Viton® Extreme™ (ETP-600S) fluoroelastomers

High Performance Fluoroelastomer

ETP-600S fluoroelastomers combine the excellent thermal resistance of Viton® with the unique resistance to chemicals and to environments that have historically exceeded the performance of conventional fluoroelastomers, particularly highly caustic applications.

ETP-600S offers significantly improved processing and end-use properties while maintaining the excellent resistance to acids, hydrocarbons and low molecular weight esters, ketones and aldehydes, has low-temperature flexibility and is inherently resistant to base attack and volume changes in highly caustic solutions, amines and hot water. ETP-600S also has improved compression set resistance, and physical properties, all of which can improve seal performance and seal life.

ETP-600S is suitable for environments where FKMs or FEPMs are not satisfactory, such as in automotive – including heavy duty/off-highway vehicles – aeronautical, chemical processing, oil field industries (it was originally developed to resist the sour (H2S) petroleum environments commonly found in the crude oils), as well as the pharmaceutical and food industries. For even more demanding environments it also offers a lower cost alternative to FFKM perfluoroelastomer where fluid swell is not critical.
