Parker EM163-80 O-rings
Meeting aircraft system sealing challenges
A new EM163-80 80 durometer black EPDM compound from Parker OES is a terpolymer of ethylene and propylene with a diene third monomer used for cross linking which is particularly useful for sealing phosphate-ester hydraulic fluids and in glycol based fluid brake systems in aircraft system applications.
Temperature range: -80°F to 250°F (-62°C to 121°C), Certifications include: NAS 1613 Rev 6, color: black
