Fluoroelastomers (Viton®) O-Rings

Common Names
FKM, Fluoropolymer.

Trade Names:  Viton®, Fluorel®, Technoflon®, Dai-El®.

General Description:

FKM compounds are widely used in chemical, automotive, aerospace and industrial applications.  These compounds offer excellent chemical and temperature resistance. There are many additional specialty compounds based on A, B, F, GLT, GFLT, LTFE and ETP polymer types.

Features

Limitations:

·      Steam, hot water, amines, polar solvents, low molecular weight organic solvents and glycol-based brake fluids.  Ammonia gas, low molecular organic acids (formic and acetic acids).

Service Temperature:

·         2o to 400o F (-16o to 204o C).  General compounds

·         -67o to 432o F (-55o to 222o C).  Specialty compounds
