Viton™ Fluoroelastomer Gum
Viton™ Gums are fluoroelastomers that do not contain a curative. They can be crosslinked or cured with a diamine or bisphenol curative, and peroxide curative for the APA grades, to obtain the final vulcanizate. Viton™ Gums are most suitable for compounders that have the necessary setup for the curing or crosslinking processes.
Viton™ Fluoroelastomer Gums are classified as A, B, AL, and APA types based on the amount of fluorine in the polymer and the monomer composition. Higher levels of fluorine increase their resistance to solvents and other chemicals but reduce their low-temperature flexibility. Depending on the application, a careful selection of the base gum and curative combination gives the overall best properties of the final vulcanizate.
