Viton Rubber Gasket
Advanced Seals & Gaskets offer a huge choice of high-quality gaskets, cut from a range of materials, including Viton rubber, a high performance, durable synthetic material often used in applications requiring resistance to extreme temperatures and harsh chemicals.
Our Viton rubber gaskets are produced in-house, meaning we can manufacture bespoke items to match our customer's samples/drawings, from a simple rectangular picture frame gasket to a more complex shape with cut-outs, notches or bolt holes. Whether it’s a small sample batch or a multi-thousand run, we have a machine designed to quickly and accurately produce perfectly formed gaskets every time, these include a range of presses, CNC and kiss-cut machines.
Our Viton rubber is manufactured in a range of standard thicknesses starting at just 0.5mm, which can then be laminated to other materials or coated with a self-adhesive backing prior to the gaskets being cut. Viton rubber gaskets can be produced in different grades, each with different levels of resistance, formulated for use in different applications and environments.
What are Viton Rubber Gaskets?
Viton rubber is fluoroelastomer, a synthetic rubber that is fluorocarbon-based developed for high temperature and chemical resistance. Viton rubber gaskets sometimes come in the form of a strip or pad but are generally an intricately cut shaped piece of material placed between two surfaces to create a low-pressure seal preventing the leakage of liquids or gas and to seal against the intrusion of dust and debris. Due to its excellent resistance to many fuels, oils and acids and heat, Viton rubber gaskets are usually found used in the most demanding industries such as chemical processing and power generation.

Here at ASG, we offer gaskets in an array of materials such as EPDM, Silicone, Solid rubber, Cork, Felt & Textiles, Plastics, Polyethylene, Polyurethane and PVC foam to name just a few. Gaskets are designed for sealing between 2 or more irregular surfaces, where they prevent leakages once compressed, having the incorrect shape, size or material would cause the gasket to fail, therefore all of our gaskets are made in house with specialised machinery as we understand the final cut and finish of gaskets needs to be perfect
Why use Viton Rubber Gaskets?
There are many reasons to use Viton rubber gaskets, and it is often a go-to material for applications requiring a high-performance product to meet the demands that cannot be achieved using other polymers such as EPDM, Nitrile or Neoprene.
Viton rubber gaskets can withstand extreme temperatures ranging from -20° to 275°C and can maintain their physical and mechanical properties without breaking down even when used with water, acids, petrol, chemicals and oil due to their excellent resistance.
Viton rubber gaskets are a popular choice of material for use within the automotive, aerospace, oil and gas, and chemical industries - an FDA approved grade is also available for food and drink processing industries.
Advanced Seals & Gaskets work with a network of material suppliers and manufacturers, meaning we can offer Viton rubber gaskets in additional grades, the most popular of which are detailed below:
Viton Rubber-Type B - has very similar properties and resistances to Type A, but has a greater fluorine content, which gives it better resistance to fluids and sulfur dioxide, better flexibility after heat exposure and a temperature range of -30°C up to +300°C. Type B is generally used in the most demanding applications and industries such as chemical and power generation.
Viton FDA grades are available in blue or white options. This grade is suitable for use for food or pharmaceutical production even at high temperatures. FDA grade Viton rubber is extremely resistant to animal fats, oils, acids, chemicals and petroleum.

Benefits of Viton Rubber Gaskets
- Environmental resistance (Ozone, weathering, UV)
- High Chemical Resistance
- Weather Resistant
- Wide Temperature Range
- Resistance to acid, oil and petroleum based fluids
- Withstand Challenging Environments
Advantages of Using Viton Rubber Gaskets
There are many advantages to using Viton rubber gasket as the material is a high performance, versatile and durable, able to withstand high temperatures, is oil and chemical resistant (even at high temperatures) and will not degrade as easily as other elastomers over time when in contact with chemicals and fluids such as oil, acids, ozone or UV.
Other grades of Viton rubber are available to order for use in a range of specific industries, details of which can be made available upon request. Viton rubber gaskets are available in a range of pre-manufactured thicknesses and the high resistance and durability of Viton rubber mean the gaskets are long-lasting and can be easily cut into the desired profile without the risk of tearing or stretching the material.
