Viton® is a proprietary type of fluoroelastomer rubber, manufactured by DuPont Industries.
Viton® has one of the broadest ranges of chemical resistance in industry.
We use Viton® B grade, which is regarded as an ideal type for peristaltic pump use. This combines excellent flexibility with high chemical resistance and anti-ageing properties over a wide range of environmental conditions.
Viton® B is specified as a terpolymer of vinylidene fluoride, hexafluoropropylene and tetrafluoroethylene and has a higher fluid resistance than Viton® A.
Viton® B is not a medical class material, and the resultant extruded tubing is ideal for many industrial applications involving acids and oils.
