FKM (fluorocarbon-based polymer) inner layer + Silicone VMQ (Vinyl Methyl Quality) + Polyester fabric
Vena® PEM FUEL
Mostly used when there are strict minimum permeability requirements.
Vena® PEM FUEL is specially designed to fulfill the main requirements to use in the cathode and anode of PEM (polymer electrolyte membrane) Fuel Cell systems.
Mostly used when there are strict minimum permeability requirements. Also recommended for the low level of critical pollutants it releases. So it is mostly always required for the anode subsystem, very often also required on the cathode and to a lesser extent in the coolant subsystem due to its low conductivity.
- Low degree of permeability to gases. FKM material has lower permeability values to hydrogen gas compared to other elastomers.
- Low conductivity.
- Excellent purity – extremely low extractables and volatile compounds content.

Usually, external green color used for cathode and external red color for anode, but color could be customized under request.
