High-Performance Seals for Critical Applications
Tecnoflon® fluorelastomers and perfluorolastomers provide exceptional resistance to chemicals, acids, steam, hydrogen sulfide and flex fuels, making them ideal for the harsh environments found in Automotive, Oil & Gas, Energy and Semicon Industries.
Oil & Gas Downhole & Offshore E&P
The harsh environments of the Oil & Gas industry demand elastomers capable of extreme temperature and chemical resistance. The Tecnoflon® family of fluoroelastomers offers a variety of grades tough enough to withstand the rigors of downhole and subsea challenges.

Tecnoflon® PFR FFKM
The ultimate choice for chemical and thermal performance
Automotive Fuel Systems
Tecnoflon® fluoroelastomers offer resistance to the most aggressive fuel mixtures while providing excellent properties for the lowest permeation. Tecnoflon® FKM grades have been designed to cover a broad operating temperature range: -40°C to +250°C. Applications include O-rings, fuel line quick-connect seals, fuel sender unit seals, fuel host connectors and fuel cap seals.
Fuel Cell Stack Sealing
Tecnoflon® FKM is the ideal material for fuel cell stack sealing with high softness thanks to its outstanding properties:
- Extreme chemical resistance
- High temperature rating (up to 250°C) – a mandatory choice where conventional rubbers reach their limits (temperature over 100-120°C)
- Low gas permeability
Where necessary, high purity fluoroelastomers (organic filled) are also available.
