AFLAS® (AGC CHEMICALS)

DESCRIPTION
Aflas® or TFE/P is a member of a recent generation of fluoroelastomers compounded especially to provide unique properties for specific applications. The primary uses for Aflas® are in oil/gas, chemical processing, pharmaceutical and automotive industries. Aflas® can be crosslinked (cured) using a variety of systems, but generally peroxides are used to provide the best all around environmental resistance.
