VITON & FLUOROELASTOMER SHEET
Viton is a fluoropolymer elastomer and synthetic rubber compound, trademarked by Dupont under its brand name. It's a fluorinated hydrocarbon rubber product with amazing capabilities, designed to withstand the most challenging environments.
The standard grade for Viton is A grade, which has 66 percent fluorine content and is most commonly used in o rings and seals. Viton B offers beta fluid resistance and Viton F is particularly good for resistance to fuel permeation.
There are four major families of Viton fluoroelastomers; A, B, F and ETP.
A-types are dipolymers while B and F types are terpolymers.
Our brand names for fluoroelastomers include FKM and FPM.
