SAFEFLEX

In 1996 we introduced Mason “SAFEFLEX”, the culmination of 20 years of application and research. Our first goal was to fight elastomer heat failures and the beginning of this attack was the change to EPDM throughout. We continued our study, however, and found that the published properties of EPDM tolerating intermittent operating temperatures as high as 350°F (176°C) can only be reached when the curing system (the chemicals that stabilize or vulcanize EPDM during curing) are tailored to this performance. Most common curing systems are sulphur based. In order to get to the best physicals, the curing agent must be peroxide. This method is more costly and slower acting than sulfur cures and slows down production. Therefore, peroxide is not commonly used. In SAFEFLEX the EPDM cover, liner and frictioning materials are all peroxide cured. This is the first reason we named the product “SAFEFLEX”.
