Understanding CP75BK01 FFKM
Canyon Components CanRez™ CP75BK01 is a high temp FFKM perfluoroelastomer: a type of fluoroelastomer derived from highly fluorinated carbon and oxygen monomers. This advanced elastomer possesses an exceptional combination of properties that make them ideal for demanding environments where other elastomers fall short. FFKM perfluoroelastomers exhibit excellent resistance to heat, chemicals, fuels, solvents, and extreme temperatures ranging from cryogenic to high heat. Frequently used as an alternative to Kalrez® 6375 and Kalrez® 4079, CanRez™ CP75BK01 can be used to manufacture O-rings, gaskets, and custom molded parts.
CanRez™ perfluoroelastomer components have emerged as the favored solution for ensuring durable and dependable seals in the most challenging chemical environments. As the demand grows for elastomeric seals to perform exceptionally under increasingly aggressive chemical conditions and higher temperatures, parts made from CanRez™ CP75BK01 have become more and more common. These parts provide enhanced chemical resistance while preserving the renowned high temperature stability associated with CanRez™ components.
CP75BK01 has been meticulously engineered to deliver outstanding performance across a broad range of chemicals and temperatures. It excels in applications involving acids, bases, amines, steam, ethylene oxide, MDEA, and other highly corrosive substances. Mixed streams can now be effectively managed with the implementation of CP75BK01.
Additionally, the CP75BK01 curing system enables continuous operation at temperatures of up to 320°C (610°F), surpassing Kalrez® 6375 by approximately 85°F and Kalrez® 4079 by approximately 10°F. Notably, CanRez™ CP75BK01 also boasts a steam rating of up to 300°C (580°F), further exceeding competitor capabilities.
Exceptional Chemical Resistance
One of the most remarkable features of FFKM perfluoroelastomers is their outstanding chemical resistance. These elastomers can withstand exposure to aggressive chemicals, acids, bases, and solvents without degradation. Even in harsh environments with corrosive substances, FFKM perfluoroelastomers retain their integrity, making them indispensable in applications such as chemical processing, oil and gas, semiconductor manufacturing, and pharmaceutical industries. CanRez™ CP75BK01 exceeds most FFKMs, with extreme resistance to solvents, esters, ethers, & Ketones, and many more at extremely high temperatures up to 320°C (610°F).
