Silicone is an immensely adaptive material favoured for use in food and medical industries due to its anti-microbial characteristics and extreme temperature range. However, the biggest drawback of silicone is its poor compatibility and resistance to chemicals. Fluorinating the compound creates stronger bonds which improves its resistance to fuel and mineral oils. Please note, fluorinated silicone is not suitable for use with hot air applications.
