Boisbriand, Quebec, Canada (PRWEB) May 31, 2015
Elasto Proxy, custom fabricator of specialty seals and custom insulation, is announcing resources for defense industry professionals who need assistance with military specifications for rubber gaskets. In an online article and video, the Canadian manufacturer describes key military standards for elastomeric gaskets and explains how these specifications can affect purchasing and manufacturing decisions.
MIL-R-900F and MIL-G-1149C
As Elasto Proxy’s article explains, MIL-R-900F is a performance specification for 45-durometer rubber used in gaskets for airtight and watertight enclosures over a temperature range of -20° to 130° F (-28.9° to 54.4° C). Rubber materials that meet MIL-R-900F requirements are vulcanized, ozone resistant, and tested according to ASTM standards for accelerated cracking.
MIL-G-1149C is another military specification for gasket rubber, but one that covers vulcanized synthetic elastomers with a nominal hardness of 50 or 65 durometer. Like MIL-R-900F, the MIL-G-1149C standard defines physical properties along with aging and fluid-immersion requirements, allowable form factors, and tolerances for cuts and splices.
