Base Resistant Elastomers
For some oil and gas and automotive applications the base resistance of fluoroelastomer (FKM) products is not sufficient. FEPM rubber has excellent base and amine resistance but has poor low temperature flexibility, poor fuel resistance, and slow cure speed compared to FKM. DAIKIN has developed new 62% fluorine content polymers which combine the processing advantages of FKM with amine resistance comparable to FEPM. These grades are peroxide curable and post curing can be eliminated if desired. For more information, please contact the DAI-EL technical service team today.
