The increasing use of aggressive biodiesel and alcohol components in motor fuels is posing new challenges for companies that produce, blend, transport and dispense them.
Relative to other fuel components, biodiesel has unstable chemistry subject to degradation which is exacerbated by contamination as it moves along the distribution chain. The aggressive, contaminated fuel attacks hydrocarbon rubbers such as the nitrile rubbers that are widely used in hose, gaskets, seals and other parts of fuel-handling equipment.
Working with our compounders we are able to offer a range of high grade elastomers alongside a new series of recently developed ED compounds, which include both bisphenol and peroxide-cured FKM’s, FEPM (Aflas®), HNBR and FFKM.
These compounds have been formulated to give excellent basic physical properties, along with processing ability, and have also been tested to ISO 23936-2 for rapid gas decompression (RGD). This range of developed compounds would therefore be ideal candidates to take forward to gain NORSOK approvals.
