Fluorosilicone o-rings, also short for FVMQ o-rings, combine the advantages of silicone rubber and Viton rubber. The main chain of the fluorosilicon o-rings is a semi-inorganic organosilicon structure. On the basis of maintaining the excellent properties of organosilicon materials such as heat resistance, cold resistance, high voltage resistance, weathering resistance, and environmental protection and non-toxicity, due to the introduction of fluorine-containing groups, they also have the excellent properties of organic fluorine materials such as resistance to hydrogen solvents, oil resistance, acid, and alkali resistance.

Compared to Viton o-rings, fluorosilicone o-rings offer a wider operating temperature range. They provide good stability at extreme temperatures, similar to silicone, and chemical resistance similar to fluorocarbons. Fluorosilicone o-rings are ideal for static applications but have poor wear resistance due to physical properties.
Chemical Resistance Properties
Fluorosilicone o-rings can be widely used in automobiles, aerospace, electric power, aviation, textile, machinery, construction, electronic appliances, and other fields. Sealing, coating, lining, and impregnation for acid rain resistance, self-cleaning and other applications.
