Greene Tweed is widely renowned for its Chemraz® brand of FFKM (perfluoroelastomer) seals, which has the broadest chemical resistance of any elastomeric material, along with the resilience and sealing force needed to withstand extreme temperatures and pressures within the most challenging applications.

The Greene Tweed Fusion™ family of fluoroelastomer compounds is engineered to deliver superior sealing performance than standard FKM materials in challenging operating environments.

Fusion™ elastomers have been engineered to withstand conditions such as chemical and plasma exposure, rapid gas decompression (RGD), low and high temperatures, and to ensure minimal metal and particle contamination in clean environments.

“Operating environments for elastomers are becoming more specialized and challenging with the rapid progression of technology,” says Elizabeth Sassano, Greene Tweed’s Platform Manager, Elastomers. “The Fusion™ family of engineered materials provides enhanced performance within these rugged and demanding conditions that exceeds the capabilities of standard FKM seals.”

The Fusion™ product line combines Greene Tweed’s engineering, design, application knowledge, and materials expertise, continuous product improvement, and high-touch customer support and collaboration to develop highly engineered solutions that meet the rapidly evolving needs of the diverse markets we serve.
