Fluorosilicones are used for sealing applications in the aerospace industry requiring resistance to hot fuels, oils, and diester based lubricants. They are often a good choice for static sealing systems for a wide temperature range. Their use is normally limited to static applications due to poor abrasion resistance, relatively low tear strength and only fair flex-cracking resistance, although some grades exist that have improved or even good flex cracking resistance and compression set.
FVMQ rubber compoud is resistant against
• Automotive fuels (gasoline leaded/unleaded, diesel, RME and various test fuels)
• Mineral and synthetic oils
• ATF (automatic transmission fluid)
• Jet fuels and oils
• Various other chemicals and many solvents
