Product Details


FKM, short for Fluoroelastomer, is a high-performance synthetic rubber known for its exceptional density, durability, and resistance to water, chemicals, oil, and heat. Originally developed for aerospace applications, FKM was designed to meet the stringent reliability and longevity requirements of aircraft and space missions. These qualities make FKM straps highly favored by military personnel, police officers, and professional divers, as they remain unaffected by frequent exposure to bright light, unlike ordinary rubber straps.

Key features of FKM rubber straps include:

  • Water-proof and Chemical/Dust/Dirt Resistant: These straps maintain their integrity in harsh environments.
  • 316L Stainless Steel Fastener: Ensures robust and corrosion-resistant attachment.
  • Quick Release System: Allows for fast and tool-free removal and replacement, using a cylindrical quick-release button on one side.
  • Lightweight and Soft: Provides maximum comfort for extended wear.
  • High Durability: Designed to withstand rigorous conditions.

Despite the numerous benefits, FKM rubber straps are not universally used due to their higher cost compared to other types of rubber or silicone. Their use is often justified by the need for superior performance and durability in demanding situations.

These straps are ideal replacements for both dive watches and standard infantry watches, offering a reliable and long-lasting solution for users with exacting requirements.
