Abstract:

An investigation was made of elastomeric polymers, with particular emphasis on their usefulness as seals at cryogenic temperatures. O-ring seals utilizing various flange configurations were extensively evaluated at temperatures between 76 and 300 deg K. A supporting program of property measurements includes thermal expansivities, shear and compression modulus, differential thermal analysis, and the force-temperature effects of prestressed elastomers.
