QPL approval for fluorosilicone rubber from Simrit

The material is manufactured at the company's Santa Ana, CA, USA, facility for use in high-pressure jet fuel systems and is resistant to jet fuels and synthetic turbine lubricants with a typical application temperature range from - 70 °C to 200 °C. F273 is said to be ideal for use in O-rings, moulded shapes, and plate seals in fuel controls, as well as valves and pumps on commercial aircraft engine applications. Simrit, part of Freuden­berg-NOK Sealing Technologies, is the first and currently the only company approved by the Society of Aerospace Engineers and the Performance Review Institute (PRI) to manufacture the AMS7273-approved material on the QPL. The QPL is a listing of manufacturers who have received a PRI product qualification approval letter to a precise standard for specific product designations and plant locations. According to PRI, users - such as OEMs, the government, and airlines - benefit from the QPL as it reduces unnecessary testing and qualification processes, while maximising resources and competitiveness.
