FKM (FLUOROCARBON)

Specially Formulated Compound

FKMs FOR THE OIL INDUSTRY

Greene, Tweed works with a number of production compounds of FKM (fluorocarbon) material commonly used in the oil industry. This material is relatively inexpensive, but copes well with certain sour environments and has a temperature range of -20°F to 450°F (-29°C to 232°C). FKM materials should not be used in the presence of potentially high doses of H2S, amine-based inhibitors, and methanol. These will attack the material causing swelling or embrittlement (premature aging), leading to breakdown and failure of the seal.
