Fluoroelastomer Benefits

Pelseal® Fluoroelastomer Advantages

Outstanding resistance to high heat. Typical operating temperatures from -40 to +400 degrees Fahrenheit (-40 to +205 degrees Celsius) with excursions to +500 degrees Fahrenheit.

  1. Excellent resistance to a broad range of chemicals, i.e. oil, gasoline, hydraulic fluids, bases, hydrocarbon solvents and acids, to name a few.
  2. Resistance to ozone, sunlight, and UV (ultraviolet) radiation.
  3. Resistance to salt spray and fungal growth.
  4. Ambient temperature and heat curing products available.
  5. Bonds to a broad range of substrates, including most metals, concrete, glass, ceramics, fluoroelastomers (FKM, FPM), other elastomers, and some plastics.

Fluoroelastomers generally exhibit toughness and strength, but low molecular weight ketones and esters (i.e. Methyl Ethyl Ketone, Acetone, Ethyl Acetate) are not compatible with fluoroelastomer products. Amines will degrade fluoroelastomer products as well. 

Importance of Flexibility for Chemical and Erosion Resistance


When particles impact a rigid surface (steel, brick, etc.) as illustrated in Fig. A, the energy is not efficiently absorbed by the surface, and over time, erosion will result.

If the surface is coated with an elastomeric coating as illustrated in Fig. B, the energy will be absorbed by the flexing of the surface, and much less erosion will be observed.
