NuSil Technology LLC has released FS-3781, a customizable, fluorosilicone, high-consistency rubber (HCR) for applications requiring solvent resistance in the aircraft industry.
FS-3781 offers resistance against solvents such as hydrocarbons, jet fuel, kerosene, gas and diesel and has a broad operating temperature range, company officials said. The material offers the convenience of a long work time and does not require mixing or de-airing because it is a one-part pre-catalyzed silicone system. As an HCR, FS-3781 is ideal for calendering, extruding, and transfer and compression-molding parts such as gaskets, o-rings, stoppers and seals, officials add.
NuSil can incorporate functional fillers into FS-3781 to achieve electrical or thermal conductivity and is able to create custom-molded parts per customer specifications. In addition, NuSil has the capabilities to match PMS or Federal Color Standards.
