Solvay Specialty Polymers Tecnoflon® VPL 85540 / VPL 55540 Fluoroelastomer
Categories: Polymer; Thermoset; Fluoropolymer, TS; Thermoset Fluoroelastomer

Material Notes: Tecnoflon® VPL 85540 and 55540 belong to a brand new generation of very low temperature peroxide curable FKM. They have been designed to offer outstanding low temperature flexibility (i.e. TR10 = -40°C). Like all other Tecnoflon® peroxide curable grades, they exhibit excellent processability and superior mechanical properties and sealing ability; moreover they need very short post curing cycles.

Some of the basic properties of Tecnoflon® VPL 85540 and 55540 are:
- Outstanding low temperature behavior
- Very good chemical resistance
- Low post cure
- Superior mold flow
- Lack of mold fouling
- Excellent mold release
- Very good chemical resistance

Solvay offers medium (VPL 85540) and low viscosity (VPL 55540) versions. Accordingly to the curing technology, Tecnoflon® VPL 85540 and VPL 55540 can be transformed by all the molding techniques, including injection, injection-compression, compression and transfer molding. Tecnoflon® VPL 85540 and 55540 can be used with all typical peroxide curing system and the other fluoroelastomer compounding ingredients. Mixing can be accomplished with two-roll mills or internal mixers.

This material can be extruded into hoses or profiles or can be calendered to make sheet stocks or belting.

Key Attributes: Chemical Resistant; Fast Cure; Good Flow; Good Heat Seal; Good Mold Release; Good Processability; Low Temperature Flexibility; Medium-low Viscosity

Applications: Belts/Belt Repair; Blending; Hose; Low Temperature Applications; Profiles; Sheet
