Viton Rubber Products

If fuel or oil is present in your application, Viton may be the right rubber material for your business. Timco Rubber provides businesses with custom-designed Viton parts to address the specific needs of your applications.

Viton: A Rubber Material for Fuel and Oil Applications

Viton rubber, a specific fluoroelastomer polymer (FKM), was introduced into the aerospace industry in 1957 to fulfill its needs for a high-performance elastomer. Following its introduction, the usage of Viton spread quickly to other industries including the automotive, appliance, chemical, and fluid power industries thanks to its natural resistance to both fuel and oil.

In addition to fuel and oil resistance, Viton has a strong reputation as a high-performance elastomer in very hot and extremely corrosive environments. These capabilities make Viton a natural choice for parts that need to succeed in demanding environments.
