Viton ® Tubing
Viton® is a fluoroelastomer developed by DuPont. It has outstanding chemical resistance properties and displays good anti-ageing properties and environmental resilience. This is combined with flexibility, making it and ideal peristaltic pump tube.
This tubing offers higher abrasion resistance than Santoprene® tubing. It exhibits good ozone resistance and impermeability to gases and water vapour.
The applications of Viton® include the transfer of aggressive liquids such as hydrocarbons, strong acids, oxidisers, aromatic and chlorinated solvents and extended use in harsh environments such as areas of high solar irradiation or extreme cold.
Viton® is premium tubing due to its exceptional properties. Where the full range of benefits are not required by the user, cost-effective alternatives exist, including Solva PVC tubing for the transfer of aromatic oils. Please contact us to discuss these.
Viton® is available as bridged tubing or in longer lengths of unbridged tubing.
We also offer Viton® tubing that is equivalent to other pump manufacturers ranges.
Although this is not a medical grade material, it is FDA approved for food contact applications. We also offer an industrial grade for non-food applications. Viton® contains no Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) as classified by the REACH environmental regulation and is RoHS compliant.
