Tecnoflon® PL 458 exhibits both excellent low temperature flexibility (TR10 = -24°C) and outstanding resistance to a variety of chemicals. Like all other Tecnoflon® peroxide curable grades, it exhibits excellent processability; moreover it needs very short post-curing cycles. Some of the basic properties of Tecnoflon® PL 458 are: - Excellent low temperature flexibility - Low volume swell in methanol-based fuels - Low post cure - Superior mould flow - Lack of mould fouling - Excellent mould release Tecnoflon® PL 458 can be used for injection, compression and transfer molding of O-rings, gaskets and seals. Tecnoflon® PL 458 can be combined with the cure system and other typical fluoroelastomer compounding ingredients. Mixing can be accomplished with two-roll mills or internal mixers. This material can be extruded into hoses or profiles and can be calendered to make sheet stocks or belting. Finished goods may be produced by a variety of rubber processing methods.
