Viton was first introduced in the 1950's for the aerospace industry to fulfill
the need for a high performance sealing elastomer. Since then, viton has
maintained a reputation for its outstanding performance in extreme heat and
extremely corrosive environments.

Viton offers an exceptionally high resistance to compression set, even at high
temperatures. It is known to have an exceptionally good resistance to
oxidation, sun and weather, along with an excellent resistance to fungus and
mold.

Viton is capable of withstanding high temperatures while retaining its good
mechanical properties, and is better at it than most other elastomers. The oil
and chemical resistance are virtually unaffected by elevated temperatures, and
the compounds remain relatively elastic indefinitely up to temperatures of
400? F (204? C)

The high temperature limits are as follows:

* 3,000 hours @ 450? F (232? C)
* 1,000 hours @ 500? F (260? C)
* 240 hours @550? F (288? C)
* 48 hours @ 600? F (316? C)

Viton is usually serviceable in applications down to between 0? F and -10? F
(-18? C to -23? C). It has also been proven to be satisfactory for static
seals under conditions approaching absolute zero temperatures.
