Fluoroelastomer market segments

Global fluoroelastomer market is segmented on the basis of fluorine content present, into three categories viz., tetrafluoro ethylene/propylene rubbers (FEPM), fluoroelastomer polymers (FKM), and perfluoroelastomeric compounds (FFKM). The percentage of fluorine varies from 66%, 68% and 70%. FKM is the major contributor due to its base resistance and better performance in high temperatures. FFKM is the second topmost contributor due to its property of high fluid resistance in coatings and paint production and recovery of oil and gas processes. FEPM contributes through its increased demand in aerospace industries as an effective sealing agent.

Properties of fluoroelastomer

Fluoroelastomer (FKM) market trend is growing due to its various features. It has excellent resistance to chemical attacks by acids and fuels and very good resistance to oil. It is known to showcase limited resistance to polar fluids like steam and menthol. The high ratio of fluorine to hydrogen, strength of carbon-fluroine bond and the absence of unsaturation has made fluoroelastomer excellent in oil resistance and high heat stability.
