Is fluorocarbon the same as Viton?

Viton® is the brand name for fluorocarbon rubber polymers of the Chemours Company. This type of polymer is used extensively by ERIKS, however we do not claim or promote the use of any specific brands of polymers in our compounds.

Is FKM and Viton the same?

These rubber compounds give exceptional heat resistance with compatibility across many fluids or chemical exposures. The most commonly known name for these compounds is “Viton,”™ which has become the generic name for all FKM polymers and rubber compounds.

Is NBR the same as Viton?

Two of the most commonly approved elastomers, Nitrile (popularly referred to as NBR or Buna-N) and Viton® (Fluorocarbon rubber). Both materials are a great choice for general industrial use, they offer excellent compression set resistance and have a versatile set of properties list of applications and properties.

Which is better Viton or EPDM?

Temperature – Viton® temperature resistance ranges from -20°C to 210°C, while EPDM temperature resistance ranges from -45°C to 145° This means that both are excellent for extreme temperatures, but EPDM has a slight edge in colder temperatures, while Viton® is better for heat resistance at higher temperatures.

Is Viton plastic or rubber?

Viton is a brand of synthetic rubber and fluoropolymer elastomer commonly used in O-rings and other molded or extruded goods.

What material is Viton?

Viton™ is a fluoropolymer elastomer and synthetic rubber compound, trademarked by DuPont under this brand name. It’s a fluorinated hydrocarbon rubber product with amazing capabilities, designed to withstand even the most challenging of environments.

What kind of material is Viton?

synthetic rubber compound
Viton™ is a fluoropolymer elastomer and synthetic rubber compound, trademarked by DuPont under this brand name. It’s a fluorinated hydrocarbon rubber product with amazing capabilities, designed to withstand even the most challenging of environments.

Is Viton the same as Teflon?

Viton vs Teflon (PTFE) – Viton offers a greater temperature resistance but falls short of Teflons(PTFE) chemical resistance. Also, Teflon is slightly less thermally resistant but offers much more in the way of non-adhesive properties.

Are Viton O rings fuel resistant?

Viton® O-rings from Parker offer excellent resistance to high temperatures, ozone, oxygen, mineral oil, synthetic hydraulic fluids, fuels, aromatics and many organic solvents and chemicals—making it excellent for O-ring, gasket and seal materials.

Is Viton better than silicone?

Silicones are very stable at low and high temperatures. Viton provides excellent resistance to compression set at high temperatures which accounts for its ability to maintain sealing force and remain tough and elastic even after long exposure to 392 degree F.

Why is Viton so expensive?

A Viton™ o ring will tend to be significantly more expensive than the equivalent nitrile component. This is because it simply does the job where other products cannot.

Is Viton more expensive than EPDM?

Viton is an exceptional material with a wide range of applications. It is, however, approximately eight times more expensive than EPDM.

What’s the difference between Buna and Viton sealants?

As a sealing option, the crucial difference between Buna and Viton is the temperature range the materials function in. Viton is the choice over Buna for high-temperature applications. Viton seals hold indefinitely at temperatures up to 400°F and can last up to 48 hours at temperatures up to 600°F. Buna is effective to 250°F.

Which is better Viton a or Viton GF?

Viton™“GF” and Viton “ETP” are two new super chemical resistant Viton™compounds developed to solve critical sealing problems. Viton™“GF” and Viton “ETP” are much more chemical resistant than the old standby Viton “A”, which has been the backbone of the Viton™compound line until now.

What kind of applications can Viton be used for?

Viton Rubber Resin Ball Applications Reliable in extreme heat and weather, Viton works well in demanding sealing applications, including aerospace and fuel/engine systems. Additional applications and industries include: Automotive manufacturing and seals

Why are vulcanizates based on Viton elastomers so good?

Vulcanizates based on Viton fluoroelastomers provide an exceptional balance of physical property character- istics, including the following features: • Resistance to temperature extremes: Heat—Viton withstands high temperature and simultaneously retains its good mechanical proper- ties better than most other elastomers.
