Parker VX065-75 and VX165-90 O-Rings Deliver Extreme Low Temperature Performance


 

Parker’s VX065-75 and VX165-90 are FKM O-rings known for extreme low temperature performance in industrial applications that require -65° sealing capability. While VX065-75 is particularly advantageous in the aerospace industry, and VX165-90 meets the demands of the oil and gas industry, both are characterized by notable compression set and chemical resistance common to fluorocarbons.

Zatkoff is pleased to introduce these innovative products into our current FKM compound lineup. In partnering with Parker to consistently deliver sealing solutions across industries, we proudly offer reliable, long-term access to best-in-class performance.

Parker VX065-75 O-Ring

Parker VX065-75

Parker VX065-75 is distinguished by its equally impressive performance in both low and high temperature conditions. VX065 provides an extended sealing life thanks to its incredible physical properties. Rivaling the low temperature flexibility of a fluorosilicone, VX065 performs extraordinarily well at high altitudes and during engine startup. With a wide temperature range of -65°F to 400°F, VX065 offers excellent performance qualities in meeting aerospace industry demands.

As seen here, VX065-75 possesses elastomer properties that allow it to outperform other types of fluorosilicone, GLT, and A-type FKM compounds in HTS oil compatibility, toughness, fuel compatibility, low temperature resilience, and compression set resistance.
