Fluoroelastomers were first introduced to comply with strict aerospace industry requirements in the United States. This technological evolution called for better chemical compatibility, flexibility, temperature range, compression set, and improved aging characteristics. FKM is typically preferred for applications where heat is a factor. Considered by many as the biggest innovation in elastomer development in recent history; FKM continues to be an inventory staple. Credited with saving precious downtime and associated production loss and maintenance costs.
Ideal for automotive, mechanical devices, gas, chemical processing, mining, hydraulic systems, diggers, forestry, spring-loaded cylinders on vehicles, wind power, gearboxes, and high vacuum applications.
