FKM's are serviceable in continuous heat of up to 250℃ and intermittent heat of up to 300℃.
Satisfactory resistance to low temperatures of typically -20℃ and - 40℃ by use of special grades.
FKM's exhibit good flame resistance and are usually self extinguishing upon removal of flame source.
All FKM's have excellent resistance to oxygen, ozone and natural weathering.
FKM compounds have outstanding resistance to compression, especially at elevated temperatures.
Resistance to chemicals; amongst all synthetic rubbers FKM's are the most resistant to many of the solvents and chemicals, giving long
service where other materials do not.
Excellent resistance against hydrocarbons, aliphatics, aromatic and chlorinated chemicals.
Good resistance to acids and alkali's including oxidants. Poor performance against ethers, ketones, and bases.
