Fluoroelastomer tubing  (FKM /Viton® tubing )

 

 Fluoroelastomer also commonly known as FKM is a nothing but fluorinated polymer.  Due to high electronegativity of Fluorine, it is difficult to displace fluorine atoms from the polymeric chains. Therefore FKM elastomer has higher chemical resistance and temperature resistance.   Fluorine forms very strong bond with the polymer chains which makes FKM elastomer very stable and chemically inert to a many inorganic and organic solvents, oils, petroleum products etc. Due to superiority to most of the elastomers FKM is very widely used in harsh environment consisting of corrosive chemicals and higher temperatures. 

 

 

Advantages of FKM elastomer:-

 

·      Chemically inert to many solvents specially hydrocarbons

·      Can be compounded to have temperature resistance up to   300° C

·      Has flame retardant properties

 

Note: FKM elastomer is not recommended for use with ketones such as acetone, and organic acids such as acetic acid. For details on compatibility kindly contact us so that our technical representatives can guide you.
