Fluorosilicones in the Aerospace Industry

Fluorosilicone’s advent into the commercial marketplace offers opportunities for manufacturers to pursue new applications for silicones in the automotive, aircraft and general markets. The unique properties of fluorosilicones provide a solution for products that need broad operating temperatures, fuel resistance and long-term reliability. Conventional dimethyl silicones cannot survive the harsh environments that fluorosilicones can endure. Similar to other silicones, fluorosilicones can be provided as high consistency rubbers (HCRs), liquid silicone rubbers (LSRs), dispersions, gels and even foams. Silicone manufacturers offer a variety of fluorosilicone solutions that fit the unique processes of any end-user. Whether fluorosilicones are used as adhesives, molded parts or protective coatings, flexibility of application is possible.
