Also known as Viton™, or Fluorel it was designed to meet the needs of the aerospace industry for a high performing seal elastomer. Since then, the high-performance fluoroelastomer has been expanded to many other industries—especially in the automotive, fluid power, appliance, and chemical fields. Viton™ fluoroelastomers have a reputation for outstanding performance in high temperatures and extremely corrosive environments. The superior heat and fluid resistance of Viton™ makes it ideal for use in harsh environments. Viton™ fluoroelastomers offer outstanding resistance to heat, swell, permeation, and degradation when in contact with harsh automotive fuels, fuel additives, oils, lubricants, and most mineral acids. They also provide exceptional tensile strength, tear, and compression set resistance.
