Allied Packing and Rubber offers a fluoroelasotomer black rubber sheeting product also known as Viton (the trademarked DuPont brand name). This Viton equivalent rubber sheet costs more than our Neoprene, EPDM, or even our Nitrile (Buna-N) offerings. So all that being said, why choose Viton?
The properties of our Viton equivalent rubber allow it to resist attack by fuels, petrol, kerosene and most chemicals. It is the best choice in a situation where high heat and caustic chemicals are present. Allied Packing and Rubber stocks a Viton equivalent fluoroelastomer sheet that is a high performance rubber and is scented with cinnamon in the calendering process so that we can always identify it amongst all of our other rubber sheeting.
Our Viton equivalent sheeting performs exceptionally well in high temperatures (up to 400° F) and in corrosive environments. It also shows great resistance to fungus, mold, atmospheric oxidation and weather. So if you need a high-performance rubber that will stand the test of time, chemicals and heat, ask for Allied Packing and Rubber’s Viton equivalent sheet. Once you experience the performance of this rubber, you will know the answer to the “why Viton?” question.
