Color – reddish-brown (russet)

MVQ | FDA is a methyl vinyl silicone rubber commonly known as Silicone. It has poor mechanical properties and is therefore mainly used in static applications. It is highly resistant to weathering, ozone and ageing and is used for applications in contact with foodstuff, hot air and mineral oils. MVQ | FDA has a high gas permeability. MVQ | FDA corresponds to foodgrade standards.


Good resistance
Low resistance
Engine and transmission oil of aliphatic nature, also sulfur oils

Fire-resistant pneumatic fluids HFD-R (phosphoric acid ester) and HFD-S(chlorinated hydrocarbons)
low molecular weight chlorinated hydrocarbons (trichlorethylene)
Dilute salt solutions
Overheated steam up to 120°С (only short time steam sterilization is possible)
Acids and alkalis


MVQ can be used for production of O-Rings and other seal parts. MVQ is mainly used in cases where are no other alternatives because of high temperatures and chemical stress. Due to its low mechanical properties use should be reduced to static application.

MVQ is used as a sealing material in the pharmaceutical and food industry.

Mainly used

  • Special seals in the chemical and food industry
  • Rotary shaft seals for special use
  • O-rings
