Oz Seals announces the launch of its latest elastomer innovation, the Aflas Extreme TFE elastomer.
Based on Aflas by Asahi Glass Company, Aflas Extreme is a unique type of fluorinated rubber that combines superior strength with extreme chemical, temperature and electrical resistance. Formulated with an additional PTFE backbone into the structure, the Aflas Extreme is stronger than standard Aflas.
The high strength properties make Aflas Extreme the ideal material for use in chemical industries, refineries and foundries, even in extreme temperatures of up to 316°C. Aflas Extreme is also priced right, positioned just above Viton and offering a suitable solution as an affordable alternative to DuPont’s Kalrez.
Key advantages of Aflas Extreme elastomer include high resistance to a wide variety of chemicals, including hydraulic fluids, brake fluids, amine corrosion inhibitors, acids, bleaches, pulp and paper liquors, and alcohols; excellent abrasion resistance; and low compression set (70 hours at 316°C) of 18%, providing versatility to perform under any industry and application.
Processed under the chemical compounding department of Oz Seals, also known as Prinz Polymers, Aflas Extreme elastomer is readily available in the form of semi-finished billets, machined seals, O rings and gaskets.
