    Yoson FFKM O RING Chemical Application Case

    chemical process of oxidation

    In the oxidation process at a temperature of 220 degrees, the acetic acid medium was used before, but the fluoroelastomer decomposed and rotted quickly, resulting in hydrogen fluoride corrosion of the titanium shaft. After our suggestion, the FFKM O ring was used, which was not corroded and continued to seal well after one year of use.

    chemical process pump

    The chemical process pump is pumping ketones, methylene chloride, and methyl isocyanate in turn at 150 degrees. Previously, other polymer elastomeric seal materials were used, and the seal was replaced every time the solvent was changed, at a cost of $500 per replacement.  With our recommendation, using our FFKM O ring, we can maintain at least 8 months of life and save an estimated $14,000 per year.

    FFKM O-Rings: The Ultimate FAQ Guide

    If you are looking for FFKM O-Rings for your project, or if you want to learn more about FFKM material, please follow me to read this FAQ Guide.

    This guide provides a comprehensive overview of all FFKM O-Ring materials, properties, temperatures, media, applications, design, installation, etc.

    It gives you all information, and you quickly select the right seal for your project.

    What does FFKM Mean?

    FFKM is Perfluoroelastomer (synthetic rubber), also called FFPM.

    FFKM has excellent resistance to high temperature and chemical corrosion and can resist the corrosion of more than 1600 kinds of chemicals.

    And it also has the elasticity of rubber, and its compression deformation rate at 330℃ is only below 50%.

    Except for swelling in fluorinated solvents, it is stable to all chemicals.

    In addition to excellent chemical resistance and heat resistance, FFKM O-Ring is homogeneous and has no surface troubles such as permeation, cracking, and pinholes.

    These features can improve FFKM O-Ring sealing performance, extend the operating cycle of machinery and effectively reduce your maintenance costs.

    What is FFKM Material Made of?

    Perfluoroelastomer FFKM materials are terpolymers consisting of monomers.

    All hydrogen atoms are replaced by fluorine.

    Figure 1 FFKM Molecular structure

    The absence of hydrogen in the molecular chain significantly improves their chemical and thermal resistance.

    This allows FFKM O-Ring to provide excellent sealing performance

    What is the Difference between FFKM and FKM?

    FKM Temperature Range

    Static seal: -26℃~232℃, short time up to 275℃
    Dynamic seal: -15℃~200℃
    GLT type: -45℃~215℃

    FKM Characteristics:

    High-temperature resistance, acid and alkali resistance, oil resistance, chemical corrosion resistance, high-temperature resistance is better than silicone rubber, excellent chemical resistance, resistance to most oils and solvents (except ketones, esters), weather resistance, and ozone resistance;

    The cold resistance is relatively poor. The general use temperature range is -20~250 ℃, and the special formula can withstand low temperatures to -40 ℃.

    Perfluoroelastomer FFKM Temperature Range

    The general application temperature is sustainable for 260 ℃ to 290 ℃, and can be used intermittently for 316 ℃ high temperatures.

    Perfluoroelastomer FFKM O-rings, mainly used in the semiconductor industry, have chemical resistance close to PTFE and are therefore resistant to basically all chemical liquids and gases, such as organic acids, inorganic acids, bases, ketones, esters, and alcohols.

    FFKM O-Rings have the excellent chemical resistance of Teflon but also have the elasticity of rubber, excellent heat resistance, and cleanliness. According to the temperature, long-term use can be divided into long-term 250 degrees, long-term 280 degrees, long-term 300 degrees, long-term 320 degrees

    Different Molecular Structures of FKM and FFKM

    From the molecular structure, unlike FKM, the carbon atoms of the main chain or side chain of perfluoroelastomer rubber FFKM are all bonded with fluorine atoms. Compared with FKM, it has higher fluoride content, and the general fluorine content of the finished product of perfluoroelastomer FFKM is between 74-76%. Because the fluorine content is higher than FKM, the perfluoroelastomer rubber has the best temperature and chemical resistance among all elastomers.

    FFKM O-Rings can also resist the corrosion of strong acids, strong alkalis, ethers, ketones, esters, nitrogenous compounds, hydrocarbons, alcohols, aldehydes, oils, vapors, amine compounds, and other chemical products.

    The main feature of FFKM perfluorinated ether O-ring is that it is unaffected by almost all fluids, including aliphatic, aromatic, ester, ether, ketone, oil, lubricant, and most acids. Some halides and strong oxidizing acids can cause material swelling effects.

    The general application temperature of FFKM O-Rings is sustainable for 260℃ to 290℃ and can be used intermittently at a high temperature of 316℃. Ozone and weather and flame resistance are excellent, radiation resistance is still possible, but also can be used for high vacuum materials.

    Perfluoroelastomer FFKM is used in applications where fluoroelastomer cannot perform and where conditions are harsh. Make seals for various media, such as rocket fuel, umbilical, oxidizer, nitrous oxide, fuming nitric acid, etc., used in aerospace, aviation, chemical, petroleum, nuclear energy, and other industrial sectors.

    FFKM has More High-Temperature Resistance than FKM

    Figure 2 FFKM VS FKM

    Figure 3 FFKM VS FKM

    FKM and other rubber products at 240°C, the deformation rate rises sharply with time, while the compression deformation of full FFKM always stays below 50%.

    FFKM can maintain the elastic characteristics of rubber even at 300°C.

    FFKM has more excellent chemical properties than FKM In terms of chemical resistance, FKM cannot be used in ether, amine compounds, ketones, oxidizers, organic solvents, fuels, acids, bases, and other environments, but FFKM can all show its excellent stability and has excellent resistance to almost all chemicals.

    FFKM O-Rings can withstand up to 1600 chemicals.

    After 6 months of immersion in a mixture of toluene, acetone, and methylene chloride, FFKM O-Rings showed almost no volume change, while other rubbers were already severely deformed

    What’s the Difference between FFKM and PTFE?

    PTFE is made of tetrafluoroethylene and contains only carbon and fluorine. The material is very hard.

    Figure 4 PTFE Molecular

    FFKM is made from tetrafluoroethylene, vinylidene fluoride, and perfluoromethyl vinyl ether, so in addition to carbon and fluorine, it contains hydrogen and oxygen. These additional monomers make the polymer an elastomer. The material is soft.

    Figure 5 FFKM VS PTFE

    PTFE and FFKM are different polymers, FFKM is an elastomer and PTFE is a rigid plastic.

    However, FFKM has the elasticity and the thermal and chemical stability of PTFE.

    In addition, FFKM not only has excellent resistance to high temperature and chemical corrosion like PTFE (it can resist corrosion of more than 1600 kinds of chemicals), but also has the elasticity of rubber, and its compression deformation rate at 330℃ is only below 50%.

    If you are looking for a soft elastomer for your project, we recommend FFKM O-Ring.
