Fuel Resistance

    Excess swell in fuels can translate into reduced performance and/or seal life. Precix understands this and has developed a range of products that swell less and seal better. An example of this is our F86 GF-based High-Fluorine Fluorocarbon (second from the left on the below graph). The swell numbers exhibited by F86 are up to 33 times better than conventional fluorocarbons. Contact Precix Materials Engineering to learn more.


    Extensive research into Biodiesel and the effects of this growing fuel on fluorocarbon sealing compounds. More information and a complete report can be obtained by contacting our Materials Engineering director.
