AGC Chemicals Americas to Feature Specialty FKM Fluoroelastomer at 2013 Chem Show

September 25, 2013

GC Chemicals Americas Inc. will be featuring its new peroxide-curable specialty FKM, AFLAS® 200P, in booth 451 at this year’s Chem Show. The event takes place December 10 to 12 at New York’s Javits Center.

AFLAS 200P performs better than conventional FKM-type fluoroelastomers for applications that need to withstand aggressive oils containing antioxidants, solvents, ozone, acids and bases. It is ideal for oil seals, shaft seals, O-rings, gaskets and a variety of other parts and fittings, including oil seals for automotive and heavy-duty diesel engines. AFLAS 200P can also be solvated and applied as a coating.

Classified as Type 4 FKMs by ASTM standards, AFLAS 200P fluoroelastomers offer improved performance at cold temperatures (Tg = -13 °C, TR-10 = -8 °C).

“This specialty FKM maintains good base resistance and offers improved performance at cold temperatures,” said Drew D’Agosta, AGC sales and marketing manager for AFLAS.
