Elastomer FPM compounds with Genuine Viton®
At ERIKS we manufacture most of our standard FPM compounds with Genuine Viton®. There are low-cost fluoroelastomers on the market which are blended with reprocessed scrap materials. These fluoroelastomers might seem like a cheap solution, but the technical properties are inferior compared to 100% fluoroelastomers (Genuine Viton ®).
