Advanced Seals & Gaskets produce some of the highest quality seals in the UK, taking the forms of gaskets, washers, O-rings, cord and extrusions, which are all designed for the purpose of preventing leaks or the ingress of air, fluids and gas. All our Viton seals are made to order and are based on samples or drawings provided by customers to ensure the final product perfectly fits the application.
As each form of seal needs to be manufactured using a different process, ASG has invested heavily in various machinery meaning we can produce both high and low volume Viton seals. As Viton has excellent resistance qualities and thermostable characters the material is used for many applications in industries such as aerospace, automotive, and power generation.
What is a Viton Seal?
Viton rubber is fluoroelastomer, a synthetic rubber that is fluorocarbon-based developed for high temperature and chemical resistance. Viton rubber seals are a device or substrate that is used to join surfaces together to either act as a separator or a barrier to prevent liquids, particles or gases from escaping or penetrating the application. Viton seal is a generic term for products often taking the form of cut gaskets, strips, washers, extruded profiles and cord, all manufactured using the same material. Many of our Viton seals can be supplied with a choice of self-adhesives which assists with the placement of the seal and to hold it in position.

Here at Advanced Seals & Gaskets, we offer seals in an array of materials such as EPDM, Silicone, Solid rubber, Cork, Plastics, Polyethylene, Polyurethane and PVC foam to name just a few. Seals are designed to prevent leakages once compressed between irregular surfaces, having the incorrect shape, size or material would cause the gasket to fail, all of our seals are manufactured using specialised machinery, as we understand the final cut and finish of the seal needs to be perfect.
Why use Viton Seals?
There are many different forms and profiles of Viton seals available, but as they are produced using the exact same material, they will still all possess the same mechanical properties making it a popular choice across many industries.
There are many reasons to use Viton rubber seals, 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 seals 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 seals are a popular choice of material for use within the automotive, aerospace, electrical appliance, 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 seals not only in different forms but also 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.
For more information on the above or other available grades of Viton rubber, please give our sales team a call.
Benefits of Viton Seals
- 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 Seals
There are many advantages to using Viton rubber seals 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 seals are available in a range of pre-manufactured thicknesses and the high resistance and durability of Viton rubber mean the pads are long-lasting and can be easily cut, moulded or extruded into the desired profile without the risk of tearing or stretching the material.
