The Advantages of Replacing Traditional FKM and FFKM Rubber-to-Metal Seals with AFLAS® Fluoroelastomers

FKM is the ASTM designation for a class of fluorinated, carbon-based synthetic rubber, commonly known as fluoroelastomers, which were introduced in the 1950s. FKMs exhibit impressive heat resistance as well as resistance to high pressures, chemicals and other fuels. These performance qualities made them an ideal material for high-performance seals, O-rings and gaskets used in […]

Using PTFE Micropowders to Manufacture Thermoplastic Parts that are as Non-stick as a Frying Pan

The very same chemicals that keep foods from sticking to frying pans can be used to enhance any thermoplastic part or component. Thermoplastic resins made with powerful polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) micropowders provide excellent non-stick properties.  The Power of PTFE PTFE micropowders are synthetic fluoropolymers that act as lubricants in thermoplastic base resins to improve their surface […]

AFLAS® Fluoroelastomer Pre-Compounds Enhance Performance of Parts Used in Harsh Oil Recovery Conditions

Productivity and safety in oil and gas recovery operations depend on the strength of equipment, parts and systems. Downtime or injuries from equipment failure are unacceptable, so machinery must be built with parts and components that will not fail in these harsh environments. Hardworking oilfield equipment parts include durable packers, bladders, seals, gaskets and O-rings. […]
