Gallagher Fluid Seals recently posted our new Fluoroelastomer Basics webinar on gallagherseals.com. This is the third and final section of our webinar, focusing on Considerations When Choosing a Fluoroelastomer. The full video is now available on our Resources page.
This video discusses considerations when choosing a fluoroelastomer, including temperature performance range, performance in harsh chemical exposure, and the need to take caution when using fluoroelastomer blends.
Gallagher Fluid Seals recently posted our new Fluoroelastomer Basics webinar on gallagherseals.com. This is the second section of our webinar, focusing on Fluoroelastomer Materials. The full video is now available on our Resources page.
This section of the video discusses different fluoroelastomer materials, along with their mechanical and physical properties, and in which applications they’re normally found.
Gallagher Fluid Seals recently made our Fluoroelastomer Basics webinar available on the website.
This webinar will discuss:
- Differences between an elastomer and a fluoroelastomer
- The important role fluorine plays
- Types of fluoroelastomers and their features and benefits
- Material performance comparisons
- Chemical resistance of fluoroelastomers
- Temperature ratings of fluoroelastomers
- Considerations when choosing the right fluoroelastomer for your application
What is an Elastomer?
An elastomer is made up of long chain polymers which are connected by crosslinks. Crosslinks are analogous to springs and provide an “elastic” (recovery) nature to the material. The crosslinks are relatively stable, but can break down under extreme temperatures and pressures.
