FKM Viton ASTM D 2000, SAE J200 Type/Class: HK
Fluorocarbon rubber has excellent resistance to high temperatures, ozone, oxygen, mineral oil, synthetic hydraulic fluids, fuels, aromatics and many organic solvents and chemicals. Low temperature resistance is normally not favorable and for static applications is limited, although in certain situations it is suitable down to –40°F (–40°C).
Under dynamic conditions, the lowest service temperature is between 5°F and 0°F (–15°C and –18°C). Gas permeability is very low and similar to that of butyl rubber. Special fluorocarbon compounds exhibit an improved resistance to acids, fuels, water and steam.
|Heat Resistance||Up to 400°F (204°C) and higher temperatures with shorter life expectancy.|
|Cold Flexibility||Down to -15°F (–26°C) with some varieties to -40°F (-40°C).|
