  • Booth: 4079


Welcome to OTC 2017!

AGC Chemicals is a leading global supplier of high performance fluoroproducts used in demanding oil and gas recovery applications. This year at booth 4079 we are introducing AFLAS® 600X fluoroelastomers, which improve processing efficiency and performance of hardworking equipment components in oil and gas recovery applications.


 Press Releases

  • EXTON, Pa., March 15, 2017 – AGC Chemicals Americas Inc. will introduce its AFLAS® 600X fluoroelastomer grade at the Offshore Technology Conference May 1‒4 in Houston, Texas, at Booth 4079.  AFLAS 600X is a tetrafluoroethylene propylene (FEPM) material that offers performance and processing advantages over BRE, FKMs and other AFLAS grades, making it ideal for molded products like durable packers, bladders, gaskets and O-rings.

    Products made of AFLAS 600X last longer in the wet, high-pressure, amine- and base-rich environments of oil and gas recovery, and they do not deteriorate under prolonged exposure at 230 °C.  In addition, the parts exhibit excellent electrical and thermal resistance.

    AFLAS 600X also exhibits processing advantages over conventional FKMs and other AFLAS grades including superior mold release, higher cross-linking ability, superior hot tear strength and compression set, and a faster cure speed (4-10 hour post cure). AFLAS 600X does not require specific peroxides and is a white polymer material that can be easily colored.

    Additional AFLAS Fluoroelastomers for Oil and Gas Applications

    In addition to introducing AFLAS 600X, AGC will also feature AFLAS PM-3000, pre-compounds and AFLAS 200P at OTC 2017.

    AFLAS® PM-3000 exceeds the performance characteristics of the FKM and HNBR families of elastomers now commonly used in many oil and gas industry applications. Components made from AFLAS PM-3000 peroxide-curable perfluoroelastomers (FFKMs) provide superior resistance to the high temperatures, pressures and aggressive and multi-phase chemicals used in oil and gas recovery. AFLAS PM-3000 imparts a continuous service temperature of 250 °C, with peak exposure to 270 °C.

    AFLAS CP-4000 is a new peroxide-curable perfluoroelastomer pre-compound in the AFLAS FFKM series that offers outstanding resistance to chemicals, oils, solvents and extreme heat. It also provides exceptional compression set, mechanical strength, processability and high resistance to rapid gas decompression. It has a service temperature of 280 °C, with peak exposure of 300 °C.

    AFLAS CB-046, based on AFLAS CP-4000, is a peroxide-curable FFKM formulated pre-compound that does not require any additional filler. It offers the same superior material features and end-user benefits as CP-4000, including service temperature at 280 °C, with peak exposure of 300 °C.

    AFLAS CB-047 is based on AFLAS PM-3000 and provides medium temperature rating from 260 °C up to 280 °C.  Along with CB-046, it has chemical resistance to hydrocarbons, various oils and amines, acids and alkalis, and other caustic fluids with very low swell even in longer-term exposures.

    AFLAS 200P, a peroxide-curable specialty FKM, performs better than conventional FKM-type fluoroelastomers and improves cold-temperature performance, which is important because exposure to cold air temperatures can potentially cause hardening, cracking and failure and fluid leakage from a gasket or O-ring.

  • AFLAS® FFKM Pre-Compounds
    AFLAS® CP-4000, AFLAS CB-046 and CB-047 are new peroxide-curable pre-compounds in the AFLAS FFKM series. They are used to fabricate oilfield equipment components that are resistant to chemicals, oils, solvents and extreme heat....

  • AGC Chemicals Americas introduces pre-compounds CP-4000, CB-046 and CB-047 in the AFLAS FFKM series for the fabrication of oilfield equipment components.

    AFLAS CP-4000 is a peroxide-curable perfluoroelastomer that offers outstanding resistance to chemicals, oils, solvents and extreme heat. It also provides exceptional compression set, mechanical strength and processability. It can be compounded to be highly resistant to rapid gas decompression and has a service temperature of 280 °C, with peak exposure of 300+ °C. AFLAS CP-4000 is post-cured using nitrogen instead of air to achieve high temperature resistance and to optimize performance.

    Based on AFLAS CP-4000, AFLAS CB-046 is a peroxide-curable FFKM pre-compound that does not require any additional filler. It offers the same superior material features and end-user benefits as CP-4000, including service temperature at 280 °C, with peak exposure of 300 °C. CB-047 is based on PM-1100 and can withstand mid-temperature exposure up to 280 °C.
