We are a materials science company and have a vocation for innovation. Our inspirations are not in one place, but in each and every place.
FCC appeared at the end of the 1960s, and began its history producing components for the footwear market. Its dedication to improving processes and developing new technologies brought success. Success brought the will to grow and innovate even more. Then FCC consolidated itself, expanded its portfolio, and became a reference. Today, it does not produce a single material that it produced in the beginning, demonstrating its ability to create, co-create, reinvent, and transform itself.
The importance of FCC in the national footwear is the result of the constant development of technologies that provide more agile, efficient, economical, and sustainable processes. With a qualified commercial and technical team spread all over Brazil and Latin America, we know in detail the processes of our customers, and we develop specific solutions for the footwear market that generate differentiation and value.
FCC products for this market are multifunctional and are present in many parts of an automobile. Our products are used in under the hood, interior and exterior applications, for parts such as headlight seals, cowls, sealing profiles, levers, door handles, mirror seals, air conditioning, air ducts, dust covers, cowl tops, spoilers, trim, plugs, through-holes, cup holders, linings, among others. Its applications range from components that require high chemical and temperature resistance, to sophisticated finishes.
There are several possibilities of product application in the furniture industry and we believe in working together with the customers to achieve the best results. FCC has an experienced and qualified technical team that works in partnership with customers, to get to know their process in detail and thus be able to indicate the right product, with the best cost-benefit and production efficiency.
Civil construction is one of the most important segments of the Brazilian economy, and FCC has several products that are used in this market. Our products are applied in everything from small repairs, with butyl sealants, and gluing plumbing, with PVC adhesive, to complex engineering works, such as the construction of walls with the innovative Massa DunDun, or waterproofing slabs and floors, with elastomeric coatings.
With over two decades of experience and a broad portfolio of thermoplastic elastomers, we have acquired the knowledge and technology required to develop new formulations, adapting material characteristics according to the application. A qualified technical team works together with the customers to evaluate the process and technical needs, homologating the most adequate product.
Specialists in sealing agro-industrial silos, we are suppliers of butyl seals to the main national silo producers. The use of FCC caulking compound in the construction of the structure guarantees the conservation of the grain, by isolating it from humidity and dust. We also produce blanket kits, for silo repairs, and elastomeric coatings, which can be used with the aim of increasing the asset's useful life.
The sealing and grip characteristics, combined with the ease of processing, make TPEs the best candidates for countless applications in household appliances. For this reason, they are already part of our lives and have established themselves as a great option to replace rubbers. Used in plastic jars, electric appliance buttons, tool handles, thermos bottles, among others, FCC's TPEs are versatile materials that can be processed in colors, besides being 100% recyclable.
With years of experience, we have specialized in the production of advanced polymeric coating technologies. The portfolio includes pure, aromatic, aliphatic and fast curing polyureas, polyurethanes and hybrid formulations, metalceramic polymers and primers. FCC's unique chemical formulations are designed to create products that have resistance to abrasion, chemical attack, and exposure to ultraviolet radiation. They also offer protection against all types of impact, and the coating thickness can be adjusted as needed.
Polyurea is a very high performance coating that has adherence to the most diverse substrates. FCC has numerous successful cases throughout Brazil and in various segments such as mining, oil and gas, and sanitation. The polyurea, polyurethane and hybrid elastomers are available in different formulations, with chemical-physical properties and durability suited to the specific requirements of each project and application.
For over a decade, our technology has brought sustainability and innovation to the construction site, and has helped to build over 20 millionm2 of construction. Massa DunDun is the evolution of common mortar: it generates economy, practicality and safety in the work, is easy to store and transport, generates less waste and increases the speed of the work up to 3 times. In addition, it provides mechanical performance and durability unparalleled in the market, because it uses nanoparticles organized in structures that ensure optimum distribution of its polymeric compounds.
Sealants are used to seal a surface, to prevent the passage of liquid or vapor, reducing production losses. We specialize in the production of butyl-based sealants, products that have excellent flexibility and elasticity, and are very cost-effective. We produce a wide range of caulking compounds, commonly used in sealing silos and other civil construction applications, and butyl sealing rings for toilet bowls.
Thermoplastic elastomers are polymer-based compounds that, when heated to their molten state, can be molded and turned into various parts and products. They are almost as flexible and elastic as traditional rubber, but with much greater versatility in relation to their processing, resulting in endless applications. With knowledge acquired in more than 30 years, we have developed a wide range of products, meeting the most rigorous quality controls.
With more than 40 years of experience in manufacturing adhesives, we have developed technical knowledge and became specialists. We have a wide portfolio of glues and adhesives for use in several substrates, customizing the product according to your application. We produce several formulations in liquid, solid, or grain format, for the footwear, furniture, civil construction, and automotive industries, among many others.
