FPM SUITABLE FOR FOOD (FLORURATE)
FOOD SECTOR APPLICATION
HARDNESS: shore 65 ± 5
COLOR: SKY BLUE
The fields of use are numerous, some may be those food sectors in which influence factors which imply the characteristic resistance of the florurate, to heat and to chemical agents, combined with the Food safety of the product.
For example, food plants that undergo sanitization and disinfection processes with chemical agents.
With this compound we are able to realize from the classic O-rings to the more specific custom-made products.
On stock, in this material, you can find the joint seals DIN – JOINTS SEALS – 11851- THROTTLE VALVE JOINTS DN SEALS
RESISTENCE TO OILS, FATS AND CHEMICAL AGENTS
The performances of the Fluorurate in contact with fuels, oils, solvents and chemical agents are not equaled by any other types of syntethic rubber. Further It has an excelent resistance to lubricants, to the majority of mineral acids and to many aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, as carbon tetrahcloride, toluolo, benzol and xylol.
PROPERTIES AT LOWS TEMPERATURES
The fluorurate mixture in 2 mm thicked samples shows a range of hardness temperature (the modulus of rigidity is 700 Kg/cm2) from -10 to -15 °C, and a range of infrangibility temperature from -40 to 44 °C. In some uses, special articles for low working temperatures have given satisfactory results down to -50 °C.
RESISTANCE TO SUN LIGHT, TO ATMOSPHERIC AGENTS AND TO OZONE
The Fluoroelastomers had resisted for more than one year in ozone concentration of 10,000 elements in 100,000,000 elements of air, without any cracks. After a two years exposure to the sun in Florida, a fluorurate is still in in perfect condition.
RESISTENCE TO HEAT
The Fluoroelastomers have an extraordinary resistance to heat. The Fluorurate moulded items remain elastic forever in oven at 205 °C. They have experimented that this items remain elastic for more than
|4800 ore a 200 °C
|1000 ore a 260 °C
|3000 ore a 230 °C
|240 ore a 290 °C
|1440 ore a 250 °C
|48 ore a 320 °C
RESISTENCE TO FIRE
The Fluoroelastomers don’t conduct fire; they burn in contact with fire, but they burn out when they are taken away.
