Viton Rubber gaskets are renowned for their exceptional resistance to extreme temperatures, chemicals, oils, and fuels, and as such commonly used in the automotive, aeronautical, gas and petrochemical industries. Their exceptional compression set properties ensure a long-lasting and reliable seal, while their low gas permeability enhances their effectiveness in critical sealing applications.
The manufacturing process of Viton rubber gaskets typically begins with the formulation of the Viton material, which combines fluoroelastomers with various additives to achieve the desired properties, such as resistance to heat, chemicals, and compression set. Once the formulation is prepared, it is processed through extrusion or calendering to create sheets or profiles of the Viton rubber. These sheets are then precision-cut into the desired gasket shapes using die-cutting or waterjet-cutting machinery.
At Dobson Gasket, we provide a comprehensive turnkey service to our clients. From materials specification and CAD design to manufacturing and worldwide distribution, we handle every step of the process. Whether you need customised gaskets based on your designs or templates or require gaskets that meet national and international standards, we've got you covered. Trust us for reliable and high-quality gaskets that meet your specific requirements.
Composed of fluoroelastomer, Viton Rubber gaskets exhibit outstanding resistance to extreme temperatures, ranging from -20°C to 204°C (-4°F to 400°F), making them ideal for use in both cryogenic and high-heat environments. Viton gaskets also demonstrate remarkable chemical resistance, effectively sealing against a wide spectrum of aggressive chemicals, acids, and fuels. This resilience extends their lifespan, reducing maintenance costs. Viton is also available as a white version for use in the food industry.
