Product Description

Our fluorosilicone sheets offer superior resistance to many different fuels, oils, solvents as well as chemicals, giving you protection in a variety of applications. This product is available with a width of 915mm in continuous metre lengths. We can also supply a variety of thicknesses from 0.5mm – 3.2mm. This ensures that you always get the perfect product to match your requirements.

Standard silicone offers good resistance to a variety of solutions, however it will quickly deteriorate when used in fuel contact applications. Our fluorosilicone sheets use a modified silicone rubber which has been fluorinated which essentially “caps off” the polymer chains. This greatly increases the chemical resistance and improves use in applications where fuels, coolants and oils may be present.

Aside from offering superior chemical resistance, our fluorosilicone sheets also offer many of the useful features found in standard silicone. It provides a wide function temperature range, from -53°C to +260°C. Fluorosilicone is also inherently resistant to weathering, UV and Ozone damage.

This material conforms to: MIL-R-25988 Type 2 Class 1 GR60, MIL-DTL-25988 as well as AMS 3325.
