Fluoroelastomer is compatible with RME biofuels.

Suited for biodiesel applications, Dyneon(TM) FPO 3741 Fluoroelastomer features chemical resistance to rapeseed-oil methyl ester (RME) biodiesel fuel. Fluoroelastomer exhibits constant low swell level, and retains its physical properties even after 1,000 hrs of RME exposure at 150-ºC. Peroxide curable product also exhibits permeation resistance when exposed to gasoline/alcohol fuel blends.
