Food of high-grade Viton® rubber sheeting (FKM) is a high-performance fluoroelastomer with several features and advantages. It has great or exceptional resistance to a wide range of chemicals and substances, including animal fats, food oils, petroleum, and most acids. This, combined with its high upper working temperature and food contact approvals, makes it ideal for applications in food, beverage, and pharmaceutical manufacturing where excessive temperatures are prevalent.
Other Viton® grades offered include white food quality for applications where the easily identifiable blue isn’t as vital and regular black Viton® for non-food contact applications.
Food of high-grade Viton® rubber sheeting is available in rolls, cut to profiles or gaskets using in-house CNC technology, or butt-jointed and bonded into rubber sleeves.
