Fluorosilicone (FVMQ) O-Rings Material Description
Fluorosilicone (FVMQ) o-rings maintain excellent high temperature stability while offering excellent resistance to petroleum oils and hydrocarbon fuels as well as diester base lubricants (up to 175°C). FVMQ is widely used in aerospace, jet fuel applications, engine gaskets, automotive emission control systems, fuel pumps and tank systems. FVMQ has poor high friction and abrasion material properties and are not recommended for dynamic sealing.
Engineered Seal Products has the expertise and inventory for your fluorosilicone (FVMQ) o-ring applications. For over 50 years, ESP has been the leading engineering, quality, and supply chain choice for both standard and custom sealing applications. A seal, no matter the application, has to do just that.

What's The Difference Between Flourosilicone (FVMQ) & Silicone (VMQ) O-Rings?
While Flourosilicone is part of the Silicone family the biggest difference is that silicone (VMQ) offers great hot air resistance compared to Flourosilicone (FVMQ). While flourosilicone offers improved fuel and minieral oil resistance in comparison to silicone.
