Tecnoflon® VPL 85540 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 in order to fulfil all customer's requirements. 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.
