Viton* fluoroelastomer

Where Viton™ fluoroelastomers Are Used

In automotive applications, the latest generation of Viton™ has established a new performance standard for today's advanced fuel and engine systems. Viton™ provides improved system durability in extreme temperatures for fuels, oils, transmission fluids, and acid condensates.

In tough oil and gas down-hole applications, Viton™ can help extend maintenance intervals and help protect against seal failure.

Viton™ has delivered sealing at high temperatures in aggressive fluids for jet engines, thereby ensuring reliability, and can serve continuously at 204°C even after excursions to 315°C.

The heat-resistant properties far outlast nitrile rubber and other general-purpose elastomers. Its reliability can allow extended service intervals, and help stretch maintenance budgets by reducing unscheduled downtime across many industries, including:

  • Aircraft and aerospace
  • Automotive
  • Chemical processing and transportation
  • Oil and gas exploration and production
  • Petroleum refining and transportation

Major uses include bonded seals, radial lip seals, caulks, coatings, vibration dampeners, expansion joints, gaskets, O-rings, piston seals, custom shapes, and stock rods and sheets.

Viton™ is readily available around the world, helping our customers satisfy their end-users. The long-term value, higher durability and quality make the initial investment a sound business decision.
