FKM – Fluorocaoutchouc

Elastomer on the base of fluorocaoutchouc, more familiar as VITON®(DuPont). Many O-rings, lip seals and sleeves are made of FPM. It has a very good resistance to heat, chemicals, weather and ozone. Furthermore, it is resistant to sulphurated mineral oils and fats and to hardly inflammable HFD liquids (basis phosphor ester or chlorinated hydrocarbon). It is not resistant to anhydrous ammonia, caustic soda, potassium, ketones, ether, dioxane, as well as some amines and organic acids. For BOLA products, FPM is mainly used as sealing material, mostly protected from the medium by a PTFE sealing lip.
