Driving the innovation in high performance rubber compounds

A good collaboration between the three companies for a FFKM sealing project

Working with the best in class rubber in the world!

Beginning of 2015 Polycomp was approached by HSM Offshore to provide seals for deck hatches based on perfluoroelastomers (FFKM).

Polycomp lined up with RIS Rubber for production of the seals. Polycomp, having 25 years of experience in developing and producing customer specific high performance rubber compounds, developed a suitable FFKM compound for this application.

RIS Rubber, a manufacturer of rubber moulded products, took on the challenge to produce the seals. Besides costs of the FFKM compound, also the dimensions of the seals and the short lead time posed some challenges.

FFKMs are known for their outstanding chemical resistance and high operating temperatures (depending on type up to 325 °C), outperforming FKMs. Their unique properties at the same time make it expensive materials.

After production HSM Offshore glued the FFKM seals onto the deck covers which where mounted on top of the platform.
We are proud of the collaboration between the three companies and hope to carry out more of these special projects in the near future.
