VITON® RUBBER is one of the newest and most promising members of the elastomer family, FLUOROELASTOMERS resist a wide variety of corrosive fluids at elevated temperatures while retaining their mechanical properties. Other important features of VITON include resistance to weathering, ozone, oxygen and flame... good tensile strength, resilience, low compression set. Unlike many of their counterparts, VITON FLUOROELASTOMERS retain their basic properties at extremely high temperatures.
Although FLUOROELASTOMERS are still undergoing extensive development, their excellent mechanical stability under severe operating conditions make them an ideal component from any standpoint except price.
Viton Chemical Designation: Fluorinated Hydrocarbon
