Viton Rubber

Viton® is a registered trademark of Dupont Dow Elastomers L.L.C. Viton® is used in a class of synthetic rubber fluorocarbon elastomers. A copolymer is chosen for the Viton® rubber compound based on the product application. Polymers commonly used are hexafluoropropylene (HFP) and vinylidene fluoride (VDF or VF2), terpolymers of tetrafluoroethylene (TFE), vinylidene fluoride (VDF) and hexafluoropropylene (HFP), and perfluoromethylvinylether (PMVE).

Viton® provides high-temperature stability, low compression set, and resistance to chemicals, oil, and ozone. Although Viton® was initially fabricated for the aerospace industry; this rubber compound is also used in fluid power, automotive, appliance, and chemical applications for rubber products such as hoses, seals, o-rings, expansion joints, shaft seals, and rubber gaskets.

Viton is a brand of FKM (fluorocarbon), it is different to other materials as it provides additional heat and chemical resistance – making it a durable option for many industries. The temperature range of this material is between -20° to + 200°C
