Example text

Buna-N is a synthetic rubber. It can be used at sustained temperatures up to 80 °C without suffering permanent deformation under compression. It is available as sheet or in block form. It is useful as a gasket material and for vibration isolation. VitonA is a fluorocarbon elastomer similar in appearance and mechanical properties to Buna-N. Useful up to 250 °C, it tends to take a set at higher temperatures. Unlike Buna-N, Viton-A shows no tendency to absorb water or cleaning solvents. RTV, a self-curing silicone rubber produced by General Electric, comes in a semiliquid form and cures to a rubber by reaction with moisture in the air.

Welds in aluminum tend to be porous, and welding weakens the metal in the vicinity of the weld because of the rapid conduction of heat into the surrounding metal during the operation. Aluminum stock is produced in cast or wrought form. Wrought aluminum, produced by rolling, is used for most machine work. A four-digit number that indicates the composition of the alloy, followed by a suffix, beginning with T or H that specifies the state of heat treatment or work hardness, specifies aluminum alloys.

The carbon is in a free state in gray cast iron, while it is chemically incorporated into the structure of white cast iron. Gray iron is inexpensive and easy to machine. Class-30 gray iron has a Brinell hardness of about 200 BHN. It is, however, rather brittle and is only about half as strong as steel. White iron is stronger and harder than gray iron, and thus it is very wear-resistant. White iron is difficult to machine and is usually shaped by grinding. The machinability and ductility of cast irons can be considerably improved by various heat treatments.
