RT DYGERT’S N-7003 COMPOUND GETS THE GREEN LIGHT FOR HFO-1234yf AUTOMOTIVE AIR CONDITIONING SEALS

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (MAY 15, 2017) RT Dygert proudly announces that their premium HNBR compound, N-7003, has undergone a thorough evaluation to confirm its compatibility with HFO-1234yf. HFO-1234yf (or R-1234yf) is the newest eco-friendly automotive refrigerant of choice by both European and American automakers to replace R-134a. N-7003 was tested in both R134a/PAG oil and HFO-1234yf/PAG oil mixtures with superlative results. It’s also been “test driven” with millions of O-Rings and custom molded parts already in the field, and has a 100% track record.

HFO-1234yf meets EU and EPA requirements, has a global warming potential of 4 (versus 1,430 for R-134a), and is POE and PAG oil miscible. It is an easy “drop-in” replacement that requires minimal A/C system changes. N-7003’s green color allows quick identification, and custom molding is available through RT Dygert.

RT DYGERT INTRODUCES NEW TECNOFLON® SOLVAY VPL-BASED FKM COMPOUNDS

SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE IN COLD ENVIRONMENTS; IMPROVED CHEMICAL RESISTANCE

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (DECEMBER 5, 2016) RT Dygert now offers two new Tecnoflon® VPL FKM compounds with exceptional new sealing properties:

  • F-7067: 75 durometer Solvay VPL 85540 based FKM (TR10 -40°C)
  • F-7068: 75 durometer Solvay VPL 85730 based FKM (TR10 -30°C)

Tecnoflon® VPL is a new series of low temperature peroxide-curable FKM grades, featuring the lowest cold temperature flexibility among all fluoroelastomers - with TR10 as low as -40ºC. It shows the lowest cold temperature flexibility; no loss of chemical resistance; and improved sealing and mechanical properties. VPL resists aggressive media like ethanol/fuel and methonol/fuel mixtures.

The unique combination of both low temperature and broad chemical resistance makes these sealing compounds ideal for demanding applications like the latest automotive engine technologies (including high performance fuel injection systems), chemical processing industries, oil drilling in excessively cold environments, aerospace, oil and gas energy markets, diesel injection, mechanical devices operating at elevated temperatures, and more.
