Viton is the most specified fluoroelastomer, well known for its excellent (400°F/200°C) heat resistance. Viton offers excellent resistance to aggressive fuels and chemicals. There are many types of Viton to meet specific end-use and processing needs. There are differences between types of Viton in terms of chemical resistance and mechanical properties.
Whether your application is automotive, chemical processing or any number of other industrial applications, there is a particular type of Viton that best meets your specific performance requirements. The general purpose types differ primarily from the specialty types in chemical resistance. In the specialty family, the choice is among four types that are tailored for superior fluid resistance, low-temperature performance or combinations of these properties.
