FKM O-rings offer an outstanding resistance to mineral oils, aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, as well as CHCs, concentrated and diluted acids, and weak alkalis. Furthermore excellent resistance to high temperatures (up to 200 °C) and a low temperature resistance down to -40 °C depending on the type used as well as good mechanical attributes and an exceptionally good ageing resistance make FPM a cut well above the usual synthesis natural rubbers.
