SSP Fluorosilicones: Advantages, Applications, Types, and Specs

Fluorosilicones are silicone-based elastomers that contain fluorine additions for improved oil and fuel resistance. Like other silicone compounds, they exhibit excellent stability over a wide range of temperatures, typically from -60° C to +200° C. Fluorosilicones also provide good compression set and resilience, and can withstand ultraviolet (UV) light, ozone, and chlorinated and aromatic hydrocarbons. Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) supplies a complete line of fluorosilicones in a [...]
