What is Viton® Rubber?
Viton® rubber is a high-performance fluoroelastomer polymer (FKM) that was originally introduced to the aerospace industry in 1957. Utilization of Viton® quickly eventually spread to other industries including automotive, chemical, fluid power and appliance.
Viton® is a highly fluorinated polymer, so it offers exceptional performance in extremely hot and corrosive environments. It also offers superior resistance to aging, oxidizers, ozone, oils and various chemicals. However, Viton® has limited use in low temperature environments.
There are also multiple grades available for Viton® rubber, including copolymers and terpolymers. Common grades of Viton® include hexafluoropropylene, tetrafluoroethylene and vinylidene fluoride. Additonally, Viton® was also the first elastomer of its kind to earn ISO 9000 registration worldwide.
Viton® is a registered trademark of DuPont Performance Elastomers.
