Viton Sponge Gaskets
Advanced Seals and Gaskets offer a huge choice of high-quality gaskets, cut from a range of materials, some of which are designed for unique industries and applications, one such material is Viton sponge, which has been specially formulated to resist extreme temperatures ranging between -25°C to +204°C, and a vast number of chemicals, liquids and acids.
Viton sponge is manufactured in roll form with thicknesses starting at 3.18mm, which ASG convert into various other products including gaskets. Our Viton sponge 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. Viton sponge gaskets are often taken for use with sealing against dust, air and moisture, gap-filling between uneven surfaces or for reducing unwanted noise and vibration.
What are Viton Sponge Gaskets?
Viton sponge is 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 a skin on both faces, designed to improve tear resistance, which makes cutting gasket from this material much easier.
Viton sponge 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.

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 Sponge Gaskets?
Viton sponge gaskets have a vast number of highly desirable resistance and mechanical properties, making them the number one choice for sealing, gaskets and insulating application in harsh environments.
Not only is Viton sponge 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 mean this material can 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 Gaskets
- Environmental resistance (ozone/weather)
- High Chemical Resistance
- Weather & hot water-resistant
- High-Temperature Range
- Fuel, oil, lubricant resistance
- Withstand Challenging Environments
The Advantages of Using Viton Sponge Gaskets
There are many advantages to using Viton sponge gaskets 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 will not allow the ingress of air or fluid into its cell structure.
Viton sponge is 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. Viton Sponge pads can be cut from sheets that have been split down or laminated to achieve non-standard thicknesses where required.
