OVERVIEW of Viton® Tubing

Viton® Tubing - (aka VITUBE®)
Known for its resistance to oils and chemicals, this remarkable material retains its good mechanical and chemical resistance properties at extremely high temperatures better than any other known elastomer. Viton is also a standout material in its resistance to weather-related aging and ozone. In fact, samples weathered in direct Florida sunlight showed little or no change in properties or appearance after 13 years of exposure. Viton's fluid resistance far exceeds that of most other synthetic rubbers. It is resistant to hydrocarbons such as benzene, carbon tetrachloride, toluene, and xylene — fluids that normally act as solvents on rubber, disintegrating the material; leading to tubing failure. Engineers looking for exceptional resistance to petroleum-based fuels, oils, lubricants, and mineral acids at elevated temperatures will often turn to Viton, because most other thermoplastics cannot meet the necessary resistance levels.

Professional Plastics offers a wide size selection of Viton tubing, with two durometers to choose from (75 and 60 Shore A durometers (Type A and Type B), to meet specific application requirements. The 60A durometer compound is specially formulated for use in peristaltic pumps. All VITUBE formulations are produced with 100% DuPont Dow Viton® fluoroelastomers (chemical name: fluorocarbon FKM) and are matte black in color. VITUBE contains no regrind material nor blends of other elastomers. If accidental burning of VITUBE occurs, extreme caution should be taken due to Hydrogen Fluoride and other decomposition products. Avoid inhalation of vapors liberated at service temperatures above 392°F. If your application calls for harder VITUBE, 90A durometer is available — call for details.

Suggested Applications:
Appliances • Automotive Fluids • Cable Jacketing • Chemical Processing & Transfer • Fuel & Oil Lines • Hot Lubrication • Model Engine Exhaust • Peristaltic Pumps • Roll Covers for Hot or Corrosive Service • Seals and O'-Rings • Solvents • Many More
