FKM Viton Products

All of our Fluoroelastomer (FKM) products are manufactured with 100% virgin FKM Fluoroelastomer polymer sourced from the world’s leading manufacturers. Fluoroelastomers were originally introduced over 50 years ago to meet the needs of the aerospace industry for a high-performance elastomer. Since then, the use of fluoroelastomers has spread quickly to many other industries, including the automotive, oil, fluid power, appliance and chemical industries and has developed a reputation for its outstanding performance in very hot and extremely corrosive environments. Fluoroelastomers are particularly valued for their excellent heat stability (200°C) and resistance to aggressive fuels and chemicals.

Our FKM Viton Rubber Products are available in Premium, Commercial & Spec Grades or as a specialty product.
