Building on its elastomer technology in fluoro liquid silicone rubber (F-LSR), Dow Corning Corporation (Midland, MI) is introducing two new Silastic brand F-LSRs to expand design options and provide processing efficiency for fuel-resistant automotive components. The newest product offerings add 60 and 70 durometer hardness options to a growing family of fully and partially fluorinated liquid silicone rubbers - a portfolio whose size is unmatched by any other fluorosilicone elastomer supplier.
Reportedly meeting market needs for both performance and cost control, http://www.dowcorning.com/images/spacer.gifSilastic F-LSRs are said to combine the fuel, oil and solvent resistance of fluorosilicone rubber (FSR) with the processing benefits of liquid silicone rubber (LSR). This latest fluorosilicone elastomer technology from Dow Corning can help designers develop more durable components for withstanding severe operating environments and can help fabricators achieve manufacturing improvements with automated processing, reduced labor costs, shorter cycle times, energy savings and reduced scrap rates. Dow Corning is well-prepared to meet growing market needs with a full range of FSR and F-LSR products.
