• Fluoroelastomers are also known as fluorocarbons, and the most notable brand is the Viton® brand.
  • This type of rubber can take temperatures of up to nearly 400ᵒ Fahrenheit, and almost 600ᵒ Fahrenheit if used for short periods of time.
  • They are resistant to weathering, ozone, oils, and most chemicals as well. However, Viton® rubber is also very expensive, so it is not suitable for all applications.
  • Most applications that use fluoroelastomers include seals, gaskets, accumulator bladders, diaphragms, and O-rings. The Viton® brand is part of the DuPont Company.
