FKM; aka Viton®
Clwyd Compounders have been at the forefront of fluoroelastomer compounding for over 30 years. We have a dedicated internal mixer and mixing line for fluoroelastomer compounds which benefits from our decades of experience, improving the process, to provide the most consistent compound on the market.
Fluoroelastomers are often considered to be a single polymer type, but fluoroelastomers can be further subdivided on the basis of their monomer type(s). Different fluoroelastomer subtypes offer different compound properties (dependent on their constituent monomers and cure systems), which can lead to significant differences in compound performance. This large family of elastomers include polymers that are capable of resisting oils, methanol, caustic or corrosive chemicals, steam and extremes of temperatures (as low as -50°C or as high as 320°C). As fluoroelastomer specialists, we can help guide you to the most suitable fluoroelastomer subtype for your needs.
