Freezing environments are known to be unkind to elastomeric sealing components. As temperatures drop below the compounds’ capabilities, it can jeopardize the physical properties. The elastomer can become more plastic-like, resulting in:
  • Less flexibility
  • Higher brittleness
  • Lower rebound
  • Diminished ability to hold a seal

Low Temperature Fluorocarbon (FKM)

To provide our customers with low temperature FKM sealing solutions, we have formulated two specialty compounds, V717 and V9M2, using Viton™ GLT polymer.

Our V717 & 9M2 compounds allow our customers to benefit a low temperature FKM without compromising their high temperature capabilities, broad chemical resistance, excellent fluid resistance, etc. These compounds have a general temperature range of -40°C to 200°C (-40°F to 392°F).

Both compounds have a long history of successfully performing in some of the most challenging downhole applications.They offer strong resistance to a broad range of chemicals, including hot water and steam.

Our V717 compound is a general use low temperature FKM material. Our V9M2 was formulated for environments where rapid gas decompression (RGD) may be a concern. It has been third-party tested to ensure it meets rigorous industry standards, including:

  • NORSOK M-710 (Rev.2) RGD
  • API 6A Sour Gas Service
  • NACE TM0297 RGD

V717 & V9M2 Advantages:

  • General temp. range of -40°C to 200°C (-40°F to 392°F)
  • Superior performance in pressure and temperature cycling applications
  • Resistance to a broad range of chemicals, including hot water and steam
  • Excellent resistance to petroleum, oil, and gas
  • Great resistance in corrosive environments
  • Low gas permeability
  • Outstanding mechanical properties
  • Proven resistance to rapid gas decompression (V9M2 only)
