TECNOFLON® P 459 is a low viscosity, high fluorine (70%), peroxide curable fluoroelastomer. Tecnoflon® P 459 exhibits superior resistance to a wide variety of chemicals, coupled with excellent processability and optimum compression set. Tecnoflon® P 459 can be cross-linked using organic peroxides in conjunction with a co-agent. Tecnoflon® P 459 is a lower viscosity version of Tecnoflon® P 959: please refer to Tecnoflon® P 959 Technical data sheet for data on chemical resistance.
Some of the basic properties of TECNOFLON® P 459 are:
- Low post cure
- Superior mold flow
- Lack of mold fouling
- Excellent mold release
- Good chemical resistance especially in:
-- Alcohol containing fuels
-- Fluids containing amine additives
Tecnoflon® P 459 can be used for injection and transfer molding of shaft seals, valve seals, Orings, gaskets or any item requiring superior chemical resistance.
Tecnoflon® P 459 can be combined with the cure system and other typical fluoroelastomer compounding ingredients. Mixing can be accomplished with two-roll mills or internal mixers. Finished goods may be produced by a variety of rubber processing methods. This material can be extruded into hoses or profiles and can be calendered to make sheet stocks or belting.
