EXTON, Pa., February 28, 2020 – AFLAS® FEPM fluoroelastomer lamination technology for multilayer automotive hose constructions is ideal for use in high-pressure, high-temperature areas near the engine, where they are also exposed to NOx, SOx, engine oils or other aggressive automotive fluids. AGC Chemicals Americas will feature AFLAS at the ITB Automotive Energy Storage Systems Conference, March 4-5 in Novi, Michigan.
AFLAS FEPM fluoroelastomers can withstand continuous service temperatures up to 200 °C and have excellent acid, base, amine and steam resistance. This new FEPM material can be laminated directly to dissimilar elastomers, without the need for a tie-layer or adhesive, to achieve a peel strength in excess of 7 N/in at elevated operating temperatures.
AGC also will feature the following materials that are designed to improve the performance of fuel system components like tanks, seals, vapor lines, hoses, tubes, cabling, as well as under-the-hood components for HVAC, evaporative emission control (EVAP), exhaust and coolant systems.
