Fluorosilicone is considerably more expensive than silicone, however it is developed for special applications where general resistance to oxidizing chemicals, aromatic and chlorinated solvent bases is required. At Minor Rubber, we offer recess style bumpers and insulation grommets in fluorosilicone.
Fluorosilicone is not recommended and is generally attacked when exposed to brake fluids, hydrazine and ketones. Fluorosilicone should not be confused with silicone in regard to high heat resistance.
