What is a Viton Seal?

Viton rubber, a fluoroelastomer, stands out as a synthetic rubber rooted in fluorocarbon chemistry, celebrated for its remarkable high-temperature and chemical resistance attributes. These rubber seals play pivotal roles as they seamlessly unite surfaces, functioning either as dividers or formidable barriers, effectively thwarting the escape or infiltration of liquids, particles, or gases across diverse applications. Within the realm of Viton seals, a wide spectrum of products takes shape, including cut gaskets, strips, washers, extruded profiles, and cords, all meticulously crafted from this robust material. Furthermore, it's worth noting that numerous Viton seals in our inventory come equipped with self-adhesives, simplifying their placement and ensuring secure positioning.

    Why use Viton Seals?

    Viton seals come in various forms and profiles, but they all share the same exceptional mechanical properties due to their consistent material composition, making them a preferred choice across multiple industries. The versatility of Viton rubber seals is evident in their ability to meet high-performance requirements that often cannot be met by other polymers like EPDM, Nitrile, or Neoprene.

    The Viton rubber seals excel in extreme temperature conditions, withstanding a wide range from -20°C to 275°C while maintaining their physical and mechanical integrity. Their exceptional resistance to water, acids, petrol, chemicals, and oils ensures they endure even the harshest environments without degradation.

    The widespread adoption of Viton rubber seals extends to various industries, including automotive, aerospace, electrical appliances, oil and gas, and the chemical sector. For applications in the food and beverage processing industry, FDA-approved grades of Viton seals are also available, further highlighting their versatility and adaptability.

    Different Grades

    At Advanced Seals & Gaskets, we collaborate with an extensive network of material suppliers and manufacturers, granting us the capability to provide Viton rubber seals in diverse forms and additional grades. Among the most popular variations are:

    1. Viton Rubber-Type B: Exhibits properties and resistances akin to Type A but boasts a higher fluorine content, resulting in superior resistance to fluids, sulfur dioxide, increased flexibility following heat exposure, and an impressive temperature range of -30°C to +300°C. Type B finds its application in the most demanding industrial sectors, including chemical and power generation.

    2. The Viton FDA Grades: These grades are available in blue or white options and are well-suited for food or pharmaceutical production, even under elevated temperatures. FDA-grade Viton rubber showcases exceptional resistance to animal fats, oils, acids, chemicals, and petroleum.
