For certain applications where a lining of Fluorosilicone (FVMQ) or regular Fluorocarbon (FKM) doesn’t do the job, we have introduced a new line of Silicone Hoses, lined with Aflas® / FEPM.
FEPM, better know by the Asahi trade-name Aflas®, is also a fluorocarbon polymer, offering advantages over FKM in some situations. Compared to FKM, it has lesser high-temperature compression-set resistance, slightly less oil resistance, similar acid resistance, and better resistance to hot water, steam, explosive decompression, brine, sour downhole environments, downhole corrosion inhibitors, bases, water-based drilling fluids, and high pH drilling fluids.
Our FEPM compound is also certified as per USA regulation 21-CFR-177-2600.
FEPM also offers useful resistance to alcohol, brake fluid, CO2, CH4, gamma radiation, H2S, methane, ozone, and many hydraulic fluids.
