Fluoroelastomer or FKM refers to a type of synthetic rubber that is widely used in various industries due to its exceptional chemical resistance and high-temperature stability. It is a copolymer of hexafluoropropylene and vinylidene fluoride, which results in a material with superior resistance to acids, fuels, oils, solvents, and other harsh chemicals. It exhibits excellent mechanical properties, including high tensile strength, elongation, and tear resistance, making it suitable for use in extreme environments where other materials may fail. It is also resistant to ozone and UV radiation, which makes it ideal for outdoor applications. In recent years, fluoroelastomer has gained traction as it is a versatile material that offers excellent chemical resistance, mechanical properties, and temperature stability, making it a preferred choice for a wide range of applications.
