Well known trade names are Viton® Extreme and Aflas®
The outstanding chemical resistance of fluoro-rubber is surpassed by Viton® Extreme. Modified polymer structure means swelling in solvents and strongly alkaline materials is greatly reduced, heat resistance and cold flexibility are preserved and the temperature range lies between -10 °C and +200 °C. Viton® O-rings are used wherever there are very aggressive chemicals demanding outstanding resistance properties.
Aflas® is a special natural rubber belonging to the new generation of fluoro-elastomers. Aflas® O-ring seals display exceptionally high resistance to a large number of specific media and chemicals, e.g. hot water, steam, acids, lyes, ammonia, bleaches, sour (H2S) gases and oils, as well as amines and especially media with additives containing amine and corrosioninhibitors, doped motor oils and gearbox oils, brake fluid and oxidised media.The temperature range is similar to that of fluorelastomers – from 10 °C up to +200 °C.
