Original Press Release:

Zatkoff Solutions in New Low Temperature FluoroElastomer from Parker Offer you Stronger Sealing Results

At Zatkoff Seals and Packings we get excited when we can offer new, cutting edge and more effective solutions to our customers. That’s why we’re so excited that we can now offer our customers products created with Compound V1289-75 from Parker.

Low temperature performance has long been the Achilles’ heel of fluorocarbon elastomer technology.

However, V1289-75 is a new low temperature (-40°C TR-10) fluorocarbon material, which offers superior low temp sealing properties. Compared to existing GLT - type fluorocarbons, V1289-75 has comparable fuel resistance and mechanical properties. In automotive, oil and gas and aerospace environments, this great new material has passed leakage testing requirements at -40°C.

Designed to have the best low temperature properties of any fluorocarbon rubber compound currently available, Compound V1289-75 exceeds all other fluorocarbon materials tested to date.

As rubber compounds approach their TR-10 temperature, they lose the ability to spring back. Compound V1289-75 continues to show excellent sealing force down to -40°C while A-type fluorocarbon materials lose sealing contact at around-18°C. It also shows a compatible level of methanol swell resistance as other compounds used in similar ways.

The benefits of products made with V1289-75 include better high temperature ratings than nitrile, and both better temperature ratings and better wear and tear resistance than fluorosilicone.

V1289-75 also has lower volume swell in fuels than fluorosilicone and nitrile, better compression set than nitrile, and NO dry-out shrinkage. It also boasts a low temperature rating better than AMS-R-83485 FKM and AMS 7276 FKM.

Due to these clear advantages, V1289-75 gives an improved performance as an alternative to other fluorocarbon materials for many applications.
