Fluorosilicone (FVMQ) O-Rings

Temperature Range:

-75°F (-59°C) to 400°F (204°C)

Hardness (Shore A) Range:

40 to 80

Also Known As:

Silastic LS®, FSE®

Designation:

FVMQ

Class:

FK

Shelf Life:

Unlimited

Description:

Fluorosilicones are used widely in jet fuel applications and where the dry-heat resistance of silicone is required.

Advantages:

Excellent resistance to petroleum oils and hydrocarbon fuels as well as diester base lubricants (up to 175°C).

Disadvantages:

Compared to silicone, it has a poor hot air resistance, and poor physical characteristics restricting its use with dynamic applications.
