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 thirteen 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 and 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. NewAge offers a wide size selection of Viton tubing, with two durometers to choose from to meet specific application requirements.
