Fluorotrel is an internally lubricated Polyester elastomer.  It is suitable for use to replace polyurethane for higher temperatures and hostile fluids.  Like Lubrithane, it has excellent strength and toughness.  It has very high modulus and may be more challenging to install. Fluorotrel has excellent chemical resistance.  It is suitable for use from –54°C to +135°C (-65°F up to +275°F) in most fluids and may be used in water or phosphate ester fluids (except Skydrol) up to +82°C (+180°F).  Consult factory for specific recommendations.  F-1507 is the most commonly recommended grade at 50 shore D hardness.  It is suitable for use in standard rod seal, type b rod seal, lip seal, Z seal base and wiper applications.  F-1507 has an intermittent application temperature range of –54°C to +149°C (–65°F to +300°F).
