What is the difference between Viton® and FKM?

ANSWER -

 

There is a lot of confusion around the difference between Viton® and FKM rubber and people tend to interpret these as different materials.

This is however not the case. Both are single based materials called Fluoro Rubber.

-FKM is the abbreviated form for the fluoroelastomer according to ASTM. 

The Rubber Company supply commercial FKM rubber sheeting in rolls/sheet and convert to gaskets / seals.

-Viton® is the registered trademark of DuPont Performance Elastomers.

We also supply genuine FKM Viton rubber sheeting in rolls/sheet and convert to gaskets / seals.
