What aerospace rubber mouldings can TRP offer?

All of our aerospace seals have been crafted to meet specific aerospace applications. Our aircraft rubber components are manufactured to improve performance and reliability whilst lowering overall maintenance costs. When it comes to aerospace applications, we only select high-performance polymers, so you can rely on us to provide you with a seal that maintains its integrity, even in the most demanding conditions. Thanks to our years of experience in designing products to meet specific or extreme environments, we are certain that we can manufacture aerospace industry rubber seals that are built to last in such extreme environments.

There are many instances in which TRP have supplied rubber products specific to the aerospace industry. TRP Polymer Solutions is a leading manufacturer of aerospace rubber products and have supplied a range of products to this industry, including:

• Aerospace seals
• Aircraft piston rings
• Seal rings for aircraft engines

We have worked closely with our in-house engineers to ensure that any products we provide to the aerospace industry meet the required specification. Our aerospace industry rubber seals offer a safe and durable solution for the aerospace industry.

Aircraft rubber seal materials

Three of the primary materials we recommend using for rubber products for the aerospace industry include fluorosilicone (FMVQ), FKM and TRPlast perfluoroealstomer.

Fluorosilicone (FMVQ) for aerospace industry rubber products

Fluorosilicone (FVMQ) is an elastomer made up from a silicone polymer chain with fluorinated side-chains. This structure provides the elastomer with a number of qualities that make it the perfect choice of material for the aviation industry.

The beauty in using fluorosilicone elastomers is that they can meet industry needs in terms of reliability and durability in particularly challenging settings. FVMQ elastomers are ideal for delivering suitable, sustainable and innovative aerospace solutions. These seals in particular are perfect for aviation applications, as this elastomer’s compound combines attributes of silicone with a high level of resistance to petroleum oils and hydrocarbon fuels.

These aerospace industry rubber seals offer an excellent ozone resistance, sunlight and weathering resistance, making it ideal for aerospace applications.

FKM & TRPlast perfluoroelastomer for aerospace rubber products

Our material selection for aerospace applications also includes FKM, as well as our TRPlast Perfluroroelastomer material. Both of these materials are recommended for use with turbine engines, fuel delivery systems, hydraulic actuation, braking and landing gear. FKM and FFKM O-Ring compounds offer resistance to the most aggressive fuels, oils and hydraulic fluids, often used within commercial aerospace sectors.
