40-Durometer Peroxide Cure Fluorosilicone
SSP-267 is a 40-durometer (Shore A) heat-cured fluorosilicone elastomer that uses a Varox-peroxide and dicumyl-peroxide catalyst system. This fluorosilicone compound meets the requirements of the MIL-DTL-25988C, Type 2, Class 1, Grade 40 specification. Because MIL-DTL-25988C rubber requires significant testing, there is a $500 minimum order amount. Small-quantity orders may be subject to certification charges.
MIL-DTL-25988C, Type 2, Class 1, Grade 40 Fluorosilicones
SSP-267 elastomers meet MIL-DTL-25988C, Type 2, Class 2, Grade 40 requirements for oil-resistant and fuel-resistant fluorosilicones. According to this U.S. military specification, Type 2 fluorosilicone elastomers are for molded parts (other than O-rings), sheets, strips, and extruded shapes. Class 1 fluorosilicones are general-purpose elastomers. Grade 40 indicates that the rubber has a nominal 40-durometer hardness.
Peroxide Cured Fluorosilicone Elastomers
SSP-267 fluorosilicone elastomers are peroxide-cured, a robust technique that is also cost-effective. Peroxide cure fluorosilicones are not inhibited by amines, tin compounds, latex, or urethanes, and SSP post-bakes all peroxide cured silicones to prevent bloom. SSP-267 fluorosilicones are used in aerospace and military applications, and combine broad temperature resistance with resistance to fuels, coolants, and oils.
Form Factors and Colors for Fluorosilicone Compounds
SSP-267 fluorosilicone elastomers are supplied as ready-to-mold compounds or compression-molded sheet stock. These fluorosilicone compounds can be pigmented to meet your application requirements, but the most popular colors produced are red, blue, and black.
