Fluoroelastomers (a.k.a. FKM, FPM) are fluorine-containing high performance synthetic rubbers which have exceptional resistance to a broad spectrum of oils, gases, fluids and chemicals at elevated temperatures and in severe environments. They were developed simultaneously in the late 1950’s by DuPont now Chemours (Viton™) and 3M™ (Fluorel™, now Dyneon™). Fluoroelastomers were created to meet harsh aerospace industry requirements as technology evolved in the U.S. to address the need for better chemical resistance, flexibility and temperature resistance from synthetic elastomers.
