Viton Sponge Rubber

Collaborating with multiple material suppliers empowers Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd to provide an extensive array of high-quality materials, including specialized grades tailored for unique industries and applications. One such material is Viton sponge, employed in crafting products like Viton sponge rubber.

Viton sponge stands out for its special formulation, enabling it to withstand extreme temperatures spanning from -25°C to +204°C, along with a wide range of chemicals, liquids, and acids. This versatile material is manufactured in roll form, with thicknesses commencing at 3.18mm. Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd can efficiently convert it into various other products, including sheets and cut components such as washers, strips, and gaskets. This process is facilitated by a suite of in-house machinery, comprising splitters, bandsaws, presses, log cutters, and oscillating knives. Additionally, Viton sponge can be supplied with a plain or self-adhesive finish through our in-house laminating service.

Customers and end-users have the flexibility to acquire Viton sponge as finished cut components or in roll and sheet formats. This versatility accommodates larger surface areas and the capability to cut parts as needed, enhancing adaptability and convenience.

What is Viton Sponge Rubber

Viton sponge rubber is among the diverse closed-cell materials provided by Advanced Seals & Gaskets, ideal for demanding environments. This material is produced in roll form, with thickness options ranging from 3.18mm to 19.05mm, featuring skin on both sides to enhance tear resistance.

Some customers favor rolls for the flexibility of cutting their own sheets to their specific needs as required. Nevertheless, our on-site conversion and laminating services enable us to offer custom-finished cut parts, available with a selection of finishes, including foils, self-adhesives, or other materials. This versatility ensures we cater to a broad spectrum of preferences and requirements.
