and aromatic fuels and highly resistant to ultraviolet light and ozone. This material is not recommended for use in low temperatures or in aircraft hydraulic fluids.
We help you find the best elastomer FPM compound that meets all your needs in order to achieve maximum performance. We select the compound that suits your application based on your requirements.
