Fluorosilicones (FVMQs) are very competitive when used in applications requiring wide operating temperatures and fluid resistance. Their unique physical properties have never been in greater demand for applications in contact with jet/automotive fuels, solvents and/or engine oils. As more fabricators manufacture products using fluorosilicones and competition increases, Dow Corning’s high consistency fluorosilicone compound technology (FSR) has evolved to offer greater flexibility in meeting these requirements. At the same time, Dow Corning understood there were still unmet needs for fluorinated materials for use in liquid injection molding equipment.
