Tecnoflon® Fluorocarbon Rubber (FKM) is characterized by excellent chemical resistance to a large number of different media such as fuels, lubricants, oils, solvents and chemicals. In addition to outstanding thermal resistance at temperatures above 200 °C, they demonstrate a very good long-term sealing effect. Special types for use at temperatures down to – 40°C are also available.
Due to its specific properties, Tecnoflon® FKM is commonly used in seals and hoses and is deployed predominantly in the automotive industry. It can be used, to name a few examples, in O-ring seals for fuel lines or injection systems, in shaft seals as well as in fuel or charge air hoses. Thanks to the combination of excellent properties, it is also frequently used in the chemical industry, in aerospace applications and in the oil and gas industry.
The Tecnoflon® FKM portfolio contains a wide range of bisphenolic and peroxide cross-linkable polymers with different fluorine contents and Mooney viscosities. The products are processable by all common methods like injection molding, compression molding, extrusion or calendaring.
