What is the fcc?

We are
tireless
in the search for the new.

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.

Agribusiness

Tradition and experience in manufacturing seals

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.

Houseware

The applications of thermoplastic elastomers are infinite

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.

Industrial facilities

We specialize in elastomeric coatings

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.
