FKM Color Pairing Tips illuminate Your watches

When it comes to rubber watch bands, 'Fluoroelastomer', in short refer to as 'FKM', is rated the best possible type of rubber currently available in the market. The material was originally developed by DuPont of the United States under the brand name Viton®.

Today, many other producers are producing this valuable material. Depending on the type of polymer used, there are variations of FKM rubber. The higher the fluorine content, the more resistant the material will be. For those who are not familiar with the term 'FKM', it is a class of synthetic rubber designed for very high temperature operations.

FKM rubber also provides high levels of resistance to chemicals, heat and oil, while providing useful service life above 200°C.   It's always nice to be able to perfectly color match when you are looking for a replacement strap for your watch.

FKM rubber is often used in aerospace and nautical industries, which speaks a lot about its quality.  Recently, we have added the FKM08 rubber watch strap to our collection.
