Tecnoflon® FKM & PFR FFKM
Designed for demanding sealing applications in aggressive chemical and high heat environments
The Tecnoflon® family of Fluoroelastomers and Perfluoroelastomers is renowned for its unmatched operational temperature range, chemical resistance, and reliable performance in the most demanding of environments. Unlike traditional elastomeric materials, which are based on Carbon-Hydrogen or Silicon-Oxygen bonds, Tecnoflon® fluoroelastomers derive their uniquely superior properties from strength of the Carbon-Fluorine bond.
Tecnoflon® FKM (fluoroelastomers) and PFR FFKM (perfluoroelastomers) are designed for demanding sealing applications in aggressive chemical and high heat environments such as those found in the Automotive, Aerospace, Oil & Gas, and Energy markets and where high purity, and long service life are essential.
They are compatible with a wide range of fluids and chemicals including automotive lubricants, fuels, and additives. Typical end use products include O-rings, seals, gaskets, and complex molded parts.
Tecnoflon® PFR FFKM
Tecnoflon® PFR FFKM perfluoroelastomers show the ultimate performance among all elastomers. They are resistant to nearly every chemical class with some grades offering heat resistance over 300°C, making Tecnoflon® PFR the material of choice for high demanding sealing applications. Market specific grades have been specially developed to answer the stringent requirements of the semiconductor, oil & gas and chemical processing industries.
Tecnoflon® FKM Base Resistant
Tecnoflon® FKM Base Resistant grades are a special class of peroxide curable grades, designed with improved chemical resistance in Oil & Gas applications with high sour gas concentration, steam, lubricants with amine-based anti-corrosion additives and the latest aggressive automotive gear and axle lubricants.
Tecnoflon® FKM Ionic Curable
Tecnoflon® FKM Ionic Curable grades are copolymers and terpolymers with a fluorine content range from 66% to 70% and are well suited for automotive, industrial and aerospace applications. The HS copolymers are designed for low post-cure cycles and cure-incorporated and rubber-to-metal bonding grades are available for all molding techniques.
Tecnoflon® FKM Peroxide Curable
Tecnoflon® FKM Peroxide Curable grades are the best-in-class chemical resistance grades with a fluorine content range from 67% to 70%. They are designed to produce O-rings, shaft-seals, turbo charger hoses and complex shapes for the automotive and chemical process industry. The peroxide curable grades show excellent processability by injection or compression molding.
Tecnoflon® FKM Peroxide Curable for Low Temperature
Tecnoflon® FKM Low Temperature grades are a wide portfolio including ionic and peroxide curable grades with TR10 range from -19°C to -40°C. They are specially designed for sealing solutions in oil drilling in cold environment as well as in the latest automotive engine technologies, like LPG, CNG and high-performance fuel injection systems.
The VPL Peroxide Curable grades are able to withstand the most stringent specifications for automotive and oil field applications, with TR10 down to -40°C and superior chemical resistance compared to standard low temperature FKM.
