Improved Chemical Resistance

The technology portfolio for improved chemical resistance offers rubber compounds especially designed to resist to most of the alkaline solutions specified in the chemical and process industry as well as in the latest gear lubricants, engine oil, bio-carburant and blow-by gases.

FKM/FPM: fluorocarbons are high temperature oil/fluid resistant elastomers capable of providing a very wide chemical compatibility range. The basis of the different compounds is the incorporation of fluorine into the polymer chain, as you increase the fluorine concentration within the polymer, the greater the chemical resistance of the compound. Special grades deliver optimum base, sour gas/hydrogen sulfur resistance.
