MIL-DTL-25988 Fluorosilicone Case Study

MIL-DTL-25988 fluorosilicone gaskets are used in aerospace applications that require proven resistance to jet fuel and lubricating oils. They are fabricated from sheet or roll materials or produced from ready-to-mold compounds. Because these military-grade fluorosilicones are used in mission-critical applications, buyers want to know that the specific batch they receive meets the requirements of this important U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) specification.Yet not all suppliers offer a [...]

EMI O-Rings Case Study

EMI O-rings that are made of electrically conductive silicones combine reliable environmental sealing and broad temperature resistance with proven levels of shielding against electromagnetic interference (EMI). These donut-shaped gaskets can be cut and bonded from extruded cord stock or molded as a single piece instead. Molding requires tooling, however, and that adds costs and can extend project timelines.Bonded EMI O-rings can save time and money, but some gasket fabricators glue the ends [...]
