Fluorosilicone tube combine the high- and low-temperature with the resistance to oils and fuels, the. tubing made of fluorosilicone can also be exposed to petroleum-based oils or hydrocarbon-containing fuels.
Fluorosilicone FVMQ tubing offers excellent resistance to chemicals, fuel, oil and acid resistance and is the ideal choice in extreme operating environments. Our Fluorosilicone tube is available in a 60 Shore A hardness with wide range of colours to meet customer requirements with an operating temperature range of between – 60 and + 225 degrees Centigrade. Sevitsil can also manufacture in a 50% blend, to reduce costs which is quite suitable in some applications.
Silicone rubber is an elastomer composed of silicone(present in silica) together with carbon,oxygen and hydrogen.
IN 1930, JAMES FRANKLIN HYDE RAN THE FIRST RESEARCH TO PRODUCE COMMERCIAL SILICONES.
Silicon is an element which is present in silica (sand) while silicone rubber is manufactured by extracting silicon from silica and passing it through hydrocarbons. It's then mixed with the other chemicals to create silicone.
A silicone or polysiloxane is a polymer made up of siloxane (−R2Si−O−SiR2−, where R = organic group).
