Viton Rubber Sheet is a premium grade elastomer used in the most demanding of applications. This rubber will withstand continuous exposure to temperatures between -15°C and +200°C and has very good physical and mechanical properties.
Sometimes known as FKM (often when it is not made with genuine Viton), Viton Rubber was originally developed for the aerospace industry to meet their demands for a high-performance elastomer. Since its’ introduction, it has been adopted by many other industries because of its excellent chemical resistance and all-round performance as a sealing material.
Viton rubber is particularly good at sealing oils, fuels, lubricants and mineral acids. It also has excellent resistance to aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons that can act as solvents with many other types of rubber.
This sheet rubber also features excellent compression set resistance across a wide range of temperatures (-15°C to +200°C), This is critically important as it allows Viton to continue to provide excellent seal performance in environments that can degrade other, non-fluorinated elastomers.
For more detailed information on our Viton Rubber Sheet’s chemical resistance, we’ve put together a handy (and very comprehensive) chemical table here.
Our Viton Rubber is manufactured in the USA using 100% genuine Chemours Viton polymer which ensures it delivers reliable, high quality performance. This grade contains 66% fluorine, is UV stable and highly resistant to degradation from ozone or weathering.

Applications for Viton Rubber
Because of its excellent temperature and chemical resistance, Viton Rubber is used in a vast array of industries and applications. It is most often utilised in the chemical processing, mining, pharmaceutical, power generation, food, beverage, pharmaceutical and aerospace sectors. Typical applications for Viton Rubber Sheet include:
- Flange Gaskets for pipes, tanks and containers.
- Lining of tanks storing chemicals, oils, diesel, petrol or other types of aggressive media.
- Chemical transfer and joining sleeves.
- Expansion joints.
- Sealing and insulating strips.
- Isolation barriers.
- Chemical proof flashing.
Will you supply my order in one continuous length or multiple lengths?
We’ll always supply as long a roll as possible to give you maximum versatility (nothing worse than being just a little too short). Maximum roll length for all thicknesses listed here is 10 metres so if you ordered 8 of one size, it would be supplied in a single roll.
