SRP is a leading converter of sheet rubber materials such as fluoroelastomer rubber. We manufacture high-quality custom fluoroelastomer rubber gaskets, seals, and other products for a variety applications and industries to companies around the world.
Fluoroelastomer rubber was originally introduced over 50 years ago to meet the needs of the aerospace industry for a high-performance elastomer. Since then, the use of fluoroelastomers has spread quickly to many other industries, including the automotive, oil, fluid power, appliance and chemical industries and has developed a reputation for its outstanding performance in very hot and extremely corrosive environments.
Fluoroelastomers are particularly valued for their excellent heat stability and resistance to aggressive fuels and chemicals. All Viton™ fluoroelastomer sheet rubber products can be supplied with Pressure Sensitive Adhesives.
Viton™ Sheet Rubber Products Include:
- Commercial Viton™ A
- Commercial Brown Viton™ A
- Premium Viton™ A
- Premium Viton™ B
- FDA Viton™ A
- Mil-Spec Viton™ A
Viton™ A exhibits a broad range of resistance to oils, fuels, lubricants and most mineral acids. It has very good resistance to many aliphatic hydrocarbon fluids that act as solvents for many other rubbers. Exceptionally good compression set attributes even at temperatures that can embrittle other non-fluorinated elastomers. It also exhibits good resistance to atmospheric oxidation, sun, and weather, and has excellent resistance to fungus and mold. Viton™ A can also be supplied with military spec requirements.
Viton™ B has greater resistance and retains flexibility better after dry heat aging than Viton™ A. It is recommended for applications requiring maximum retention of elastic properties combined with good mechanical properties. Viton™ B offers superior resistance to both diluted and concentrated aggressive acids.
FDA Viton™ A is well suited for food and lab applications where FDA compliance is required. This material has good chemical resistance, high temperature properties and is resistant to corrosives. Safe to use for repeated food exposure. Made with 100% virgin Viton™ fluoroelastomer.
