FKM Rubber Sheeting
Fluorocarbon (FKM Rubber Sheeting)
The Rubber Company supply commercial FKM rubber sheeting as an alternative to genuine Viton® rubber. FKM (fluorocarbon rubber) is a high performance material with excellent resistance to hydrocarbons, chemicals and high temperatures.
Fluoroelastomer rubber sheeting is widely used in the automotive industry where bio-diesel is transported. We can supply FKM rubber sheeting in rolls, sheet and convert to gaskets & strip.
Despite FKM sheeting having high resistance to hydrocarbons, oils, acids and chemicals, it cannot be used where resistance to ketones is required.
