perfluoroelastomer

MAXMOLD® PF587 is a perfluoroelastomer (FFKM) offering wide operational range and superior compression set resistance, thanks to its unique peroxide curing system that does not need any co-agent (TAIC or equivalent) for curing to be carried out. Thanks to its curing system, it can offer a very broad chemical resistance in a wide variety of media including acids, caustics, ketones, aldehydes, esters, ethers, methanol, solvents, sour gases, hydrocarbons, steam, hot water, and mixed process streams along with excellent thermal resistance.

MAXMOLD® PF587 is suitable for most application in temperature ranging from -10°C~300°C.

MAXMOLD® PF587 can be combined with other typical fluoroelastomer compounding ingredients; its mixing can be accomplished with two-roll mills or internal mixers. Finished goods may be produced by a variety of rubber processing methods. The primary use for MAXMOLD® PF587 is the manufacturing of any kind elastomeric sealing element such as o-rings, gaskets, valve bodies, butterfly valves, pump housing and stators, metal bonded parts, diaphragms, profiles, etc. These sealing elements can be used in mechanical seals, pumps, compressors, valves, reactors, mixers, sprayers, dispensers, quick connect couplings, controls, instrumentation, etc. in chemical and petrochemical industry, hydrocarbon processing, petroleum exploration and extraction, food processing, pharmaceutical and bio-analytical industry, aerospace and semiconductor manufacturing industries.

MAXMOLD® PF587 is registered in the FDA Inventory of Effective Premarket Notifications for Food Contact Substances. It can be compounded so that the finished gaskets or seals can be used in food processing equipments (see “food processing compounds” section below).
