Zatkoff Delivers Best in Class Compression Set in Aerospace Applications with Parker VM125-75

October 11, 2018


At Zatkoff, we are dedicated to consistently delivering elastomeric solutions for improved performance across a variety of applications. In line with this commitment, we are advancing sealing efficiency in the aerospace industry with Parker VM125-75. With a recommended temperature range of -40°F to 400°F, this incredible fluorocarbon elastomer offers high resiliency across a wide range of temperatures.

VM125-75 also adheres to the strict AMS 7287 specification, exhibiting outstanding compatibility with gas turbine engine lubricants, high thermo-oxidative stability (HTS) lubricants, and a variety of jet fuels. Parker VM125-75 provides best-in-class compression set resistance for low temperature sealing power, and thermal stability to withstand equally extreme high temperatures.

Fully compatible with all aerospace jet fuels and hydrocarbon-based hydraulic oils, VM125-75 provides full protection against leakage. This FKM compound notably enhances sealing functionality over typical “GLT” fluorocarbon elastomers — with distinction — at 392°F (200°C), as illustrated in the graph shown here.
