Perfluoroelastomer (FFKM) is the most chemically resistant elastomer available and is effectively a rubber form of PTFE. Perlast® perfluoroelastomer grades provide additional properties which prove most valuable in critical sealing applications where purity, high temperatures and retention of sealing force are paramount.
INNOVATION | PERFORMANCE | AVAILABILITY
The Perlast® range of perfluoroelastomer materials are at the leading edge of polymer technology. They have been developed by PPE to offer superior sealing solutions with enhanced performance and improved functionality, which has been proven in the field for over 20 years. Perlast® parts are manufactured exclusively by PPE, including O-rings, sanitary gaskets and spring seals.
If you are having problems sourcing FFKM sealing products from your existing supplier, check out the reasons why you should consider Perlast®. There's a handy cross reference table of FFKM grades to get you started.
Features of Perlast® FFKM seals include:
