Fluorosilicones White Paper for Designers and Fabricators



Fluorosilicones White Paper for Designers and Fabricators

Design engineers and gasket fabricators like fluorosilicones because these elastomers combine the high and low temperature resistance of silicones with the fuel and oil resistance of fluorocarbons. Yet all fluorosilicone rubber isn’t the same.

Some materials meet general-purpose or application-specific sealing requirements. Others are filled with metal-coated particles for EMI shielding. If you need a fluorosilicone for your next sealing or shielding project, what’s the right type to select? In a new white paper, Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) explains. 

Fluorosilicone Selection Guidelines

In Fluorosilicones for Environmental Sealing and EMI Shielding, SSP examines what design engineers and gasket fabricators need to know about fluorosilicone selection. Topics covered include:

  • What Are Fluorosilicones?

  • Fluorosilicone Applications

  • How to Choose a Fluorosilicone Supplier

  • Environmental Sealing

  • Electrical Conductivity and EMI Shielding

SSP’s new white paper also examines specific military, aerospace, and automotive requirements for fluorosilicones. Click here to get your copy of this free white paper.

Meeting Sealing and Shielding Requirements

The Fluorosilicones for Environmental Sealing and EMI Shielding white paper also contains product specifications for all of SSP’s fluorosilicones. For example, if you need MIL-R-25988B or SAE AMS 3326 fluorosilicones for environmental sealing, you’ll find a table with callouts and specs.

SSP’s new white paper also contains detailed information about fluorosilicones for industrial sealing, and M83528 Type D fluorosilcones for environmental sealing and EMI shielding. As part of its full product line, SSP provides a M83528 Type D fluorosilicone with a Qualified Product Listing (QPL).

Do you need to select a fluorosilicone for your next environmental sealing or EMI shielding project? Do you need to meet military, aerospace, or automotive requirements? Are you looking for a general-purpose fluorosilicone instead?

Fluorosilicones are relatively expensive, so it’s important to choose the right product. By accounting for material costs, performance, and industry-specific requirements, you can select the best material for your application. To get started, download SSP’s new white paper.
