Resifluor™ 500: superior properties from a FKM
Increased flexibility from Resifluor™ 500 range
he Resifluor™ 500 range is a highly fluorinated specialty FKM with a modified polymer architecture, specifically developed for critical bioprocessing, food, beverage and pharmaceutical applications. It is engineered to combine the chemical resistance of an EPDM towards polar fluids, alkalis and acids, with the performance characteristics of FKM materials in a variety of aggressive fluids.
Resifluor™ 500 shows:
- Excellent resistance to attack by a variety of chemicals and fluids, including aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, acids and bases, all types of alcohols and even low molecular ketones, esters and aldehydes.
- Compared to conventional FKM materials, it has better resistance to steam and caustic cleaning regimes.
Provides exceptional cleanliness
Resifluor™ 500 also has low total organic carbon and metal extractables similar to PTFE, which gives the ultimate in cleanliness. This makes it suitable for pharmaceutical applications and bioprocessing in particular, where any extractables may interfere with bio organisms.
Areas of use:
- Especially suited to processes where there is contact with high fat media such as grease and oils or at high temperature.
- Typical applications include Mechanical Seals, Decanters, Separators, Pumps, Tanks, Valves, Heat Exchangers and equipment cleaned using CIP and SIP regimes.
O-Ring, Square Seal, Kantseal, Flat Seal, Gaskets, Diaphragms, also reinforced.
FKM can also be bonded to other materials and delivered as engineered parts in almost any design.
