Fluorolon 1096 is a general- purpose material made for contact with shafts and housings; it is made for 300 series stainless steel. aluminum and other soft metallic or plastic materials. Fluorolon 1096 material has low abrasion resistance to mating parts. The material/s high PV (pressure-velocity) values make it suitable for sealing most media, including liquid, moisture, and gases, at high speeds and low pressures. Fluorolon 1096 is recommended for general service applications and may be used in food contact applications at temperatures from 1320 to +475° F ( – 196 °C to 246 °C ).
Fluorolon 1096 has excellent chemical compatibility. The material is compatible with most fluids and gases, but it is not recommended for use with sulfuric and nitric acids, alkali metals, chlorine fluoride, lithium, potassium and sodium at high temperatures.
Fluorolon 1096 is “ FDA compliant” for use in food contact.
The mechanical properties of ALLOY 1055 at ambient temperatures are:
Tensile Strength ASTM D638 2100 psi ( 148 kg/cm2)
Elongation ASTM D638 180%
Service Temperature Range ( F)
1200 to 350
Advantages of Flurolon 1096
– Low abrasion to soft materials
– High PV values in most liquid and air applications
– Material maintains its properties at high speeds
