FLUORATED RUBBER (FKM, Viton ®)

  • Fluoro rubber is by far the best elastomer available.
  • It offers excellent resistance to acids, bases, aliphatic hydrocarbons, oils, ozone, steam and a large number of corrosive applications.
  • Not suitable for amines, esters, ketones and steam.
  • Wide range of working temperatures.
