FKM Enhances Wearability

Fluoroelastomers (FKM) are synthetic rubbers that have become a proven choice for premium wearable products because of their unique properties. As a more dense material, they offer superior look and feel characteristics compared to silicones and urethanes. FKM properties include:

 

  • Chemical and stain resistance to sweat, skin oils, food and beverage
  • Durability and abrasion resistance
  • Color stability
  • Odor resistance
  • Ozone resistance to cracking
  • Colorability – wide range of colors available. Learn more about Cri-Tech Color Development.
  • Selected Cri-Tech compounds have been tested for ISO 10993 biocompatibility.*
Custom Solutions for your Wearable Application

Because wearable products are exposed to an assortment of chemicals and environments, different formulations may be required to address criteria for stain resistance, feel and color durability.

We work closely with our customers to understand these performance criteria and we respond quickly to meet the ever-changing trends and needs of our customers in the consumer market.
