FKM is the ASTM designation for a class of fluorinated, carbon-based synthetic rubber, commonly known as fluoroelastomer. FKM (commonly referred to as FKM rubber) has impressive heat resistance, allowing FKM seals to withstand temperatures greater than 200°C. FKMs also exhibit extraordinary levels of resistance to high pressures, chemicals, and other fluids (including several fuels).
FKM is commonly used to manufacture o-rings, seals, and gaskets. FKM seals and FKM o-rings are used in a variety of high-performance applications in the automotive, aerospace, energy, industrial, and semiconductor industries.
Greene, Tweed manufactures FKM sealing solutions for a variety of applications in a range of industries. View each compound's benefits, temperature range, primary applications, and more.
The Greene Tweed Fusion™ family of FKM-based elastomers are engineered to deliver superior sealing performance than standard FKM materials in challenging operating environments.
Fusion™ elastomers have been engineered to withstand conditions such as rapid gas decompression (RGD), low and high temperatures, and to ensure minimal particulation in clean environments.
The Fusion™ product line combines Greene Tweed’s engineering, design, and materials expertise, focus on continuous product improvement and high-touch customer support and collaboration to develop highly engineered solutions that meet the rapidly evolving needs of the diverse markets we serve.
