Fluorosilicones (or FVMQ) are a class of silicone rubber with fluorocarbon pendant groups. They have a greatly improved chemical resistance compared to standard silicone rubber. Fluorosilicones provide excellent resistance to fuel and oil in operating temperatures from −50 °F to +400 °F.
Fluorosilicone can be blended with various other silicones, fillers and curing agents to meet tough industry specifications.Request a Quote
Fluorosilicones are recommended in applications where improved chemical resistance is needed. These include:
- Connectors for cables and fuel pipes
- Seals and gaskets for fuel tanks
- Inner liners for turbo charger hoses for cars and trucks
O-rings, gaskets, seals and precision-molded parts for applications that resist swelling
We compound high-quality, ready-to-process fluorosilicones that can be compression or injection-molded, extruded and calendered into almost any size, shape and thickness.
At our large testing facilities, we can test a specific formulation catering to your manufacturing process.
