Collaboration with aviation partner enables decades of innovation
Fluorosilicones are versatile, high-performance silicone materials formulated to resist mechanical failure caused by exposure to hydrocarbons, such as fuels and solvents. In addition, they remain flexible at extremely low temperatures and resist breakdown at very high temperatures.
The Avantor® NuSil® brand has been at the forefront of fluorosilicone formulation and innovation for decades. Working with our customers, we have helped address specific material performance and operational issues, improving materials for use in aircraft applications, including O-rings, gaskets, seals, coatings, gap fillers, adhesives, sealants and encapsulation solutions.
