Viton® a brand of FKM, a synthetic rubber and fluoropolymer elastomer, is a high performance fluoroelastomer. Due to its wide range of chemical compatibility, temperature range, low compression set, and excellent aging characteristics, fluorocarbon rubber is the most significant single elastomer developed in recent history. Fluorocarbon elastomers are highly fluorinated carbon-based polymers used in applications to resist harsh chemical and ozone attack.
Excellent temperature resistance- Temperature range from –40 °C to +225 °C
High chemical stability- resists degradation from a wider variety of chemicals and fluids – including oils, fuels, lubricants and most mineral acids.
Good weather, aging and oxygen stability- especially resistant to atmospheric oxidation, sun, climatic conditions, fungus and mould.
Excellent resistance in mineral oils and fats
Low gas permeability - known to deliver exceptionally good performance in oxygenated automotive fuels.
