Chemraz® FFKM Overview

FFKM, or perfluoroelastomer, contains higher amounts of fluorine than standard FKM, and features higher temperature ratings, up to approximately 325°C (617°F). FFKM also has improved chemical resistance, with nearly universal chemical compatibility. This combination of high-performance capabilities makes FFKM seals the premium choice for the most challenging applications.

The first commercially available FFKM seal was produced in the late 1960s. However, widespread manufacturing of FFKM materials did not occur until the late 1980s due to patent restrictions.

FFKM is used in o-rings and seals in environments with high temperatures and/or harsh chemicals in the aerospace, semiconductor, energy, pharmaceutical, and industrial industries.

Greene Tweed’s Chemraz® is the ultimate elastomeric FFKM material. Chemraz® is a polymer of three or more monomers in which all hydrogen positions have been replaced with fluorine. It has the broadest chemical resistance of any elastomeric material.
