Custom Viton Seals for Your Business
Timco Rubber supplies businesses with high-quality Viton seals made to survive tough environments. We work directly with businesses to supply them with the custom seals they need for environments with fuel, oil, or corrosive materials. Reach out to our team today to invest in the seals your business needs to succeed.
Viton (FKM) Seals Made for Concentrated Acids, Oils, Chemicals, and Other Challenges
There is no single sealing solution for every application. When your seals need to survive acids, fuels, and other harsh substances, it’s essential to invest in seals designed to endure over time. That includes investing in a high-performance material like Viton (a fluoroelastomer also known as FKM).
Timco Rubber works closely with your business to design and supply seals that address your exact needs. That includes providing premium Viton rubber seals that can handle demanding environments such as high-temperature applications, and atmospheric oxidation, and more. Viton seals address those issues thanks to the following performance capabilities:
- Excellent solvent and oil resistance.
- Excellent chemical resistance, including compatibility with vegetable oils, alcohols, and diluted acids.
- Excellent resistance to aging and sunlight.
- Good resistance to tearing and abrasions.
- Good compression set.
- Tensile strength range of 500-2,000 PSI.
- Max elongation of 300%.
- Able to withstand temperatures ranging from -10 to 600°F (-23 to 315°C).
Our experts also help you address any design challenges your face. An FKM seal for an aerospace application is going to be a lot different than one for a car, and we have the experts and manufacturing partners to accommodate your needs. That includes being able to address the following options and opportunities when it comes to custom engineering your Viton seals:
- The ability to manufacture Viton seals in multiple ways (custom molding, die cutting, extrusions, etc.).
- Coextruded Viton seals made with one of many other plastic or rubber materials.
- Precision manufacturing capabilities to address tight tolerances for highly-engineered seals and strict sealing.
- Custom and standard diameters, groove depths, and profile shapes (D, E, P, etc.) for specific seal designs.
- The ability to accommodate a wide range of widths and thicknesses.
- Seals cut to a specific length for applications or easier shipping and bundling.
- Added parting lines to minimize leak paths.
- Optional part engravings for added texture or branding purposes.
