O-ring

Viton® temperature rating

Due to its wide range of temperature range, chemical compatibility, low compression set, and excellent aging characteristics, fluorocarbonelastomers (FPM, Viton®) have grown to major importance in the seal industry.

Viton® temperature rating

Depending on the grade the working temperature range is considered to be -26°C to +205°/230°C (-15°F to +400°/440°F). But for short working periods it will take even higher temperatures.

Chemical resistance/applications

Fluorocarbon elastomers are highly fluorinated carbon-based polymers used in applications to resist harsh chemical and ozone attack. Fluorocarbon O-rings should be considered for use in aircraft, automobile and other mechanical devices requiring maximum resistance to elevated temperatures and to many fluids. FPM (FKM, Viton®, Fluorel®, Technoflon, Dai-El) resist:

  • mineral oils and greases,
  • aliphatic,
  • aromatic and also special chlorinated hydrocarbons,
  • petrol,
  • diesel fuels,
  • silicone oils and greases
  • high vacuum
