Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) makes MIL-DTL-25988 fluorosilicones with a full certificate of analysis (COA) for each batch and with no extra testing fees or costs. Plus, SSP supplies these military and aerospace silicones in sheets, rolls, and ready-to-mold compounds with low minimum order quantities (MOQs). Several of SSP’s MIL-DTL-25988 fluorosilicones have independent testing reports from Akron Rubber Development Laboratory, Inc. (ARDL), and all of SSP’s MIL-DTL-25988 fluorosilicone elastomers come with a batch-specific COA that confirms compliance with this demanding standard.
Certificates of Analysis for MIL-DTL-25988 Fluorosilicones
SSP’s certificates of analysis (COAs) report the test results for a specific batch of materials. These documents don’t just confirm that our elastomers meet DoD’s MIL-DTL-25988 specification. Rather, our COAs provide the data from the quality testing that we perform at our Ballston Spa, New York (USA) facility. Because each batch of fluorosilicones is fully-certified, our ISO 9001:2015 company provides you with supply chain transparency and traceability. Each COA also contains the name of the SSP employee who performed the testing and the specific section of MIL-DTL-25988 that applies.
MIL-DTL-25988 is a U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) specification that covers oil- and fuel-resistant fluorosilicone elastomers for aeronautical and aerospace applications. It divides compliant fluorosilicones into different Types, Classes, and Grades. Type 1 is for O-rings and Type 2 is for molded parts (other than for compression seals) and for sheets, strips and extruded shapes. Class 1 materials are for general-purpose use. They are further divided into durometer-based Grades. MIL-DTL-25988 also includes Class 2 fluorosilicone elastomers for high-strength, general-purpose use.
MIL-DTL-25988 Fluorosilciones with Low Minimum Order Quantities
SSP supplies MIL-DTL-25988 fluorosilicones in different Types, Classes, and Grades. Because these elastomers are peroxide-cured, they are not inhibited by amines, tin compounds, latex, or urethanes. Plus, SSP post-bakes all of its materials to prevent bloom. The following table provides an overview of SSP’s MIL-DTL-25988 fluorosilicones and includes links to where you can find more information.

Importantly, SSP supplies MIL-DTL-25988 fluorosilicones in low minimum order quantities (MOQs) and with shorter lead times that you might expect. With our fast, efficient roll manufacturing process, we can make the equivalent of 600 15” x 20” sheets in about two to three weeks. Our MIL-DTL-25988 fluorosilicone elastomers can be pigmented to meet your application requirements, but the most popular colors produced are red, black, and blue.
