The paper summarizes the compounding and significant properties of KEL-F Elastomer as related to its potential application in the electrical industry. As a raw material it comes equipped with many excellent properties required of electrical insulation. These include high tensile strength, extensibility, tear strength, abrasion resistance, thermal stability, extremely low water absorption, and resistance to oxidants, and a variety of chemicals. It is hoped that these characteristics will assist the electrical industry in the design of specialized insulation to be used in those applications where a high strength rubber must withstand heat and corrosive chemicals. Such applications immediately foreseen are insulated wire and cable, sheath stock, tapes, potting compounds, and electrical connectors, grommets, and seals.
