Rings, Sealing, Fluorocarbon (Fkm) Rubber High-Temperature-Fluid Resistant Low Compression Set 70 to 80
- Aerospace Material Specification
This specification covers a fluorocabron (FKM) rubber in the form of O-rings, compression seals, O-ring cord and molded in place gaskets.
These rings have been used typically as sealing rings, compression seals, O-ring cord and molded-in-place gaskets in contact with air or a variety of fuels, lubricants and specific hydraulic fluids from -29 to +260 degrees C (-20 to +500 degrees F), but usage is not limited to such applications. Each application however should be considered individually. This class of fluoroelastomers is not recommended for use in high temperature stabized, "HTS", engine oils. Each "HTS" oil should be evaluated separately.

Welcome to the AMS-CE Elastomers Committee Discussion Forum.The AMS-CE Elastomers Committee maintains Aerospace Materials Specifications (AMS), Aerospace Recommended Practices (ARP), Aerospace Information Reports (AIR) and Aerospace Standards (AS) on elastomeric materials. AMS-CE, which reports to the Aerospace Materials Division, coordinates and maintains liaison with industry, government and other standardization groups on elastomeric materials. A significant part of this committee is concerned with elastomeric fluid sealing materials, their applications, material development, testing, quality, design parameters and design practices.
