PA has execllent resistance to petroleum fluids and oils, diesel oils, and automatic transmission and power steering fluids. It has outstanding resistance to oxidation, ozone and sunlight with minimal cracking due to heat. Frequently referred to as 'high temperature Nitrile', PA operates very well in temps of 300° F to 350° F in hot oil service. Compression set and water resistance are poorer as compared to NBR.
Temperature range: 0° F to 350° F (-18° C to 177° C)
