Sealing Applications

O-Rings and gaskets are used for static sealing in various parts of the aero engines. This includes the gearbox, air, oil and fuel systems.
Fluorocarbon (Viton/FKM) is commonly used in these applications as well as other derivatives of Viton/FKM such as Type GF.

Sealing technology has advanced substantially in order to meet the demands of new aero engines where extreme temperatures are encountered. In this respect, Perfluoroelastomers (FFKM) have been developed to suit these applications.
