As reported by Tribonet in their article “Fluoroelastomers,” fluorocarbon elastomers are known for their superior temperature resistance and exceptional chemical inertness. These properties are attributed to the bulkiness of fluorine atoms and the strength of the carbon-fluorine bond, which provide high stability against mineral oil-based lubricants and thermal degradation.

Fluoroelastomers are saturated rubbers, typically cured using bisphenol or peroxide rather than sulfur vulcanization. The introduction of fluorine into hydrocarbon rubbers results in polar molecules with enhanced chemical resistance and thermal stability. These characteristics make fluoroelastomers suitable for static applications where high stability and low gas permeability are required. They exhibit a temperature range from -40°C to 225°C, excellent resistance to mineral oils, fats, and non-polar media, and maintain their integrity under harsh environmental conditions.

By leveraging the unique properties of fluoroelastomers, the company continues to offer solutions that enhance reliability and performance in static applications across various sectors.
