TECNOFLON® TN 50A is a medium-low viscosity fluoroelastomer terpolymer. It does not contain curatives, therefore the proper levels of Tecnoflon® FOR M1 and Tecnoflon® FOR M2 must be added to achieve required properties. Thanks to its 68% of fluorine content, a good compromise between chemical resistance and compression set value is obtained. The careful distribution of molecular weights and medium-low viscosity maximize its performance in applications such as injection molding or extrusion where rheological properties are critical.
Some of the basic properties of Tecnoflon® TN 50A are:
- Very good mold flow
- Superior mold release
- Good compression set
- Good extrusion behavior
Tecnoflon® TN 50A can be used for compression, injection and transfer molding of shaft seals, valve stem seals, O-rings, gaskets and seals. This material can be combined with the cure system and other typical fluoroelastomer compounding ingredients. Mixing can be accomplished with two-roll mills or internal mixers.
Tecnoflon® TN 50A can be extruded into hoses or profiles and can be calendered to make sheet stocks or belting. Finished goods can be produced by a variety of rubber processing methods.
