Chesterton is pleased to announce
AWC850, a new, differentiated thermoset polyurethane seal material designed for use in hydraulic systems using ethylene glycol fluids (HFC hydraulic fluids).
The International Organization for Standardization Classification has defined ISO HFC, or a waterglycol hydraulic fluid, as a fire-resistant hydraulic fluid consisting of water and glycol. Some hydraulic systems incorporate hydraulic fluid consisting of water and glycol as a fire retardant media (non-hydrocarbon based, nonflammable). Chesterton's high glycol-tolerant
AWC850 exclusive thermoset polyether urethane (EU) material is not only compatible in these fluids but offers superior abrasion resistance and enhanced sealing performance when compared to other elastomer-based seal materials.
