Epichlorohydrin

Trade Name(s):
HydrinZeon
ASTM D1418 Designation:CO, ECO
Standard Colour:Black
Description:

Available in homopolymer (CO), copolymer (ECO), and terpolymer (GECO) formats, Epichlorohydrins are oil resistant compounds.

Key Use(s):

Ideal for fuel and air conditioning system components. Used in the petroleum industry where a little higher temperature capability than NBR is required.

Temperature Range:
Standard Compound:-40°C (-40°F) to 135°C (275°F)
Hardness (Shore A):50 to 80
Features:


Epichlorohydrin features excellent resistance to hydrocarbon oils and fuels; low solvent and gas permeability; excellent resistance to ozone and weathering; and stable cycling from low to high temperature. Good replacement to butyl when gas permeability and oil resistance are needed.

Limitations:

Compression set is only “fair” at elevated temperatures (250°F to 275°F). Epichlorohydrin is attacked by ketones; esters; aldehydes; chlorinated and nitro hydrocarbons; and is not recommended for exposure to brake fluids.
