Viton Tubing

Viton Tubing

Known for its resistance to oils and chemicals, this remarkable material retains its good mechanical and chemical resistance properties at extremely high temperatures better than any other known elastomer. Viton is also a standout material in its resistance to weather-related aging and ozone. In fact, samples weathered in direct Florida sunlight showed little or no change in properties or appearance after 13 years of exposure.

Viton’s fluid resistance far exceeds that of most other synthetic rubbers. It is resistant to hydrocarbons such as benzene, carbon tetrachloride, toluene, and xylene — fluids that normally act as solvents on rubber, disintegrating the material; leading to tubing failure. Engineers looking for exceptional resistance to petroleum-based fuels, oils, lubricants, and mineral acids at elevated temperatures will often turn to Viton, because most other thermoplastics cannot meet the necessary resistance levels.

  • Made of 100% pure Viton, a high performance synthetic rubber
  • Excellent temperature resistance: -25°F (Type B)/-7°F (Type A) to 400°F continuously; 600°F periodically
  • Offers one of the widest ranges of fluid and chemical resistance of any commercial rubber
  • Excellent resistance to oils, fuels, lubricants, and most mineral acids
  • Also resistant to many aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons such as carbon tetrachloride, benzene, toluene, and xylene
  • Excellent resistance to environmental exposure such as sunlight and ozone
  • Available from stock in 60 and 75 Shore A durometers (Type B and Type A)
