Viton® Rubber Benefits & Advantages

Broad Chemical Compatibility

Viton® materials are compatible with many chemicals

  • lubricating and fuel oils
  • hydraulic oil
  • gasoline (high octane)
  • kerosene
  • vegetable oils
  • alcohols
  • diluted acids
  • and more

Comparing capabilities is important if you're considering a change in materials to increase reliability or accommodate more severe operating conditions.

Temperature Stability

Many applications require rubber parts to be stressed by accidental temperature excursions as well as increased operating temperatures to allow for increases in production. In certain instances, Viton® has been known to perform continuously at 204°C and even after short excursions to 315°C. Certain grades of Viton® rubber can also perform equally well in temperatures as low as -40°C.

FDA Compliant

If FDA compliance is necessary, Timco Rubber has access to certain types of Viton® materials that meet FDA requirements for food and pharmaceutical applications.

Meets Strict Environmental Regulations

As environmental regulations have raised the stakes against emissions, spills and leaks, Viton® high-performance seals have filled the gap where other elastomers fall short.
