  Notes

VITUBE’s main attributes include exceptional chemical resistance at elevated temperatures. It has withstood continuous service temperatures of 600F for 48 hours and 500F for 1000 hours while maintaining its mechanical properties. However, care should be taken at these elevated temperatures. Tests should be performed to determine application suitability.

VITUBE possesses the high resiliency of an elastomer as well as the good mechanical properties of conventional synthetic rubbers. The heat and chemical resistance factors, however, usually go far beyond the range of other rubbers.

The 60A durometer compound is specially formulated for use in peristaltic pumps. All VITUBE formulations are produced with 100% Viton fluoroelastomers (chemical name: fluorocarbon FKM) and are matte black in color. VITUBE contains no regrind material nor blends of other elastomers.

If accidental burning of VITUBE occurs, extreme caution should be taken due to Hydrogen Fluoride and other decomposition products. Avoid inhalation of vapors liberated at service temperatures above 392°F.

If your application calls for harder VITUBE, 90A durometer is available — call for details.
