fluoroelastomer

MAXMOLD® FK1 FDA is a medium high viscosity fluoroelastomer copolymer. MAXMOLD® FK1 FDA is intended as a general purpose fluoroelastomer. It can be blended with other polymers of the MAXMOLD® family to meet specific requirements. MAXMOLD® FK1 FDA does not contain curatives: therefore the proper levels of MAXMOLD® FOR M1 and MAXMOLD® FOR M2 must be added to achieve the required properties.

Some of the basic properties of MAXMOLD® FK1 FDA are:

l  Excellent compression set

l  Lack of mold fouling

l  Superior extrusion behavior

l  Superior mold flow

l  Excellent mold release

l  Compliant to FDA 21, CFR 177.2600

MAXMOLD® FK1 FDA can be used for compression molding of O-rings, seals, gaskets, and other items. The product can be mixed using typical fluoroelastomers compounding ingredients and mixing can be accomplished with two-roll or internal mixers. The material can be extruded into hoses or profiles and can be calendered to make sheet stocks or belting. Compounds based on MAXMOLD® FK1 FDA can be dispersed in solvents for coating applications. Finished goods can be produced by a variety of rubber processing methods.
