Fluoroelastomer (FKM) - High-performance elastomer with good chemical resistance
This thermoset rubber-like elastomer has strong carbon-fluorine bonds that give it excellent resistance to many aggressive chemicals – including oils, fuels, and lubricants. The polymer can withstand temperatures up to around 200°C for prolonged periods and intermittent exposures up to 316°C. It also has very good resistance to sunlight and atmospheric oxidation.
It is used for O-rings, seals, and fuel hoses in aggressive-chemical and high-heat environments – such as those found in the automotive, aerospace, and oil and gas industries. Moulded components are used in dry-cleaning machines, chemical process equipment, and laboratory instruments.
Several grades of fluoroelastomer are available with different properties depending on the composition, fluorine content, and curing chemistry.
