Viton Sponge Rubber
Working with a number of material suppliers gives Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd the ability to offer a broad selection of high-quality materials, some of which are very specialist grades, designed for use in very unique industries and applications, one such material is Viton sponge, used to manufacture products such as viton sponge rubber. Viton Sponge has been specially formulated to resist extreme temperatures ranging between -25°C to +204°C, and a vast number of chemicals, liquids and acids.
The viton sponge is manufactured in roll form with thicknesses starting at 3.18mm, which ASG can convert into various other products including sheets and cut parts such as washers, strips and gaskets using a range of in-house machinery consisting of splitters, bandsaws, presses, log cutters and Oscillating knife, supplied with a plain or self-adhesive finish using our in-house laminating service.
The Viton sponge can be taken as finished cut parts or in roll and sheet form, giving customers and end-users the flexibility to cover larger surface areas and to be able to cut their own parts out as and when they are required.
What is Viton Sponge Rubber
The viton sponge rubber is just one of many closed-cell materials on offer from Advanced Seals & Gaskets, which is used where a high-performance sponge is required for extreme environments. The material is manufactured in roll form, in thicknesses ranging from 3.18mm to 19.05mm, with skin on both faces, designed to improve tear resistance.
Rolls are sometimes preferred by customers as they have the freedom to cut their own sheets down into sizes of their choice as and when required, however, our on-site conversion and laminating services means we can supply finished cut parts to order, manufactured with a choice of finishes including foils, self-adhesives or other materials.

Why use Viton Sponge?
Viton sponge rubber offers a vast number of highly desirable resistance and mechanical properties, making it the number one choice for sealing, gasketing and insulating applications in harsh environments.
Not only is viton sponge rubber tear resistant due to its skin finish, but it also has a wide working temperature range of -20°C to +210°C and is resistant to chemicals, fuel, ozone, weather, lubricants, animal/vegetable oils and hydrocarbons.
These properties allow viton sponge rubber to be used for high temperature sealing such as within engine bays and other automotive applications, but also in applications requiring acoustic and vibration dampening in construction and resistance to oils, acids and other chemicals.
Benefits of Viton Sponge Rubber
- Environmental resistance (ozone/weather0
- Viton sponge rubber has a high Chemical Resistance
- Viton sponge rubber is weather & hot water-resistant
- High Temperature Range
- Fuel, oil, lubricant resistance
- Withstand Challenging Environments
The Advantages of Using Viton Sponge
There are many advantages to using viton sponge rubber sheets as the material is a high performance, versatile and durable, with increased strength from the skins, providing tear and puncture resistance. Being a closed cell sponge, even without the skins, the material can be used to manufacture a range of sealing components that will not allow the ingress of air or fluid into its cell structure.
Viton sponge rubber materials are available in a range of standard pre-manufactured thicknesses, which can be used to convert into a number of other products such as gaskets, strips, rolls, washers and many more, these rolls and sheets of material can also be split down or laminated to achieve non-standard thicknesses where required.
