The Chemours Company will present its vast portfolio of Viton™ fluoroelastomers and Viton™ Free Flow™ processing aids at upcoming German Rubber Conference DKT 2018 in Nuremberg on the booth of its exclusive distributor for the EMEA region, Safic-Alcan, Puteaux/France (booth 339).

Viton™ - High-performance Fluoroelastomer


  • When Viton™ was developed in 1957, it was meant to meet the needs of the aerospace industry for a high performing seal elastomer. 
  • Since then, the high-performance fluoroelastomer has been expanded to many other industries – especially in the automotive, fluid power, appliance, and chemical fields. 
  • Viton™ fluoroelastomers offer outstanding performance in high temperatures and extremely corrosive environments. 
  • Benefits include long term heat resistance in air up to 200ºC, and short term resistance up to 260ºC, low permeation for gasoline and other fuels, longer seal life and resistance to aggressive chemicals.

Viton™ Fluoroelastomer in Automotive


In automotive applications, the latest generation of Viton™ has established a new performance standard for today's advanced fuel and engine systems.
  • Viton™ VTR-9307, a bisphenol-cured fluorinated rubber pre-compound for the production of fluoroelastomer (FKM) parts, provides improved system durability in extreme temperatures for fuels, oils, transmission fluids, and acid condensates. 
  • It combines the advantages of high temperature and chemical resistance with the added acid resistance necessary for applications such as EGR sensors, positive crankcase ventilation (PCV), diesel particulate filters, gaskets for charge air coolers, intake pipes, EGR coolers and quick connectors, in addition to O-rings and sleeves for air flow elements.

Viton™ Fluoroelastomer in Oil & Gas Applications


In tough oil and gas down-hole applications, Viton™ can help extend maintenance intervals and help protect against seal failure. Viton™ has delivered sealing at high temperatures in aggressive fluids for jet engines, thereby ensuring reliability, and can serve continuously at 200°C even after excursions to 290°C.

Viton™ FreeFlow™ Processing Aids


Viton™ FreeFlow™ stands for a family of processing aids for the extrusion of films or wire and cable harnesses. They help reduce die build-up, allowing processing to continue with consistent surface finish, without impact on properties or performance.

Effective April 1st 2018, Chemours and Safic-Alcan have expanded their long-standing distribution agreement for the above mentioned products to the whole EMEA region.
