EXTON, PA – AGC Chemicals Americas Inc. and Zeon Chemicals, Louisville, KY, announced a distribution agreement for AGCCA’s AFLAS® fluoroelastomers. The partnership provides enhanced growth opportunities for both companies while increasing product offerings to current and potential customers in North America.

AFLAS fluoroelastomers are copolymers of tetrafluoroethylene and propylene, a combination that gives products unique properties over conventional FKM-type fluoroelastomers. This combination provides outstanding flexibility, toughness, and resistance to chemicals, heat and steam.

AFLAS products have been proven effective when formulated into items such as electrical submersible pump (ESP) bladders, packings, O-rings, engine seals and gaskets, sensor parts, and wire and cable coatings.
