This remarkable material (FKM) retains its great mechanical and chemical resistance properties at extremely high temperatures better than any other known elastomer. Known for its resistance to oils, chemicals, weather-related aging and ozone. Viton tubing's fluid resistance far exceeds that of most other synthetic rubbers. Customer wanting exceptional resistance to petroleum-based fuels, oils, lubricants, and mineral acids at elevated temperatures will often turn to FKM(Viton) Tubing , resistance level ishigher than most other thermoplastic elastomers.
Sevitsil offers a wide size selection of Viton tubing to meet specific application requirements. For peristaltic pumps Shore A 60 hardness tubing are specially manufactured as for other application Viton tubing are available at Shore A 90 Hardness also.

Silicone rubber is an elastomer composed of silicone(present in silica) together with carbon,oxygen and hydrogen.
IN 1930, JAMES FRANKLIN HYDE RAN THE FIRST RESEARCH TO PRODUCE COMMERCIAL SILICONES.
Silicon is an element which is present in silica (sand) while silicone rubber is manufactured by extracting silicon from silica and passing it through hydrocarbons. It's then mixed with the other chemicals to create silicone.
A silicone or polysiloxane is a polymer made up of siloxane (−R2Si−O−SiR2−, where R = organic group).
