Fluorosilicone (FVMQ)

Fluorosilicone (FVMQ)


Fluorosilicone (FVMQ) combines most of the attributes of silicone with resistance to petroleum oils and hydrocarbon fuels.Low physical strength and abrasion resistance combined with high friction limit fluorosilicone to static seals.


Application advantages:

  • Excellent heat resistance.
  • Excellent resistance to ozone, sunlight, oxidation and possesses excellent felxibility at low tempratures.
  • Excellent electrical and flame resistivity.
  • Excellent resistance to water, ammonia, dilute acids, alkalis, lubricating oils, fuel oils and aliphatic hydrocarbons such as kerosene.
  • Temperature range of -59°C to 232°C.

Application limitations:

  • Poor mechanical properties rating.
  • Low tensile strength.
  • Fair compression set resistance.
  • Poor resistance to ketones and oxygenated solvents.
